About Us


L.A. Electric Travel is the home-grown brainchild of two traveling Angelenos. We are one of the few sites that connects art, culture, and really good food with an easy, green mode of transportation- the metro rail. Our goal is to plug you into the best of the Los Angeles area and in doing so, we hope to subvert a few prevailing myths about the city we love. 1) Los Angeles is a must-have-a car-city. 2) No-one walks or rides in LA.


We personally visit all the attractions recommended on this website. We do not accept payment or freebies in exchange for a positive review/listing.
