DTLA – Downtown Los Angeles has experienced monumental growth over the past decade, and one of the world’s leading travel magazines has taken note. Fodor’s Travel has placed the Central City on its list of 52 places to visit in 2019. Dubbed the Go List, the write-up highlights Downtown’s “fashionable hotels, trendy restaurants, Volstead-themed bars and expensive boutiques.” Fodor’s Travel has steered globetrotters toward exciting destinations for more than 80 years. The list was revealed on Nov. 14, and specifically mentions newcomers including the NoMad and Freehand hotels, and cites the beauty of the architecture in the Historic Core. The description is not all sunny, however, as Fodor’s also cites the “calamity of Skid Row that spills out beyond its boundaries.” This is not the first time that Downtown has been lauded as a place to explore. The New York Times placed Downtown on its “52 Places to Go in 2014” list, highlighting its vibrant food scene, including Grand Central Market.
