2021 Highlights to Put in Your Calendar

After a difficult year of cancellations and postponements of cultural and sporting events and infrastructure projects, we are starting to see glimmers of life going back to normal. We’ve assembled a list of 7 things we’re looking forward to this year from exhibitions to local hotel openings. While we can’t say for sure that these activities and events will all happen, we have our fingers crossed. We’re putting them in our calendars (in pencil).

The Crenshaw Line is Set to Start Service

One of the developments we’re most looking forward to later this year is the debut of Metro’s newest light rail line, the Crenshaw Line. Once completed, the route will link the E Line stop on the border of West Adams and Leimert Park with the C Line stop by LAX (which will see a people mover extension in 2023), with stops in Inglewood along the way. Look out for an update on the line this month, when hopefully we’ll find out what its letter name will be.
