If you are looking for a place to catch the sunset with friends after school during the weekdays, Los Angeles City Hall is the place to go. It offers a 360 degree beautiful scenery of all the different neighborhoods like Boyle Heights, Chinatown, & MacArthur Park. The observation deck on the 27th floor at LA City Hall is open to the public on weekdays. Its public entrance to City Hall is on Main Street. In order to enter, you will need to pass through metal detectors and will need a valid I.D. to check-in. Then follow the instructions by the check-in to get to the observation deck.
After visiting, head east of City Hall to Grand Central Market, open from 8 am to 10 pm, where there are varieties of foods and drinks. Foods like pizza, pho, hamburgers, tacos, vegan food, and so much more are available there. Make sure to grab some Mexican candy from La Huerta in stall F-7, where they have a variety of candies, on your way out, or I recommend a delicious cheese burger from Jose Chiquito in stall A-6. It is a great place to spend time with friends.
To end the day, head east of Grand Central Market to The Last Book Store, open from 10 am to 10 pm. The Last Book Store has not only books but dvd’s, vinyls, and art studios on the second floor. There are varieties of books like horror, comedy, poems, comics, cooking, and drawing books. The art studios on the second floor sell many other things other than art like cameras, stickers and gifts. They also have benches around the store to sit and read with big windows to look out at the street.
