    The “It’s a Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod City” tour does not begin at the Los Angeles Conservancy office. The tour is a self-driving tour, so tourgoers get to choose their own route. Docents will lead tours at each site.

    Please call the Conservancy office if you have any questions at 213/623-2489 or visit the tour site at http://lac.laconservancy.org.

    Thank you and we hope to see you on November 8!
