Los Angeles is one of my favorite places in the world, both for the atmosphere of the region as well as for the variety of activities there. It has a beach for those who like the sea, a trail for the more adventurous and the city center is always full of options for those who prefer more urban environments.
I know that a lot of people have LA on their travel wishlist, so I decided to separate some tours that can be done for free in the region. The city has a high cost of living, so saving is always important. Write down all the tips, I promise that all places are amazing!
If you like contemporary art, take the opportunity to visit The Broad. The museum is free every day of the week, so it is usually full. They ask you to book your ticket in advance, so be sure to enter the site to guarantee yours.
The works are super modern and creative, the ones you never imagined seeing in life, you know? The most famous exhibition hall is the Infinity Mirrored Room – The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away. The walls of this room are surrounded by mirrors and lights that transform the space into a beautiful and super original environment. It’s worth taking a trip to it 😉
Canals of Venice
The part of the city where the Venice Canals are located is known mainly for Venice Beach. However, the canals are also worth at least one visit – especially if you want to experience a different and super trendy area of LA.
They are between Venice Boardwalk and Abbot Kinney, forming a wonderful landscape. The neighborhood is residential and several houses are around the canals. Have you ever imagined that dream to live in such a place? It would be like having a movie set at your disposal every day!
Want to have a surreal view of Los Angeles without paying anything? Just go to the Griffith Observatory. Observation through telescopes and the tour around the entire space are free. The only thing paid for there is the planetarium show, but it is more interesting for those who go to the place in order to know a little about astronomy.
The landscape is so beautiful that it makes you want to look at it for hours. It is amazing for walks both day and night, because when the sun goes down its star makes everything even more special. Just choose which time you prefer to go, or go on different days to see the scenery day and night 🙂
Those who love books and never stop visiting bookstores while traveling cannot leave The Last Bookstore out of the script. She is charming, leaving anyone in love with the place. In the store you will find tunnels of books, shelves with copies separated by color and even a corner with books “flying”. The place is close to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, that is, you can take the opportunity to walk around the region and know that they are often hidden from tourists in a hurry!
If you’re the hiking type, I’m sure you’ll love Runyon Canyon. Despite all the effort to complete the trail along the mountain, the view from the top makes it all worthwhile. The place is also very frequented by city residents who go to exercise regularly. The walk is not very difficult, but it is tiring.
If this tour has interested you, be sure to go prepared, okay? Apply sunscreen, bring plenty of water and snacks to keep your body ready for the effort. Ah, if you go by car you can go to the top of the mountain directly! Just enter through the park’s top gate. It is a good option for those who just want to enjoy the scenery 😉
The Bradbury Building is the oldest commercial building in the city. It still retains all the charm of when it was built, especially with its unique environment. With black stairs and elevators, with the entire structure showing, the building has a rustic touch mixed with delicate details. Visitors can only go up to the second floor, but it is still a pleasant walk that will yield incredible photos.
Here on the website there is also a post with places for you to take wonderful photos there, to read just click here! In addition, there are already several vlogs on the channel with our experience in LA, be sure to watch 😉
