Los Angeles has a fascinating architectual history and even long-time Angelinos have enjoyed and learned something new on The Los Angeles Conservancy tours. The most popular tour is the Historic Core Walking tour, which is offered every Saturday and takes two and a half hours. Starting at Pershing Square, the tour stops by the Biltmore Hotel, the Pacific Mutual Building, the Subway Terminal Building, Grand Central Market, and much more, before ending at with a visit to the interior of the Bradbury Building, the landmark made famous by Blade Runner.
