The Arts Districtis located downtown west of the LA river. It used to be a place of the homeless and abandoned industrial buildings that most people avoided. In the past years the creative scene moved in, including L.A.'s TV and film industry. It´s nice to just walk around, look at the graffitis and check out the hip coffee shops, yoga studios and stylish galleries. But if you walk around a little further you can actually still get a feeling how it used to be. And meet people that are definitely not working in art or fashion.
