17Huntington Library
"The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, colloquially known as The Huntington, is a collections-based educational and research institution established by Henry E. Huntington (1850–1927) and located in San Marino, California. In addition to the library, the institution houses an extensive art collection with a focus on 18th and 19th-century European art and 17th to mid-20th-century American art. The property also includes approximately 120 acres of specialized botanical landscaped gardens, most notably the "Japanese Garden", the "Desert Garden", and the "Chinese Garden" (Liu Fang Yuan)."
18The Grove at Farmers Market
"The Grove is a retail and entertainment complex in Los Angeles, California, located on parts of the historical Farmers Market. The Grove features a large central park with an animated fountain designed by WET. Its music-fountain show plays every hour, though the feature has a non-musical program in between shows. The water's choreography is reminiscent of the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas —also designed by WET— but on a much smaller scale. The property also has a statue, The Spirit of Los Angeles. Live shows are often performed there, on the grassy area by the fountains. An internal transit system uses electric-powered trolley cars to link The Grove and the adjacent Farmers Market."
19The Broad
"The Broad is a contemporary art museum on Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. The museum is named for philanthropist Eli Broad, who financed the $140 million building which houses the Broad art collections. The museum offers free general admission to its permanent collection galleries. It opened on September 20, 2015."

20Venice Canal Historic District
"The Venice Canal Historic District is a district in the Venice section of Los Angeles. The district is noteworthy for its man-made canals built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his Venice of America plan. Kinney sought to recreate the appearance and feel of Venice, Italy. The residential district surrounding the remaining canals was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. In recent years, there has been extensive renovation work and many large, modern houses have been built. The water enters the canals through sea gates in the Marina Del Rey breakwater, and again in Washington Blvd. They open at low tide to drain most of the water and at high tide they are closed, trapping the water for about 3 days, before being refreshed again."
