Sited at a former train station, this artsy enclave in Santa Monica – home to 30 contemporary and fine art galleries – should be your first stop to begin exploring LA’s burgeoning art scene. Bergamot Station is the perfect destination for cheap dates and lazy days; if art isn’t enough to inspire, the edgy architecture, stylish café (housed in an old heater factory that serves meatloaf and mint lemonade), and fragrant stands of wild bergamot scattered about should amp up the atmosphere. Notable galleries include Frank Lloyd, Robert Berman, and TAG Gallery, as well as the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Not to be missed.
