Every good trip plan should include time to visit a few historical sites, such as the Avila Adobe. Built in 1818 to serve as the home of one of the earliest pioneers of the area, the Avila Adobe survived the wrecking ball, which was designated to raze the structure to the ground in 1928. The building, which is the oldest surviving adobe in the plaza, once belonged to the mayor of the pueblo of Los Angeles, Don Francisco Avila. It is now a museum set up as it might have looked like in the 1840s and is open to visitors daily.
