Hollywood Forever's charms are somewhat hidden. Drive by and you might barely notice it, unless you're trying to make your way past the line of cars snaking out onto Santa Monica Boulevard some Saturday night. (More on that later.) Tucked off of a busy stretch a few blocks east of Vine Street, it's easily accessible by bus. Visitors can tour the grounds for free from Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Le guide du zoo et des jardins botaniques de Los Angeles


Gregory de Silva

Cette année, le zoo et les jardins botaniques de Los Angeles fêtent leurs 50 ans. L’attraction du Griffith Park est l’une des destinations les plus populaires de la ville, attirant près de deux millions de visiteurs chaque année et pour de bonnes raisons. C’est le domicile de plus de 1000 animaux représentant près de 250 espèces, dont nombres d’entre elles sont rares ou en danger. Peu importe quel est votre animal préféré, les suricates ou les mandrills, les varans de Komodo ou les kangourous, il y a de fortes chances que vous puissiez les voir. Les jours frais et couverts offrent de meilleures opportunités d’observation. Et les après-midis chauds d’été, il y a des tonnes de choses à voir et à faire. Le zoo de L.A. est ouvert de 10h00 à 17h00 tous les jours de l’année, sauf le jour de Noël.
