Highly recommend Grand Performances as well. Great entertainment, and free to boot. Bands also perform at Pershing Square during the summer. And yes, yes, yes definately check out the Rotunda at the Central Library. And the plaza at Little Tokyo is kinda fun after dark. We like Oiwake buffet, as well as the little shops.

thanks to everybody

we will adjust our day in DTLA with your comments, i'm sure we will have a lot of fun.

Just a last question, is it possible to go to a roof of a big building (city hall or other) to have an amazing view of LA ?

I've visited the website www.lacity.org but I didn't find any information.

Thank you,
Thomas

I am not sure about City Hall.

There is a rooftop bar at the Standard Hotel (6th & Flower) with a view of the skyline but I am not sure you can go up there with a child (drinking age in the U.S. is 21 & over).

I think the new JW Marriot Hotel has a restaurant on one of its top floors with views of the city/skyline. I don't recall the name of it. And I am sure it's not cheap to eat there. And I the Bonaventure Hotel used to have a revolving restaurant on its top floor with skyline views (but I am not sure if this is still open).

Maybe another poster will have a better idea.

I live downtown. Late 30's caucasian. There is no issue.

Stay west of Main Street, do your sightseeing during the day. Spring and Broadway around 5th gets a bit sketchy, but I walk it every day and no one has ever bothered me.

Bradbury building is gorgeous. You can only go on the first floor as the building houses LAPD internal affairs. But its well worth seeing. So is Union Station and the historic buildings along Spring street.

Enjoy your trip!

I don't need to see Chinatown as we will see the one in SF, maybe Little Tokyo but not sure !

You realize that walk is about 3-4 miles, right?

Thats no piece of cake LOL. I walk from M to B every day and back, but thats a direct line pretty much.

What your doing can be done just fine, but better be in decent shape

Just as a personal thing I would cut out C, D, and E, and just go straight from B to F. That will save you a bunch of walking.

A to B might be a little sketchy, specially round Cesar Chavez. From A, I would go south on Alameda, then right on 1st, that goes right through Little Tokyo which is one of my favorite places in LA
