What can you buy for 25 cents anymore? Five pieces of Skittles out of the candy machine or a handful of goat food at the petting zoo? Those things might be worth your quarter but won't have a very long lasting impression like the best 25 cents ever spent.
That's right, Angels Flight only costs a quarter per ride and is more than worth the money. In case you are unfamiliar with Angels Flight, it is the shortest railroad in the world. It is located in Downtown Los Angeles in the Bunker Hill district and will save you from walking up or down a hefty flight of stairs from Hill St. to Olive St. It is much more than just a shortcut, though. The ride in the original cable cars really brings the culture of the early 1900s, the year of its conception, back to life. Since automobiles were only owned by the rich during that time, Angels Flight was a very useful mode of transportation. While riding down one of the two carts on this photo shoot day a woman was overheard saying, "This is better than any ride at Knott's Berry Farm." That statement couldn't be more true. Angels Flight is definitely a must ride for all. More information can be found on its official page or in the Angels Flight Wiki.
