One central and popular destination in downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) for everyone, not just our private Los Angeles tour guests, is the Staples Center. This incredible facility is home to four professional sports organizations. The WNBA Sparks (women’s basketball) made it to the playoffs this season. Two NBA teams (men’s basketball), the Lakers and the Clippers, have legions of fans in the area. And despite our sunny Southern California climate where there are never freezing temperatures we have the NHL Kings (hockey) who play their home games here. With a seating capacity exceeding 18,000 the place rocks when its teams are playing. Like other indoor sports venues Staples Center also hosts large music concerts, ice skating shows, wrestling, circus events…whatever a producer wishes to schedule in a large, centrally located arena in Los Angeles. One of the best things about the Staples Center is that L.A. Live is right across the street. Or, if you have a convention at the L.A. Convention Center then how convenient it is that the Staples Center is right next door. Hotels, restaurants, clubs, theaters and all the other fun and exciting features of a vibrant downtown in a major American city are right at hand.
