    The tour guide made the tour very interesting, peppered with information and history. The landmarks and monuments visited on the "La Beginnings" tour were interesting. It's always so much more experiential to explore on foot rather than by vehicle.

    We parked underground in a secure lot near the MOCA/BROAD Museum. But there is also a structure adjacent to the Grand Central Market. I think we paid under $10.
