This was one of the first things on our list of things to do in Los Angeles. Easy to get to just around corner from 7th & Metro Center. If you have rail pass you can get price halved only 50 cents each way instead...More

I saw this in one of the episodes from Bosch on Netflix's and wondered where it was located in Los Angeles. It was neat and unusual for L.A. experience but the ride is very short and you really do not see much by going to...More

This great little railway saves the steep walk up the hill. It only costs 50cents each way with a Metro Card and is good fun

I have long wanted to ride on Angeles Flight RR but it was either closed or under repair. During one of our Friday night visits to the Broad and Grand Central Market we noticed the flight was open! It's the best dollar you'll ever spend...More

What a super cool thing to do for a buck, 2 bucks round trip. If you have a Metro card, it's half of that. Would I brave driving to downtown Los Angeles just for this? No way! But since we were going to Grand Central...More

I attended the Grand Performances and finally had a chance to take the Angel's Flight. It was quite fun but a bit too quick. For 50 cents w/a TAP card; otherwise a $1.00, it's worth it for a short joy ride or for those who...More

This is the shortest railroad in the world. It’s a steep incline that takes about 2 minuets to ride up. Cost is a dollar each way. It has a long history that is fun to read about. We found close by parking at a meter....More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

Check for Park & Ride lots at the Metro Stations nearest your location. Park there and take the train downtown! Angel's Flight is very short walk from the Civic Ctr stop on the Red line. Be aware of the... More

There are plans to re-open, and technically the trains are said to be in working condition. There is, however, a lot of red-tape and insurance issues to cover so it is still doubtful. There is no official date for... More
