I don't really have much to say about this experience except "eh". I had heard a lot of great things but I was very underwhelmed by the whole thing.

I read Charles Fleming's "Secret Stairs" in LA and decided to visit Angelino Heights. The 2.5 miles walk starts from Echo Park Lake and continues to Angelino Heights (about 2 hours). I also checked out the LA Conservancy website for additional information prior to the walk. Both sources provide general information about the neighborhood which helps a lot. It was... More

We took the Angelino Heights walking to with the Los Angeles Conservancy. The tour is offered the first Saturday and reservations are required. Google the Los Angeles Conservancy for information about the tour. I have driven Carroll Street and Angelino Heights a number of times.This time I parked the car and walked the neighborhood. A treat was being invited into... More

If you've seen San Francisco, these three streets will seem very little compared to the thousands of Victorian gems you can admire there. But having a little stroll down this quiet neighborhood is a treat. Please park your car and walk. It drove me nuts to see all these tourists slowing down in front of the best looking houses. The...

We drove Carroll Ave to look at the Victorian homes. Some were fully restored others were in varying degrees of repair. If you like the Victorian area or interesting architecture this is worth a visit. Wish there would have been a guided tour of the outside of these beautiful homes. All are privately owned, can only imagine what the interiors... More

We drove on CarrolL Ave. and just in 1 block there were about 12 beautiful Victorian homes. There were some on restoration. It's just a place to take photos; there are probably no tours to view inside the homes as these are livable homes but if you love that era and architecture, you will love this block. I believe there... More

We visited Angelino Heights, specifically Carroll Avenue on a LA Conservancy walking tour (held first Saturday of every month). It was a wonderful glimpse into LA's first real suburb, and latterly first recognised historic district. An informative and enjoyable two hours.

The area known as Angelino Heights, specifically Carroll Ave., and the two streets parallel to it, Kellam and Calumet, have old Victorian homes, one after another, and almost all are in great condition. If you are at all interested in architecture or history, this is a must-see. The streets a bit hilly, but nothing strenuous. It is a short distance... More

A lovely hill with beautiful old wooden victorian houses, near a green space, Echo Park. Pretty expensive, of course.

Nice little detour from the madness of LA traffic, just before the street grid of downtown. Take a 5 minute drive, or a 15 minute walk, and see why, historically, rich people built homes on hills.
