If you have visitors- or you are visiting
why don’t you: Los Angeles-
Go to the Ennis-Brown house in the Hollywood Hills.
You probably know this Frank Lloyd Wright house, located at
2607 Glendower Ave.
from the movies (most notably Blade Runner). Built in 1924, it resembles a Mayan temple. It used to be open for tours, but has been closed since the 1994 earthquake. Billionaire Ron Burkle just bought the house in July 2011.
Go to Philippe’s for a cup of coffee.
Philippe’s, a downtown institution since 1908, last raised the price of a cup of coffee in 1977. It used to be 5¢; now it’s 9¢. (Sorry, no refills.) Take that, Starbucks!
Swing on out to Tarzana.
Tarzana is named after the ranch purchased in 1915 by Edgar Rice Burroughs- who wrote Tarzan.
. Watts Towers
Everyone who is an Angeleno should see this work of art. And even if you’re just visiting, you should see it too. Built over a period of 30 years, with found materials, it is like nothing else you’ll see in LA.
