Though not as scenic as neighboring Los Feliz or Silverlake, East Hollywood claims two ethnic areas, Thai Town and Little Armenia. You won't go hungry here, with some of the best Thai food and Armenian pastries to be found in Los Angeles. Palm's Thai is a local favorite where authentic Thai is paired with a live Elvis impersonator (yes, he's Thai). Barnsdall Art Park sits atop a hill off of Hollywood Boulevard and features a Frank Lloyd Wright home, an art gallery, and a manicured lawn great for picnicking.
Getting Around Los Angeles
The best way to get around Los Angeles is by car. There is an excellent public transportation system available as an alternative, but generally L.A. is best covered by car. No one walks in L.A., except on the beach.
