The most central location in Los Angeles, Mid-Wilshire includes Los Angeles County Museum of Art at the heart of the Miracle Mile, Koreatown, Hancock Park, and what some locals call "Beverly Hills Adjacent." Throughout these neighborhoods, magnificent art deco apartment buildings and homes can be found. Oddly, the area has an abundance of tar bubbling from the ground, most famously at the La Brea Tar Pits. Fossils are excavated here daily, making it a must-see attraction for kids. A few blocks away is The Grove, a large outdoor mall with an adjacent farmers market that is a historical site and a must for foodies.
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.
