The Angel's Flight Railway is a really cool, cheap, historic experience near Grand Central Market. Make sure to read all of the historic markers in the area before or after your ride it will help you appreciate the ride.

Visited for the ride this week just to say we did it while walking back to hotel from Grand Central Market. Ride takes couple of mins max but the information at the top makes it quite interesting. Ride is $1.

Some say it's the shortest train ride in the world. What it is is a cute way to go up a very steep hill. There are museums, restaurants and other sights on top and at the bottom. Nice view as the train is going. Kids...More

Angel's Flight has a long and interesting history. It has moved from its original location, been forgotten for a long time, and started again in fits and starts. Hopefully that is all behind it now and is set for a long short run. The railway...More

I am going to go ahead and set some expectations for you. This is a tiny little train that takes you up a very short, very steep hill. You can get on at the bottom, and then pay your $1 when you get to the...More

This has to be one of the shortest "railways" in the US, if not the world. Very quaint rail car originally constructed to serve the residents of downtown L.A,, especially the Bunker Hill area. The attraction takes you up Bunker Hill (California Plaza, South Grand...More

Take a ride on a historic part of Los Angeles. Family friendly and inexpensive, directly across the street from Grand Central Market. Unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

Take the easy route up the hill for US$1 or 50 cents if you have a tap card, step aboard at the bottom and pay at the top.

Easy transport from Grand Central Market to up hill locations such as the Broad and Museum of Contemporary Art and anything northwest of Olive Street. The fare was reasonable at .50 cents each way with a same day Metrolink ticket. Clean and efficient transport.

It's not long, and yes, you could walk but just take the tram! It is a very fun way to go up and down the hill. And the history is very interesting!

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

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
