LAX/Inglewood



Inglewood and the LAX area enjoy a rich African American influence. The area has historically been the seat of affluence for African Americans in the Los Angeles area. Baldwin Hills rivals Beverly Hills and Bel Air in its offering of important architecture. In the 1960's and 1970's, Inglewood became an epicenter for sports due to the building of the Hollywood Park Racetrack and the Forum.

Since its accessibility to major freeways, Inglewood and the area surrounding Los Angeles International Airport has become a business-centric region with clusters of hotels and restaurants. Dine at Encounters at LAX for breathtaking panoramic views of the city. Historical landmarks worth visiting are the 1934 Adobe and the Centinela Valley Heritage and Research Center.

Check out Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Shopping Plaza with great shops, restaurants and fitness facilities. Macy's also boasts The Museum of African American Art, which exhibits the work of new and acclaimed artists. The Palmer Hayden Collection is part of the permanent collection of works from one of the leading artists of the Harlem Renaissance.
