FINDING THE CUTE IN HIDDEN PLACES
Deep in the concrete jungle of Downtown Los Angeles lies the Arts District where industrial-loving adventurers will find large, historic buildings with exposed brick walls, murals, vegan restaurants, ice cream shops, and arcade games.
Read below to find some of my favorite must-see places to go and get your om-nom on in our beautiful Arts District.
The city is decorated in murals, by both simple and eclectic artists alike.
