Lace up those tennies and grab that trusty iPod! Our good friends over at Metro and LADOT in conjunction with the Confederation of Downtown Assoc. are now offering free podcast tours of downtown L.A. through the program Downtown LA Walks.

Downtown LA Walks describes itself as an urban “way-finder”, and was designed to help people navigate their way around via new signage noting landmarks, and historical facts.

The fun and informative podcasts offer several tours; Art & Culture, Shopping, Historic and also an International tour which explores the areas international highlights. Each tour also comes with a downloadable map.
