Price: $99 Per Person

Today we are joined by professional step-on guide, Curt, a history buff with an expertise on the evolution of L.A., and especially loved by our clients for his charismatic personality and fun stories. Today we’ll explore L.A.’s Westside – a treasure trove of art, culture and dining. We’ll not only see the iconic sights, but also get to know some of the lesser known “hidden gems” on this side of town. We’ll begin downtown and travel west on Wilshire Blvd., one of L.A.’s most famous boulevards, to discover not only the most historic sights, but the newest developments as well. On a comprehensive driving tour, we’ll see the new Wilshire Grand Center – the upscale, world-class 73-story skyscraper on Wilshire Boulevard in the heart of Downtown that is now the tallest building on the West Coast! We’ll travel the famed “Miracle Mile,” home to a variety of museums and a collection of historic Art Deco structures. Learn about the Miracle Mile's stunning transformation from cow path to commercial artery on the south side of Wilshire Blvd. between La Brea and Fairfax Avenues. Curt will point out and discuss the latest developments here including the new luxury high rises, the LACMA and La Brea Tar Pits redesigns, and the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. At LACMA we’ll pause to explore its unique outdoor art pieces including the forest of city streetlights called “Urban Light,” and “Levitated Mass” – a 340-ton “levitated” boulder at its centerpiece. Enjoy time at leisure for browsing and lunch on your own at the famous Original Farmer’s Market or The Grove, each offering a variety of eateries with outdoor dining. Enjoy time at leisure to shop at Eataly, the two-story, 27,000 square foot emporium featuring various food counters that vend all things related to Italian cuisine – from Italian-produced small batch olive oil to wine, craft beer, spirits, fresh-made mozzarella, produce, bakery, desserts and more. ­This tour involves moderate walking. All visits subject to change.
