LA City Hall

You guys, I’m going to let you in on a downtown Los Angeles secret. LA City Hall has a totally free observation deck, and its got the best views of downtown I’ve ever seen. I grew up going to Griffith Observatory, which I do love, but the views from City Hall were spectacular! If you’re scared of heights, prepare yourself, because there’s nothing beyond a railing to keep you from a 27 floor drop. But hey, if I can do it so can you. Just make sure you don’t drop your phone!

I mean hello, this view? Heart eyes. The rest of the building is super stunning as well. When you first walk in (you will have to go through a metal detector), there’s a check-in area that will tell you exactly which elevator to take and what floor to get off on. Make sure you go on a day the building is open, which is currently 8 am-5pm, Monday-Friday. LA City Hall is a working building after all!

The main room of the lobby is pretty stunning too- a domed ceiling, murals, and this gorgeous gold inlay on the floor:

    It’s so terrible, but I’ve never been to LA before! I really need to get there and I will definitely be heading up to the viewing point at Town Hall when I do! Thanks Megan!
