NocTOURnals

Want more walking with perhaps a little more obvious entertainment? Never one to hate on a pun, NocTOURnals, the downtown walking tour along Grand Avenue, starts this Saturday (July 22) and continues on July 29, August 5, and August 12. They say it’s “the perfect chance to explore the architecture and culture of Downtown LA” – just don’t go on 4th and Los Angeles Street. Apparently parking is being made easy (their site has details and so does the image in this post) and there’s a lot of free or inexpensive activities:
