    I have to say, these really are hidden gems because I haven’t heard or read about them on posts but they seem like such exciting places! I’d love to check out the sunken city or hike to find the bridge to nowhere! The underground tunnels sound pretty exciting as well and the Mosaic Tile House is so quirky and unique, reminds me a little of Barcelona’s houses made by Gaudi.

    Wow, there sure are a lot of hidden gems in LA. There’s more about this city. I’m not a city person so I’m glad to know that there are caves for an adventurer like me!

    It’s an interesting post of hidden gems of Los Angeles. When I travel I always look for off the beaten path and would surely need this post when heading to this city. My favorite is always street arts.

      street art is quite interesting and you will find a lot of it in LA. Since you’re a fan of street art, I think you’ll like it a lot 🙂

    Right on, I’ve yet to make it to LA, but I’ll bookmark this bad boy in case I’m there anytime soon!

    Wow, you just introduced me to so many unique sights to see in LA that I wasn’t even aware, despite having visited LA quite a few times. I’d love to hike to the Bridge to Nowhere – it’s good to know that the best way to get there is by car. The Mosaic Tile House looks absolutely beautiful and lovingly decorated by Pann and Duran. And I’m definitely adding a stroll along the Mural Mile on our list as it seems like a great way to become more familiar with the culture of LA. Thanks for sharing this detailed post.

    Truly, these places are hidden beauty of Los Angeles. I haven’t been to any of these places as I haven’t been to Los Angeles yet, and with this list, I should go here. One of the best places that I would love to see and experience here is a hike to the Bridge to Nowhere. I personally find it interesting and amazing! Perhaps because I love hiking very much. Thank you so much for sharing this one.

    I live in the area and haven’t heard of many of these! I’m going to have to take my daughter to Mural Mile, she’s recently become obsessed with murals and would love this. I love that you featured the non traditional places of LA, just goes to show you there are so many hidden gems even in the largest cities.

    After living in LA for almost a decade, I must say that I love this list! I’ve been to many, but not all, of these places you suggested. My favorite is the Bridge to Nowhere. I actually bungee jumped off the bridge 7 years ago. It was incredible! The hike itself was beautiful and an adventure too.

    Good to see all hidden gems in LA apart from other famous attractions as they are always interesting. I never knew about Sunken city but it looks interesting. Also the Mural Mile is a must stop for me as I love street art. Good you tipped to not miss Boxed Canyons as it is really very photogenic and I can relate it with the rocks of Oman.

    Los Angeles has got really some weird things to do! Mosaic Tile House and Eco Park Time Travel Mart are the most interesting secrets. Especial the Travel Mart, the idea behind that is very good because the creativity is honored.

    So many cool ideas. It’d be kind of eerie to stumble upon the bridge to nowhere, but pretty cool too. Does anyone conduct tours of the underground tunnels? It seems like it has a really interesting history.

      Hi Jen, yes a lot of local companies organize these tours.

    I lived in LA for more than a year and I’ve never heard of any of these! Although many people say that LA lacks culture there is a lot of interesting art and museums. I had no idea there were so many niche museums like the Neon museum or a Jurassic Technology museum. However, the coolest thing on this list to me is the Masque. So many important places of punk rock’s beginnings are now closed, such as CBGBs, so it is awesome that you can still visit the Masque!

      Wow, that’s strange to hear but at the same time great to hear because it shows these places are truly hidden and not known even by locals 🙂 Thank you for your comment.

    I’ve never heard LA described as an introvert before! I love the city though, I think I’m one of the few. And I love it for the big cheesy tourist sites, that’s what you’ve got to embrace in a place like LA. I love places like Bronson Cave where you can feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere so close to the city.

      That makes two of us, Paul. And when I say introverted I mean it takes time to open up before showing its best things to you (the visitor). When I say best things, I refer to hidden gems like the ones in this article and not the typical touristy places most people visit 🙂
