Silverlake Tour

Sunset Junction TourThe New York Times Los Angeles Travel Guide usually has some well thought-out options. Today’s a is a walking tour of the Sunset Junction area by Silver Lake.

Eat and shop all you want with those recommendations. But, we like to check out history and the neighborhoods and the homes. This Silver Lake website page has a terrific collection of architecturally significant homes with great history.

I like getting the lay of the land using Virtual Earth. For example, this home caught my eye on the Silver Lake site. Check out that same location in the context of the surroundings. What a great backyard!

So pick some shops, a couple of places to eat, pick a few neighborhood homes to hunt for, maybe a few stops from TMD, toss them into Google Earth, or Yahoo Maps, and you’ve got your own DIY Los Angeles Guide!
