I recently did a photography journey through downtown and wandered into City Hall. I asked the guards if there was anything to see and they recommended the 27th floor observation deck. It is open to the public til 5 p.m. Wow, what a treat!! Amazing views of downtown are a photographer's dream and there were plenty to be had from up there. Besides the views, the 3rd floor also has great hallways to photograph and tapestries that line archways in the ceilings. It's definitely worthy of a stop while in downtown!

If you're in downtown, it is certainly a must! The achitecture on the 3rd and 4th floors is very cool with intricately laid tiles. The 26th and 27th floors, the top ones, are surreal and the view is great!

Los Angeles city hall is recognized around the world for it's distinct architecture. This world famous landmark opened in 1928. There's a lot of history here as free tours of this building will take you from the basement level all the way to the top observation level for spectacular city views. Tours will also take you to the heart of city government, the mayors office and city council chambers. This is a must see while touring Los Angeles.
