Los Angeles travel tips

1) Ride a vintage Los Angeles cable car

The local cable car has existed since 1901. Two nice little carriages run from Grand Central Market up to California Plaza. Ride it to see the city and make a couple of Instagram-ready shots. A ticket costs $1 for one trip, $2 for a round trip.

2) Check whether you’re lucky to join Dine LA, the top restaurants’ festival in Los Angeles

Twice a year, in January and July, Los Angeles hosts two weeks of Dine LA, when the city's top restaurants prepare a special menu consisting of the best dishes and put a fixed price on it. Lunch usually costs $25-29, and dinner $40-50. Check the dates for the next two weeks to experience fine dining at low prices.
