Explore East Hollywood with local docent Elson Trinidad

WHEN: Saturday July 14, 11am-2pm

WHERE: Vermont/Santa Monica Metro Station at the SW corner of Vermont Ave and Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles 90029

COST: The tour costs $10

How did East Hollywood transform from meadows to farmland to suburb to big city? Find out with as Elson takes participants on a trip through time along the Vermont Avenue corridor. From the Carnegie-built Cahuenga Library to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House, to the birthplaces of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and UCLA, we’ll explore over a century’s worth of history. And of course, a tour of East Hollywood wouldn’t be complete without trying some of its diverse food selections! We’ll also be sampling some Philippine empanadas, El Salvadoran pupusas and East Hollywood’s best ice cream!

This tour will start and end at the street-level plaza of the Vermont/Santa Monica metro station, and it is therefore highly recommended to take public transit. There will be roughly 2 miles of walking, mostly on flat terrain, except for climbing up and down the stairs of the 140-foot high hill in Barnsdall Park.
