5 things loved by locals in Los Angeles

1) Angels Flight

This is the little funicular that could! The shortest railway in the world, this 116-year-old funicular takes passengers up and down Bunker Hill between Hill and Olive Streets. Originally opened in 1901, the two iconic orange cars closed in 2013 due to an accident, but thankfully the historic railway reopened in the fall of 2017.
