Not only is this a fun railroad but very handy. It runs every few minutes, so you don't have to wait long. The hill is steep, so the ride is appreciated! The cars themselves feel like you have stepped back in time. The view from...More

It was a really short ride, but it is a nice experience. It is very cheap, 1$/ride and you can pay with a credit card.

I was walking by this attraction and I wasn't sure if I should get on it. It cost only $1 but I did not have cash on me (at all). I couldn't even ask anyone if I can pay by cash since on the bottom...More

$1 each way. Parking at the bottom was $10. We went to the grand central market first. Nice mall and garden to see once you get to the top after riding the little train.

This is a very short ride, but it is fun. It is a little scary, because it is so steep. But before you know it the ride is over. Definitely a history buff’s must do!

Ok, I love trains...there its out! Would I travel a great distance to ride the Angels Flight? Probably not, but since we were walking back to our hotel from dinner, you bet I would spend my $0.50 each way! Even though there are like at...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

I just park across the street at the grand central market, walk across the street. Then, if so inclined find one of the many places to eat lunch at the grand central market.

I unfortunately don't know. It was completely closed for renovation when I was there.

There are plans to re-open, and technically the trains are said to be in working condition. There is, however, a lot of red-tape and insurance issues to cover so it is still doubtful. There is no official date for... More
