  • I think this is one of the shortest train tracks, but interesting because of the history and the steep angle. Only pays 1 dollar to go up, and if you want a souvenir, there’s a souvenir ticket also. You can ride one way up, and then take the stairs down. It’s very near to Grand Central Market too.
  • This is a super fun ride up Bunker Hill that you just should do for the sake of doing it. Trust me. It's fun. It's quick. If you have to wait in line, you'll wait longer than the ride lasts but it doesn't matter. Why? Because it's super fun. We noticed there's a minimal fee to ride up, but the day we hopped on it was free. So there's that. And this is totally unique and totally an LA landmark that should be experienced!
