I was on my way up to Hollywood and decided to stop here for a little bit and look around the area after hearing so much about it. There are so many Victorian homes in the area in varying degrees of condition (some are beautifully maintained, others need a bit of TLC) and it has a fascinating history as one of the oldest suburbs in LA!

Some individual houses have gained their own notoriety by being used in popular films and television series over the years, which makes sense given the neighborhood’s proximity to Hollywood. One house for example was used in the “Charmed” series while another one just down the street was used in Michael Jackson’s iconic music video for “Thriller.”

It was a pretty short trip and I walked around for about a half hour but it is definitely worth a visit if you’re into Victorian architecture! Just try to be respectful of the residents living here since it still is an actual neighborhood.

The LA Conservancy's monthly walking tour in and about these homes was incredibly informational and connected us to the community and individuals living in these historic homes. It was the perfect length of time for a reasonable price with a wonderful guide.

The Angelino Heights Historic Area is close to downtown LA and not far from Echo Park. It is just a few blocks some beautiful and colorful houses from a very romantic era of architecture and style. The streets are a pleasure to walk through and especially on Carroll Street, you will find house after house of fashionable architecture and craftsmanship. They just don't build them like this anymore.

I don't think you would spend more than maybe 20 minutes in this neighborhood but the houses are absolutely beautiful! Like in old movies! I'm thinking Anne of Green Gables and such, beautiful Victorian houses! I absolutely recommend this area!

When one walks through this area, it is hard to believe you are smack dab in the middle of twenty-first century Los Angeles...one feels he has been transported back 100 years to a small town. The homes in this area are old and are kept up really well...the streets are clean and the gardens are well manicured. There are only about six blocks worth walking along...one does not need to spend much time here to appreciate the area. Parking is available on the street.

Angelino Heights was the first really fashionable area of the Los Angelos before Hancock Park and Beverly Hills. This small historical area is off the map unless you know the history of the city and is now part of the up and coming Echo Park district that is the new hipster area. The homes are really a treat and are Victorian with a California twist to them. The whole neighborhood is in transition right now and spend your time driving through the winding roads above downtown and really look at the neighborhood set up. It is a treat to history buffs.

I don't really have much to say about this experience except "eh". I had heard a lot of great things but I was very underwhelmed by the whole thing.

I read Charles Fleming's "Secret Stairs" in LA and decided to visit Angelino Heights. The 2.5 miles walk starts from Echo Park Lake and continues to Angelino Heights (about 2 hours). I also checked out the LA Conservancy website for additional information prior to the walk. Both sources provide general information about the neighborhood which helps a lot. It was a perfect time to visit as the weather wasn't too hot, and the lotuses at Echo Park Lake are blooming.

We took the Angelino Heights walking to with the Los Angeles Conservancy. The tour is offered the first Saturday and reservations are required.

Google the Los Angeles Conservancy for information about the tour.

I have driven Carroll Street and Angelino Heights a number of times.This time I parked the car and walked the neighborhood. A treat was being invited into several of the homes and seeing the restoration efforts of the homeowners.

Take the L.A. conservancy tour if you enjoy home restoration and the preservation of Los Angeles heritage,

If you've seen San Francisco, these three streets will seem very little compared to the thousands of Victorian gems you can admire there. But having a little stroll down this quiet neighborhood is a treat. Please park your car and walk. It drove me nuts to see all these tourists slowing down in front of the best looking houses. The whole "tour" can be wrapped in 30 min max. So please get out and walk!
Some of the houses are in beautiful shape others need a million dollar renovation. And that is the beauty of this visit : you walk around, you pick the house you could see yourself living into, you see one that looks very bit up and you think: what a great set for a horror movie! And then, you try to imagine the old old lady who owns it and all these nasty real estate sharks waiting for her to finally die. Anyway, in order to enjoy this, you need to be into architecture, history and be a curious mind.
Push the walk further about 15 min and check out the Echo Park lake down the hill. They did a great job renovating it. It is a very pleasant place to have a picnic, read a book in the shade, chat your ears off with a friend you have not seen for a while. If you do both in one day you'll tell yourself: "Los Angeles is a pedestrian friendly town, and this area is adorable."
Well don't get carried away here! 15 years ago this was "a no go zone" but it is true that you can walk and walk around Echo Park and feel safe and happy.
