Cartwheel Art Tours Coverage: Neighborhood Explorations in Los Feliz, with Cartwheel Art Tours Host – Erin Penner
“From Movie Scenes to Banana Creams: Your Day As a Los Feliz Local”
LA local, former Bostonian and Airbnb home host, Erin Penner, led Neighborhood Explorations with Cartwheel Art Tours, on the ins-and-outs of Los Feliz, from a local’s point of view, for guests of the Airbnb Open. The Neighborhood Explorations were curated and produced by Cartwheel Art Tours founder, Cindy Schwarzstein.
Erin, who adores every part of her Los Feliz neighborhood, shared her local watering hole owned by the stars of Swingers (who still perform there every week!), the Manson Murder sites, the grandiose historical homes of Los Angeles, built by Frank Lloyd Wright, and much more, including tasting pie at the booth in the House of Pies, where Quentin Tarantino wrote Reservoir Dogs.
It was a fun and easy (yet thorough!) walk through Los Feliz Village, and a great opportunity for visitors and locals to get to know the local businesses, meet business owners, and hear the stories behind everything that was seen from Vermont Avenue and beyond, through the perspective of Erin, an elected official on the Hollywood United Neighborhood Council.
Erin, who runs her own nonprofit organization that teaches children and adults to take ownership of LA by learning it’s history, cleaning the city parks & beaches, and feeding the homeless, not only knows the lure of LA, but she also the hidden gems and everything that makes this city tick, which was an integral part of connecting with Erin during her Neighborhood Explorations.
Contact Cindy to have her organize a unique and immersive experience, with Erin, for your private group or organization.
