Downtown Los Angeles is made up of 13 districts within the most historic part of LA. Experience the city’s living history in the Historic Core which includes the Old Spring Street Financial District and the Broadway Theater District with 12 theater buildings in seven blocks. Bunker Hill and the Financial District are the hub of downtown and make up the famous LA skyline of skyscrapers, offices, banks, hotels and shopping centers. Bunker Hill is brimming with character and offers a wonderful lifestyle for those fortunate to live in this area of music and arts centers. The landmark Bunker Hill Steps were modeled on Rome’s Spanish Steps and lead down to the Public Library. Further north is the Civic Center of LA; the largest concentration of government officials outside Washington D.C. and home to several theaters and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. El Pueblo is where Los Angeles was founded in 1781. Exploring Olvera Street, the central plaza and 27 historic buildings in this area on a walking tour is a must for history lovers.
