Until this past August I didn't know the train even moved. I thought it just sat there. It was great to see though.

Take the funicular up to bunker hill and save your knees. The train has been reopened with new cars. The kids will love the ride.

You can look up the history of this great little railroad but to truly enjoy it, you have to stop by and take a ride on the shortest railroad in the world. Angels Flight has a long history, stop by for some great photos.

You have to try this. A little rail car with the most interesting refinished seating. For $1 you can ride the car up the many flights of stairs from the Grand Street Market to the business district. Loved, loved, loved it.

In spite of his very short touristy ride, it is still worth it, not only because it's just $2 roundtrip with souvenir ticket (or $1 oneway), but also it's a historic ride itself. The skyscrapers on top of the ride is a sight to behold...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

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
