Art Deco Walking Tour
Art Deco Walking Tour
NOTE: If Pershing Square is closed tours will congregate at the southwest corner of the park, at the corner of 6th Street and Olive Street.
Everyone knows that L.A. is a glamorous city. But few know that true Old Hollywood glamour lies in the streets of downtown L.A.!
Nothing evokes Jazz Age elegance like Art Deco. Its clean lines and geometric patterns proved a perfect style for L.A. in the ‘20s and ‘30s, and an extraordinary collection of these masterpieces still stands in the heart of the city.
On this tour, you’ll marvel at the incredible detail of these structures, with their brilliant colors and lush materials. You’ll learn how Art Deco made its way to L.A., and why it became such a defining architectural style in the city.
Take a stroll with us through the jazziest part of town—register now!
