Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles

Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles As we wrap up the summer season at The Hollywood Bowl, the L.A. Philharmonic flies south (about 17 minutes) to their winter home at The Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles. This is an amazing venue, and certainly one of the most photographed structures for visitors coming to L.A. This Frank Ghery designed building must be seen in person and on foot. We recommend walking around the entire building to fully understand the dimensions and architecture. Opened about this same time back in 2003, it’s become an incredibly iconic building, not only in DTLA (Downtown L.A.) but all of Southern California. The LA Phil, with Gustavo Dudamel as their Music

Arrive Hotel Palm Springs

ARRIVE HOTEL PALM SPRINGS We always say that Los Angeles is the perfectly centered city. About 2 hours in any direction we’ve got fantastic destinations. One can head west out of San Pedro, and hit Catalina Island by ferry, head north and visit Santa Barbara, go south and spend a day in San Diego, or head east and chill out in Palm Springs. Because of its convenience, Palm Springs is a favorite of Angelenos (natives of Los Angeles) and why so many celebrities over the last 70 decades have made it their home. Think New Yorkers and the Hamptons, or San Francisco with Napa Valley. The guides of Glitterati Tours L.A. recently spent our end-of-summer get-away in the desert and
