This summer, we're all about getting on two wheels, being tourists in our own city, and exploring the spaces and places that we've taken for granted. We asked Team Thousand to share their favorite places in LA that everyone, tourists and locals alike, needs to see.
"The Bradbury Building is one of the first places I visited when coming to DTLA and was immediately blown away by the stunning architecture. Even though I have only been a handful of times, this place reminds me of how one can always find these elegant landmarks in the busiest of cities. Grand Central Market is close by and a great stop to grab some grub!"
JAZMIN, CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE:
"The Last Bookstore is such a cool hang out that houses a labyrinth of books, plenty of vinyl and showcases local artists. It's a unique, analog experience in an increasingly digital world that allows you to unwind and discover something new every time you visit."
"Skip Runyon Canyon or the Hollywood Sign – instead, I trek up Mt. Hollywood (the second tallest peak in Griffith Park) for the best views of the Observatory, Downtown LA, the Hollywood Sign, and on especially clear days, the ocean."
"Nothing says summer more than renting a duffy boat in Long Beach!"
"I love visiting The Getty Center. Not just beautiful architecture on top of Los Angeles, it's filled with art and plants. It is even more spectacular when there is a music performance playing in the background as you take in all the views."
"One of my favorite places to visit in Los Angeles would be Newcombs Ranch in the Angeles National Forest. It's about 25 miles north up Hwy 2 and is a huge destination for cyclists, motorcyclists, and classic car enthusiasts. A great place for a quick escape from the city where you can enjoy some trees and grab a bite to eat."
