Did you know you can get a cool perspective of Downtown Los Angeles from an elevated walkway? Yep, you can and all the pics in this post were taken from different spots on the walkway. I didn’t edit any of the pics as I wanted you to see what I saw (I do that often, have you noticed?). I was there around 3pm on a weekday and there were a few people walking around. Every time I drive by I don’t see anyone walking around so it seems to be a space that isn’t used often and a cool place to people watch (or car watch).
So how do you get up here? Easy. There is a staircase on the northeast corner of Figueroa and 3rd (see it below?). Just climb the staircase and you’re on the walkway!
It’s a wide path and a different way to see a few blocks of Downtown Los Angeles. You can take a couple of different routes while you’re walking. You can cross over Figueroa which takes you to another set of condos and restaurants, or go through a pretty large area with a fountain and huge potted plants.
Downtown is always so crowded and this is a great way to be in the city without having to be around a bunch of people. Sometimes you just want to chill but still want to see a bit of the action. You can do that from here!
