It seems especially fitting to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos on Olvera Street. After all, the thoroughfare is part of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, the oldest part of Los Angeles, and the city center when it was under Mexican rule in the 19th century. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 29-30, there will be folklorico dancers and puppet shows. A procession will take place both evenings beginning at 7 p.m. Can’t get there over the weekend? The colorful altars will be on display through Wednesday, Nov. 2.
Los Angeles is a great city for outdoor enthusiasts. Why not get the whole family outside this season? It’s hard for kids (not to mention mom and dad) to be attached to their screens if they are fishing for trout, climbing a mountain, or riding a horse. We’ve compiled a list of ten activities sure to deliver fresh air and quality family time.
Discover Los Angeles
Guests embark on a self-guided stroll along a trail through lush landscaping similar to the earliest known trees and plants from the time dinosaurs roamed the earth, including ferns, cycads, conifers and ginkgos. Your face-to-face dinosaur encounters begin with a fierce Suchomimus, followed by a massive Brachiosaurus, whose 18-foot-long neck required a gigantic heart to pump blood up to the top.
Next, guests encounter two Coelophysis dinosaurs; a Citipati, which used its feathers to protect and warm its eggs, just like modern-day birds; and a Carnotaurus, a bipedal carnivore covered in small scales and bony lumps.
