But for those who appreciate the finer, and affordable, things in life, Los Angeles is full of awe-inspiring architecture, beautiful murals, hip art walks, galleries, and tonnes more. The beauty about the city is that it’s accessible; you may walk, cycle, drive, take the train or hop on a bus from Coach Bus Los Angeles. Here are some easy and affordable arts and culture activities you can get up to:
People from all over the world visit Los Angeles to admire the city's stunning architecture.

Pei, Renzo Piano, and many more, all of which you can enjoy from the charter bus that you get from Coach Bus Los Angeles.
Movies, culture, myth and architecture all appear in murals found all around LA Metro’s Purple Line, which runs from Union Station to Wilshire and Western. Take some time to explore and see how public art in LA adds another dimension to the city’s art scene.
