Cheap this Sat: Walking Tour of NoHo

The San Fernando Valley is huge. Having said that, I've always wondered why everything happening around town was always in WeHo, Culver or Downtown. I've gone on a walking tour of the Historic Core at the LA Conservancy, but I keep thinking something must have happened near my neck of the woods too!

After a bit of digging, I came across The North Hollywood Walking Tour by the neophyte Museum of San Fernando Valley. Beginning at the corner of Magnolia Blvd. and Tujunga St. at the statue of Amelia Earhart, the tour goes through many stops that I've probably walked through but never appreciated.

The museum promises more details about the Valley's "real cowboys, pioneer families, movie television and recording stars," not to mention "the Spanish conquest, Mexican ranchos, great steam trains, vast ranches and orchards, land barons, and wars."

The walking tours are directed by Richard Hilton, Chair, Events for The Museum, board member and who is also a long time docent of the Los Angeles Conservancy.
