I love it that people are starting to think of creative ways to enjoy the new Expo Line. Discover LA took a ride and came up with stuff to do all along Expo … even in Culver City, which won’t open until this summer. But not a bad idea to plan ahead. Check out their thoughts and cool video and send us your ideas, if you feel inspired.

Here’s some overlooked places:
23rd St Station:
Five Guys – Figueroa at 27th (5 min walk)
The only Five Guys that’s convenient to Metro Rail, confidently the best burger in town without spending a heap of money, higher quality than In & Out
LATTC – west of the Metro Rail station (2-5 min walk)
There’s a lot of splendid and avant-garde architecture to gaze upon that largely goes unnoticed .
Harold & Belle’s Restaurant – Jefferson at 10th Ave (10 min walk)
One of the best soul food joints in Los Angeles
Crenshaw Baldwin Hills Plaza Mall and Rave 15 Theater – Crenshaw at MLK Blvd (15 min walk)
Newly and beautifully renovated mall with a brand new movie theater with promenade with $6 movie Wednesdays any movie, even in IMAX and 3D.
JR’s BBQ – LaCienega at Fairfax (5 min walk)
Being from Memphis, this is the best barbecue joint I’ve found in my adventures in Los Angeles. People comes from miles around and now there’s a rapid transit option.
Mandrake Bar – LaCienega between Washington and Venice Blvd (15 min walk)
One of my favorite artsy dive bars with under 35 year olds, live DJs and projected imagery on the back wall.
Culver City Art District – LaCienega at Washington (15 min walk)
There’s only the annual Culver City Art Walk but what’s more is the district has one or two monthly with many, all, or just one participating and the streets are full of after dark pedestrian activity.
Target – LaCienega at Rodeo Rd (5-7 min walk)
Most convienent Target in central Los Angeles to a Metro Rail station for all of your big box needs and wants
These are definitely some great places to check out along the line.
