LOS ANGELES, CA. We knew we had made the right choice for our hotel stay when shortly after we checked in we discovered Tom’s park from the film (500) Days of Summer. It was such an unexpected discovery that we had to check it out before we left. The name of the park is Angels Knoll and if you’ve ever seen the film, the bench is right were you’d expect it to be.
What’s pretty cool is that there’s a plaque on the exact bench that they filmed at indicating that this was in fact the spot:
For movie geeks such as ourselves, stumbling upon the location from one of our favorite films definitely was a happy accident that make our vacation to LA that much more fun.
Also around our hotel in the downtown area were recognizable locations from Inception (the train scene through the street) and other notable landmarks such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Los Angeles Times Building, and the Los Angeles City Hall.
