...only in good ol' Silverlake would you find a 100 year old sycamore tree entirely covered in chandeliers (around 30 to be exact). I'm ALL about this enchanting hidden LA gem. I originally heard about the Chandelier Tree via Yelp while browsing things to do & see in this cute and eclectic part of town. Apparently the house belongs to a nice man who has inherited all of these chandeliers and decided to turn them into a beautiful modern art display for the public to enjoy (read his story by clicking here). Honestly, how thoughtful is that? There's a parking meter underneath the tree where you can donate quarters to help the homeowner pay the electric bill, but the quarters won't turn chandelier lights on if they're off. Please keep in mind that the lights aren't always on (truth: I came here a few weeks ago when I was in the area and they weren't on around 8:00pm) but I got lucky the second time around when I stopped by at around 9:00pm. There's plenty of street parking and chances are you won't be the only one visiting this magical tree. I accidentally crashed what seemed to be a first or second date...oops.
I'd highly recommend you bring your next date or best bud along to see this pretty one-of-a-kind sight. It's a really romantic evening setting in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood. The Chandelier Tree is located in Silverlake at 2811 W Silver Lake Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90039.
