Metro Art Tours: L.A.'s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has seamlessly incorporated art into people's everyday commute. The Metro has commissioned more than 250 artists since 1989 to create art for rail and bus travel. Free tours of these works, found on streetscapes, bus interiors, and stations, are available the first Saturday and Sunday of every month. Each two-hour tour is led by a trained Metro Docent Council volunteer, who provides insight into the art and artists featured within the transit system.
L.A. Flower District: Come smell the azaleas, lilies, tulips, and orchids at the largest flower district in the U.S. Floral designers, growers, and wholesalers bring nearly every type of flower and potted plant to the market, making "America's Flower Garden" grow. The public is welcome to walk among the daisies on weekdays for $2, and for $1 on Saturdays. Photo opportunities abound, with a rainbow of colors and exotic varieties, so don't forget your camera.
Engine Co. No. 28: By combining a historic-cultural landmark and comfort food at its best, Engine Co. No. 28 has achieved a four-alarm success. The once-active firehouse built in 1912 now serves classic American fare, inspired by many of the dishes firemen crave during duty, including meatloaf, chicken fried steak, and apple pie. Most items cost under $20 such as the turkey burger for $12.50.
