After four days at Disneyland and a day and a half in San Diego, we boarded Amtrak and headed north to Los Angeles. For the next two and a half day of our trip to California, we spent touring Los Angeles (Sept. 3rd – 5th). Because we have friends in LA, we were feeling a little more comfortable about the sight seeing. Our friends, Sean and Scott, picked us up at the Union Station train station, and we immediately hit the ground running!
First stop, the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Now when I sent Sean the list of places we would like to visit, many of them had a notation that we only needed a picture of the sight, no touring needed (either too pricey for the tour, or not that interested in a more detailed view). Well this was a surprise! The Walt Disney Concert Hall was open for free tours on the day we were there. Yes, Please! What an amazing architectural and acoustical palace. Both inside and out there are architectural feats that make you say Wow! How did they do that? Here is a slideshow of pictures from the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
From the top levels of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, we had a great view of the Los Angeles area. We could see the Hollywood sign (don’t worry, we will get closer!) and Dodger Stadium. In this picture, in the distance, is Dodger Stadium.
