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.

About 4 blocks of old victorians. Stopped and talked with an inhabitant who gave us extra knowledge-- like Michael Jackson's Thriller video was made at the house, etc. That really added to the visit. Driving or creeping along the freeways in downtown LA is a nightmare so don't go near it if you are in a hurry. For instance, 45... More

Don't miss this if you do. I guess we are kind of weird in that when we travel we don't do museums and the usual touristy stuff. We like to ride or walk through neighborhoods. People watch and building gawk. Shop with the masses and feel like we belong. So what a treasure this is. A neighborhood that is perfectly... More

Really nice drive through this historic part of LA. Spend a few minutes appreciating the architecture. I wasnt sure if there were specific things to stop and do, but the drive was nice

We visit with my husband and toddler and wasn't dissapointed. The houses were very beautiful and made you feel you went back in time. We wished there were more to watch since we got spoiled after seeing them but there were enough to for us take a nice memory in our minds of how the neighborhoods use to be. A... More

Angelino Heights is considered one of the first suburbs of Los Angeles. Built on a hill just a few miles west of the city center, the area was developed in the mid-1880s by William W. Stilson and Everett E. Hall. It is one of the few neighborhoods in Los Angeles remaining intact from the Victorian era with this style of... More
