  • One of my favorite parts of Los Angeles. On any given night, you can stroll by the lights and see quince├▒era groups, engagement photos being taken, couples, friends, families, artists and onlookers enjoying this bright spot on the Miracle Mile. In addition, the lights create a much needed space so that the entire corridor from the entrance to the Tar Pits to Fairfax isn't dark for joggers, families, and folks getting to and from bus stops. It's bright, it's beautiful and it's been a welcome part of my neighborhood since it went up.
  • Beautiful local attraction that will give you unforgettable photos! Be aware that there will more than likely be lots of people there. The best time to go is evening/night to make sure the lights are on and can be seen. We always go here when we visit LA!
