Urban hike in downtown Los Angeles

We will be meeting in front of the Starbucks in the Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles.

We will be riding the metro and jumping around a bit so you'll have to buy a $5.00 all day train pass.

The itinerary for this walk is not completely set. It'll remain open to suggestions and places that those attending would like to visit. Somewhere along the way we'll stop and grab a bite to eat, perhaps in Little Tokyo or Grand Central Market.

Some of the places we may visit will include:

-Olvera Street and the Sequeiros Mural

-Grand Central Park

-Bunker Hill

-Walt Disney Concert Hall

-MOCA

-Angels Flight

-Grand Central Market

-Bradbury Building

-Expo Park

-Grauman's Chinese Theater

-Hollywood Walk of Fame

A few other notes:

-Daylight saving time kicks in on March 10th at 2:00am. The clock will jump from 1:59am to 3:00am so we will be losing an hour of time.

-For those driving to the Union Station, street parking is free on Sundays.

-You may want to consider taking the metro instead of driving to the Union Station. http://www.metro.net/riding_metro/maps/images/rail_map.pdf


I will send out my number the day before to those that have RSVPed so you'll be able to contact me if you're running late or happen to miss an exit on the metro.

    What a great event!! Would've liked to join...

    Sorry everyone. I'm running late by 15-30 minutes. The Union Station is a fun place to check though so feel free to walk around the station in the meantime. There's a neat light display that at first glance looks like a simple series of lights but if you look at it just right you can see pictures being formed. The trick is to seein the pictures is to have your eyes follow the lights. Also, Olvera Street is right across the Union Station so feel free to head on over there and I'll catch up with the rest of the group.

    Sorry, change of the plan. Miguel suggested to carpool to Long Beach & take Metro to save us some $$ ($34 less). I'm willing to drive and can have up to 3 people in my car. The only downside to this plan is we'll need to meet & leave Irvine Station by 7:45 am. But it'll give us much more flexible time coming back. Please let me know if anyone is interested in carpooling with us :)

    March 7, 2013

    • Sarah

      Sure! I'm driving to Wardlow & trying to have everyone catch 9:03 am Blue Line.

      March 8, 2013

    • mary

      Ok. I will wait for you and your party @ Wardlow platform. Reminder: In addition to $5. Day Pass, there is also $1. TAP Card fee. Both Day Pass and TAP card can be purchased (think it may be cash only) on train platform. My cell: (562)[masked]

  • Sarah

    Ok, it sounds like we might need another volunteer driver to carpool to LB. We can talk about it when we meet. See you all in the waiting room at Irvine Station at 7:45 am! Don't forget to change the clock ;)

    Hi Sarah please count me in!

  • Joseph c

    Hi Sarah, I'd like to carpool with you to LB

    If i'm reading the metro weekend correct, I would be leaving SanJuan Capistrano at 0846 and arriving union at 1030, The last train back leaves Union Station at 4:40PM. Unless someone car pools.

    I'm planning to take the train too, and would also like to meet at the station in Irvine if possible.

    March 6, 2013

    • Miguel

      Just a note. The $5 dollar all day Metro train pass is only for the Metro Line. The 565 Pacific Surfliner mentioned by Sara costs extra. You may want to look into carpooling with someone to the nearest Metro station, parking there, and then riding the train to Union Station.

      March 6, 2013

  • Joanna H
