Summer 2017 Guide to LA
Our staff photographer Yamini Nambimadom, a Los Angeles local and chai aficionado, gives us the low-down on all the hottest spots she likes to frequent in LA. From the most mouthwatering food market the city has to offer, to one of Hollywood's most quaint and well-loved attractions, keep reading for some great ideas to add to your travel itinerary the next time you're in town!
1. Grand Central Market: Located in the heart of downtown, Grand Central Market will satisfy any of your stomach’s desires. Grand Central brings together the vibrant cultures and flavors of Los Angeles, with cuisine hailing from Italy to Korea and Brazil. Not only does the market have a wide array of food selections, it also hosts game nights, jazz concerts, trivia Tuesdays, and other fun events throughout the summer. It’s a perfect place to stop by during any LA adventure!
2. The Broad Museum: Opened just recently in 2015, not only is The Broad an incredible work of architecture, but it boasts a collection of over 2000 rotating pieces of contemporary art. Basquiat, Koons, Kruger, and Lichtenstein are among the many artists whose works are currently on display. The Broad’s Infinity Room is an incredible viewing experience as well. Make sure to go early, as the museum has limited capacity and the wait tends to be fairly long.
3. Hollywood Forever Cemetery: Unlike any ordinary cemetery, Hollywood Forever partners with Cinespia to bring cult-favorite films to Los Angeles every summer. Movie-goers can spread folding chairs, picnic blankets, and snacks across the eternal resting place of former Hollywood legends as they enjoy a very classic summer-in-LA experience.
