When you join one of our trips, we want you to have peace of mind. In response to COVID-19, we’ve:
Alongside local artists, historians, and a curious cohort of Atlas Obscura and Tastemade travelers, spend three days exploring the hidden histories and subcultures that give Los Angeles its undeniable energy and edge. Wander along mural-lined streets with a resident artist, sip cocktails in an underground speakeasy, and hike into hills that house Deco-era ruins. Along the way, you’ll have some time to take in the natural and human-made beauty of the city—from sweeping hilltop vistas to little-known lighthouses overlooking the ocean.
Accommodations are not included in your trip, but there are wonderful hotels, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, and local lodging options available in Los Angeles. Our guide recommends the LINE hotel in Koreatown. There are also many Airbnb options in West Hollywood, Los Feliz, and Santa Monica.
You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip.
We recommend you arrive in L.A. by 9 a.m. on Day 1. Our trip concludes after dinner on Day 3, and you can continue on to your next adventure that evening or the following morning.
Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to five miles over the course of each day, spending time in nature, remaining on their feet for long periods of time, and sometimes walking on uneven terrain.
Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, though in most cases ingredients can't be substituted or omitted from particular dishes. If you have a severe allergy, please contact us to find out if this is the right trip for you.
We’ll be supporting local artisans as well as businesses with sustainable practices at each step of the way. We’ll also be focusing on highlighting underrepresented voices in the L.A. art scene, spotlighting their experiences and contributions to the city.
