I always come here when I am in town. I went to several museums like the Pico House and the Chinese American Museum that are free and the personnel there were very nice. There was a a lot of Mexican dancing on the plaza. There are a lot of little shops that sell several types of Mexican souvenirs from blankets... More

I was at LA Union with 3 hours to kill before heading to Anaheim by rail. Thanks to Trip Advisor I happened upon this historic area and my time was nicely filled. There are a number of exhibitions available for FREE viewing and I have posted a few photographs to show how these early land settlers lived. Well worth spending... More

My cousin married a Mexicana and they brought me here because they wanted me to taste the most "Mexican" spot in LA before I went to Mexico city. They toured me around. They had shops with Our Lady of Guadalupe figurines, Cuahtemoc, dia de los muertos shirts, ponchos, lucha libre masks and all those beautiful and colorful sombreros. I was... More

Very nice place, the mexican district of LA. A Genuine, colored and authentic square near Downtown. A good spot to remember the latin roots of the city.

We didn't get to see the mural as we got there after 3, that would have been cool, but the house and the whole area was great nonetheless

I am a native of Los Angeles so I can frequent this place as often as I like (when I am in town), lol. I recommend this place to all who visit Los Angeles. It is like you are back in time in Old Mexico. There are restaurants, all sorts of Mexican food, beverages, and things to purchase. There is... More

Many people know about Olvera Street, a touristy little recreation of a Mexican bizaar, but not everyone knows about he surrounding historic monument. I've been to the monument many times, but this was my longest visit. We had about 5 hours before meeting my wife's brother and his family and my wife wasn't sure what we would do. We didn't... More

This attraction is tacky, touristy and, imho, highly overrated. I have never once taken an out of town visitor here, nor would I. It would be too embarrassing.
