STYLE / 68

remember that post i did a while back with fun date ideas? you have to add this to it. angel’s flight is located in downtown LA and is named the “shortest railway in the world.” angela and i walked up to it to shoot a style post on the train and thought this would make a very cute date.

the railway was originally built in 1901, and was used to ferry prominent bunker hill citizens up and down the steep hill between hill and olive.

it might be the shortest date ever, but when you’ve been dating for 4 years you just need fun new sights to see together. right? this train costs 50 cents each way, the interior is adorable and somehow the trip (even though it’s about 1 minute or less) is pretty magical.

the guy at the counter was so friendly! check out that smile. (and even the tickets feel old school. a good memory to keep)

this train is a true LA treasure. i am so happy to know about it.

and the outfit details… Urban Outfitters dress, J.Crew belt, Urban Outfitters teal flats.

hope you guys check out angel’s flight, i think you will love it! -bri

    I love this! It’s definitely going on my list of things to do when I head back to LA in December – and that dress? Fantastic!

    This looks like so much fun! It’s on my list of things to do. Next time I’m in LA I’ll be checking it out!

    Very cute! Is there a link to your other date ideas? Would love to see them! πŸ™‚

    LOVE this! I had no idea something this sweet and charming was in downtown LA. Will be suggesting this to the hubby for date night. πŸ™‚

    How fun! What a cute, cute idea!

    I extend that date by grabbing a bite (or three) at the bustling Grand Central Market across the street – my pick: pupusas and a horchata! So much fun.

    Danette says:

    22 years in LA and I have never been there! Actually, maybe 24 years?
    Anyhoo—I have always meant to go but always forget about it. Thanks for the reminder.

    It looks so quiet, did you go early?

    Queen Mother says:

    I wanna go! : )

    Hillary says:

    Trains like these are called funiculars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_funicular_railways). I rode a bunch of them in Portugal (at least 3/8, maybe 4).

    Jaclyn says:

    This is so cute! i love the little wood benches inside. I can’t believe I have never gone on this, I used to drive by it so much, but never thought to stop and take a ride. Love your outfit too, those white tights are such a fun alternative to black.

    Bettina says:

    I’d always seen this train with my sister in dtown la but we never went on, we really should have since she’s moved away now. I remember she freaked out the first time we were by the train because she realized that it was the park that was used for 500 days of summer.

    bri says:

    hahaha jaclyn those are just my pale legs. no white tights required! this is making me laugh pretty hard right now. i forgot to get tan this year.

    Sarah says:

    so sweet! there is something similar in Budapest that I wanted to try when I was visiting, but I opted for the billions of stairs just to say I did it. πŸ™‚

    Chick Tyler says:

    This is totally presh!

    Love it! Your little urban dress is so cute too.

    paige (bf+v) says:

    ha! been by it a million times, but have never actually taken a ride! i’ll add it to my bucket list. πŸ˜‰

    Hillary says:

    Love Angel’s Flight! I only wish the real neighborhood of Bunker Hill was still there; the hillside used to be covered in gorgeous Victorian mansions & Houses (like the ones in Angelino Heights area of Echo Park). They saved a few buildings before bulldozing the area in the 80s and you can visit them at Heritage Square in Highland Park (another fun little trip- ) their info – http://heritagesquare.org/about

    AH! Can’t wait to do this. I”ve been dating my boyfriend for 4 years and absolutely agree that any cool new ideas are necessary and welcome!
    Definitely will check it out πŸ™‚

    ali says:

    Do people actually take trains in LA? Heh. Funny looks more like San Francisco!

    Hey Bri, such an innovative date idea! I totally thought you were wearing tights too, haha! I’ve also joined the pale club this year. Oh well, at least we’re healthy and your legs look amazeballs, pale or not. Xo

    Elisse says:

    I actually did this with my boyfriend a few weeks ago!! And I made a blog post about it too. I recommend heading across the street to the Grand Central market for tacos afterwards.

    Latrina says:

    I really love your blog posts about the little places in LA you’ve discovered. They’ve inspired me to do the same here in Sacramento!

    I love the date idea! What an amazingly cute train, too. I’m adding it to the list of my must do once I’m back in LA. πŸ™‚

    Elise says:

    love it! the steepest one is in my hometown in Iowa http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenelon_Place_Elevator

    BriHenning says:

    Your photographs are always so beautiful, I would love to know what type of camera are you using to take these.

    Elly says:

    Judy says:

    How come you tend to hide your face in photos? Either with your hair/bangs or objects, like today’s dollar bill. I know you’re very photogenic so you should embrace everything about yourself!

    bri says:

    hi judy! i guess it’s just because i want to showcase the clothes and not be too posey in the face. that can get awkward πŸ™‚

    OMGosh! I love these pictures! I didnt know we can go inside!!

    tia says:
