Now that the year is coming to an end, we revisited some of our favorite memories of 2015: we roadtripped to Coachella, pedaled our way through CicLAvia and celebrated at LA Pride. But we also witnessed new, ambitious changes this year in Los Angeles, including the opening of a new museumthe Broad—and the revival of a trio of historical and cultural institutions—Hollyhock House, Petersen Automotive Museum and Clifton's Cafeteria. We've sorted through some of our favorite shots from those events and more to bring you our best photos from LA and beyond.

RECOMMENDED: See more of the best of 2015.
