Unten sieht man den Eingang vom Stadium/Elysian Park. Auch wenn man nicht zum Spiel will und somit keine Karte in Haenden haelt, kann man zum Dodger Laden fahren. Hierzu faehrt man rechts beim Eingang vor und sagt, dass man zum Shop moechte. Um dahinzukommen haelt man sich an der blauen Linie auf der Strasse, die einen direkt zum Lot P fuehrt. Hier kann man in den Shop reinlaufen, sich draussen am Schalter Tickets kaufen oder einfach kurz reinlaufen, um von oben einen Blick auf das Stadium zu wagen.
Below you see the entrance to the parking area. You can also enter without a ticket if there is no game. Entrane is to the right and just tell the security that you wanna visit the gift shop only. Then follow the blue line on the street which leads you to Lot P close to the gift shop. Visit the gift shop, buy a ticket for the next game or just walk in to the stadium to have a look.

LA Downtown WD Concert Hall

WDCH wurde von Frank Gehry konstruiert. Yasuhisa Toyota von Nagata Acoustics sorgte fuer die ausserordentlich gute Akustik. Ein Konzertbesuch ist sicherlich ein richtiger Ohrenschmauss. Auf der Buehne gibt es eine grosse Orgelpfeife.    You can explore the structure itself from outside by walking around it or also going upstairs.
