The Los Angeles Conservancy has put together a special one-day event exploring the District and all the wonderful places and things it has to offer. LA Conservancy is a nonprofit membership organization that works through education and advocacy to recognize, preserve, and revitalize the historic architectural and cultural resources of Los Angeles County. The event will take place October 20th and offers several walking tours, set to happen throughout the day.
Each tour will allow for an hour-long lunch break and a 30-minute break between the afternoon tours. All schedules consist of the following three tours:
In addition to these three tours, they will also be having two mini tours: City Market and L.A.’s Forgotten Chinatown and Seed to Flower: The Growth of L.A.’s Flower Markets.
Come explore the district and be inspired. To learn more about the tour and how to book, visit the LA Conservancy’s event page here.
