Šta ćete raditi

Highland Park has long been a haven for artists and musicians (it was the childhood home of Jackson Browne and where Billie Eilish was born and raised) and along with it comes a lot of amazing galleries, shops, bars, food trucks and restaurants. In 2018 it was listed as the 9th coolest neighborhood in the world per TimeOut Magazine.

We'll meet in front of a coffee shop (also the location of a scene from the movie Reservoir Dogs) in the heart of the action on York. We'll make our way along York to get a sense of hustle and bustle behind this thriving community with a chance along the way to get a quick bite to eat at one of Jonathan Gold's top picks for LA or get a bottle of pop from an iconic soda specialty shop with 100's of selections. We'll then head over Figueroa to explore the other main drag of the neighborhood.

On Figueroa, we'll check out the oldest bowling alley in Los Angeles (fully restored to all of it's 1920s glamor), learn about the history of the Highland Theatre, a former Vaudeville house, which also opened in the 20's as well as the music venues and record labels which call this part of Highland Park home.
Other things to note
don't forget sunscreen and there will be options along the way to choose where we make stops (and no pressure to go to the hidden bar at the end of the experience or to drink there if you do)

I'm incredibly passionate when it comes to talking about history (I minored in it in college) and love sharing my favorite hotspots and the history of my neighborhood which is one of the oldest in LA, Highland Park. Nothing gives me more pleasure than getting new people a chance to learn about what makes this area so unique and special. I've done a lot of public speaking in various jobs in the arts and love to be a tour guide when friends and family are in town.

Gdje ćete biti

We'll be walking along the two main corridors of the area, York and Figueroa with a chance to stop at several iconic spots along the way. From our meet up spot where an iconic scene from Reservoir Dogs was filmed, to a landmark soda pop stop to the oldest (and coolest) bowling alley in LA, we'll get a chance to get immersed with the one of the most happening neighborhoods in the US.

Very authentic, personal tour of Highland Park. As someone who has visited LA many times, I never knew Highland Park had so much history behind it and I am glad I booked this experience!

Mike was terrific when it came to it really. He had such rare insight and perspective on the area him being originally from the east coast. this experience felt like no other especially he only charges a small fee for the experience he deserves more personally buy him a donut and become his friend he’s a donut connoisseur. I felt so alive halfway in the tour like at that point I knew the trip paid for it self and more. I bought some things along the way he recommended me some Korean strawberry milk it was delicious and you got to try the vegan Mac and cheese truck so good. I left feeling wiser and accomplished thank you Mike for this experience. Awesome 5 stars on everything

I did this Experience a few hours after flying in from Amsterdam, and so glad I did (a perfect jet lag cure)! The places we visited were incredibly interesting and uber local, hip, historic & quirky - from a marrionette puppet theatre, to bowling alleys and soda pop shops from the 1920s, not to mention 'Chicken Boy'. Meeting DJ Shadow a sale of his records was a cool surprise too! Mike's passion for the Highland Park area, knowledge of it's history, the people and the most happening places was first rate. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed being shown around a new area in LA by someone who knew and cared a lot about the area. It was hot, but we paused regularly to get cool, and I had huaraches for the first, but hopefully not the last, time.

It really was like having a friend show us around his special neighborhood. Places you wouldn’t necessarily know even if you lived nearby. Mike was fun, super knowledgeable, generous with his time and information. The pace was relaxed and totally customized to the participants. Makes us want to go back to try so many of the places we checked out on the walking tour! This was a bargain and well worth the time & money! No way we could’ve seen so much on our own in the same amount of time. Plus Mike sent us a an excellent recap of the places we visited plus a few more he recommended after the tour.

I absolutely recommend this experience. Mike knows this neighborhood like the back of his hand, and customized the tour specifically to suit my interests. He was punctual, polite, and kind, but went way beyond basic good manners, and shared his insights and tips like every traveler hopes a local person will. Five stars!
