Spend the day in L.A.’s Little Tokyo and Koreatown

The cool thing about Los Angeles is that it is an amazingly diverse city full of culture and unique experiences. When most people travel to L.A. for the first time, they are likely thinking about the beach, Hollywood, Beverley Hills, etc. Those are certainly great things to go and see and those areas alone have so much to do in them, but I wanted to talk about two of my favorite areas of L.A. for a moment: Little Tokyo and Korea Town.

Art.Travel.Eat.Repeat’s Guide to Seattle
