Local Experts: Los Angeles, Rachel B. Levin

Rachel B. Levin is a writer and editor who spent the first decade of her career covering the best of Los Angeles—its vibrant dance, theater, nightlife, food, and more. Rachel began writing for Travel + Leisure in 2014, when she became the Los Angeles Local Expert, offering guides to everything from the best brunch in town to the coolest movie theaters. Prior to joining Travel + Leisure, Rachel was a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times, where she wrote for both the Arts & Culture and Travel sections and had a recurring column about LA dance subcultures called “Boogie Nights.” She has also contributed stories about Los Angeles to Time Out, Westways, KCET, The Travel Channel, HuffPost, and more. While she’s still known to put on her dancing shoes and hit the town, these days you’re more likely to find her writing stories that illuminate our inner world: intimate profiles, quirky personal essays, and features on health and wellness.
