523 W. 6th St., Suite 826, Los Angeles, CA 90014, United States

Though the city’s not widely known for its architecture, downtown L.A. is home to an eclectic assortment of extraordinary buildings. The Los Angeles Conservancy, a local historical preservation organization, conducts fun, educational walking tours that showcase many of downtown’s unique landmarks. One of the most engaging is the tour through the long-forgotten Broadway theater district, where old movie palaces—some still in use for events—exhibit Renaissance Revival, Spanish Baroque, and Beaux-Arts designs, all in varying states of renovation or disrepair. Other conservancy walking tours include Little Tokyo, City Hall, the Biltmore Hotel, and Union Station—all $10 for nonmembers, and led by passionate, knowledgeable volunteers.
