Enjoyed a free tour that focused on the exterior of the Walt Disney concert hall and the interiors of the Taper, Chandler and the Ahmanson theaters. We saw the stunning stage settings within and the no-expense spared auditorium of each one.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
