LOS ANGELES | Griffith Observatory opened in 1935 and the iconic building is a Los Angeles icon, familiar to may non-locals due to the fact that it’s appeared in movies (Rebel Without A Cause, The Terminator), video games (GTA V), film clips and TV shows.

Since opening, The Griffith Observatory has striven to achieve its mission “to make astronomy accessible by the public” and has done this via numerous permanent and temporary space and science-related exhibits. There’s the Foucault pendulum, which demonstrates the rotation of the earth, the Hall of the Sky and Hall of the Eye, which focus on humans’ relationship to the stars, and the Zeiss refracting telescope, which is the most looked-through telescope in the world.

Numerous other exhibits and attractions provide ample opportunities to learn and discover – you could spend several hours here if you wanted.

Even if you’re not interested in the exhibits, the building itself is stunning and the view across Los Angeles, breathtaking.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
