The Arts District is a trendy/industrial neighborhood, full of galleries, murals, street art, history, tech-industry, film shoots, nightlife, shopping, and LA’s best restaurants. But why is it here? Surrounded by warehouses, and nestled next to the concrete bound LA River, our Los Angeles Arts District bike tour will explain how this neighborhood became a magnet for international street artists, as well as local crews and graffiti writers. We visit Hauser and Wirth Gallery, Sci-Arc, Bloom’s Square, Warner Brother’s Music, Art Share LA, The American Hotel, The Container Yard, and many more surprise locations. We narrate origin stories, artists’ backgrounds, new development and current status of the Arts District. Your Arts District bike tour will visit the highlight murals you’ll recognize from everyone’s Insta, and roll through secret alleys ruled by lesser known artists as well. This tour breaks at Hauser & Wirth, and is perfect for those looking to bike tour off the beaten path and snap some unique photos in this post-industrial Los Angeles neighborhood. We are the only tour company that provides a Los Angeles Arts District bike tour, we invented it!
