Take the tiny little tram, “Angels Flight,” from Hill St. and 4th St., which will take you to Bunker Hill. Bunker Hill is a neighborhood of Los Angeles where past and present coexist. Between Downtown Grand Ave. 1st St. and 4th St., Water Court, Omni hotel, Wells Fargo plaza, California Plaza, and Grand Market are located. Take some time to walk around the street and feel DTLA.

Located on Broadway and 3rd St., Grand Central Market is a marketplace where you can enjoy variety of food ranging from taco to pastrami sandwich. You can also have trendy breakfast sandwiched at Eggslut. Take a cup of gourmet coffee from GB and walk around the street to find Walt Disney Concert Hall and other nearby tourist attractions.
Art District is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Downtown Los Angeles. Even though it looks shady with factories located on the streets, this Southeast section of DTLA, surprising to find, is walker-friendly.
