We all prefer to go in our car. Our city follows a car-dominated culture.
But a tour via the red line Los Angeles metro is worth the experience.
On the red line, there are many art installations & you can visit them for free. Some of them are:
1) Union Station
The union station is the hub of interchange that connects with numerous other metro lines & bus lines.
On the right of Almeda street from here, you will find Olvera street that includes various museums like Mexican culture, Chinese American & Italian American.
Also, here is a little Tokyo from the left of the union station where there are Japanese art museums & Japanese shops & restaurants.
2) Civic center metro station.
The specialty of this place is it will let you off in the middle of a three-block expanse of Grand Park with exits toward City Hall at the bottom of the hill and exits toward the Music Center.
The Grand Park has a small botanic garden & grassy areas where you can sit on benches & enjoy the view of a large fountain with a light show.
3) 7th street/ Metro center station.
Metro center station connects with the blue line or Expo line. This place is closest to the shopping & eating points.
Even the blue line will get you closer to the LA fashion district on the way south to Long beach.
