Bird + Hilton have teamed up to take you on a self-guided tour of Los Angeles. Discover a new favorite spot or revisit an old one when you take a ride with Bird.
Los Angeles, the city of effortless cool and endless summer. Widely recognized for its iconic palm trees and picturesque beaches, there are noteworthy neighborhoods on the rise, making Los Angeles a true must explore (whether a local or visitor) this summer. With more Birds spanning neighborhoods in Los Angeles than ever before, it’s time to ride.
Beat the Traffic (and the Parking) with the Perfect Day in Downtown LA
Pack your bags and get ready to relax. Make yourself at home at the Hilton Checkers or DoubleTree Los Angeles – Downtown in the heart of Los Angeles. Both hotels have rooftops boasting impressive views of the city and are located within minutes of The Museum of Contemporary Art, the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Grammy Museum.
Zip on down to Grand Central Market for a quick bite and find tacos, ramen and even an PB&J restaurant inside this historic food hall. This venue boasts diverse and delicious vendors where you can truly find something for everyone in your party. Park right in front and head over to the neon lights of the market for the Instagram Story panel and then try your best to decide what you’re hungry for.
For another premiere art experience worth writing home about, check out the Art Walk in DTLA. Wildly different than the usual museums, the art walk is a self-guided art phenomenon highlighting underground artists and galleries in DTLA. Be the first to view major artists on the rise.
Keep building that IG coverage and really show off the City of Angels. You’ll find murals all over LA and there’s no better way to see them than by scooter. Set your phone’s GPS to 700 S. Flower Street and take a photo with one of the iconic pair of angel’s wings that you can find all over the city.
For a taste of something a little different, hop on a scooter and head over to ROW DTLA. Located in the old LA Terminal Market, this trendy block has some of the most unique art, clothing and food that you’ll find. Visit on Sundays for the weekly Smorgasburg street food festival or hang out on the weekdays to enjoy artisan chocolates and Tartine Bakery’s Los Angeles location.
Grab your scooter and end your day with the lights of Chinatown. Watch the neighborhood light up in the Central Plaza and stay for festivals and events that take place throughout the year. For some amazing food and an early dinner, check out Chinatown’s Howlin Ray’s. This place requires an unwavering dedication of time and effort but it is worth every bite. Mouthwatering Nashville fried chicken meets Los Angeles. And while you’re in the neighborhood, make a quick stop at Ooga Booga for one of a kind, rare L.A. vintage items. You’ll be wishing you had more room in your carry-on.
With so many things to do in Los Angeles, we know where we’re headed this summer.
