Guide to Echo Park

Things to Do in Echo Park

View Map

Echo Park has one of the best neighborhood music scenes in LA and it's home to Dodger Stadium in Chavez Ravine. While local and touring bands play in Echo Park at the Echo and Echoplex almost every night of the week, the neighborhood also hosts two major music festivals throughout the year: Echo Park Rising in the summer and Culture Collide in the fall.

As small as the neighborhood is, it contains a vibrant vegan scene restaurants Sage, the all-vegetarian Elf Café, Kind Kreme dairy-free ice cream shop and vegan-friendly Mohawk Bend, all within walking distance of each other and the nearby music venues.

Make a day of it by renting a pedal boat at Echo Park Lake and soaking in this hood's do-good, feel-good vibes.
