Three-day holiday weekends are the perfect opportunity to discover new parts of your neighborhood or explore your city like a tourist. The LA Fashion District’s 100+ blocks of creativity, community and culture guarantee a fun day of vibrant adventure!
This guide is a suggested itinerary for a full day of leisure exploration. Modify the schedule to best suit your personal preferences — maybe you’ll linger at the Tuck Hotel for after-dinner cocktails — and be sure to tag all of your adventures using #lafashiondistrict on social media.
Enjoy “A Day in the LA Fashion District”!
10:30 AM – Brunch
Get a late start to your day and enjoy brunch at the popular Poppy + Rose. Because who doesn’t love brunch?
12 PM – Shopping
It’s time to walk off that delicious brunch. Head on over a couple of blocks to enter the famously unique Santee Alley, most popular for bargain shopping and a lively atmosphere. Here you’ll find anything from toys to formal wear!
2 PM – Lunch
Lunch time already? You’re in luck because Sonoratown has just been named an “Essential LA Restaurant” by Eater LA and they live up to the laundry list of awards an accolades they’ve received over the past year.
3 PM – Fun
If you haven’t been to an Escape Room, this is your chance. Escape Rom LA opened in December 2014 and is now LA’s largest and most popular escape game company, presenting more than 80 games each week. Now that you’re fueled with the best tacos in town, you should be up for the mental challenge ahead. Good luck!
4:30 PM – Art
If you escaped successfully, visit Avenue des Arts…literally right next door. Here you can see art from well known artists such as Matt Gondek, Brett Crawford, Pez and so many more.
7:30 PM – Dessert
Last but not least, no day is complete without dessert. Little Damage is the place to go for a delicious treat AND a pretty new Instagram photo. Check out their IG feed to get a glimpse at what’s in store (or cone) for you.
We’ll see you soon!
