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.

This is situated across the road from Union Station. The free tour was very long at 55 mins and the material boring although the docent was very engaging and friendly. We loved browsing the stores with traditional mexican clothing, souvenirs, decor and other goods. There are numerous restaurants offering authentic fare and all the staff are dressed up in traditional... More

I been here a lot throughout my life. On weekends can get quite busy and there will be a lot to see. Ok deals can be had at the little carts and shops. Some places over charge for food. Parking is a little tricky and will cost no matter where you try. Overall Olivera st. Is a historic landmark and... More

If you were a tourist in Mexico in a small town square you would encounter exactly what you find here. The vendors, the goods, the restaurants the atmosphere all offer a glimpse of Mexico.

Located in downtown LA, this is where the city was founded in 1781 with a mission/church and cemetery. It is worth a stop to learn about the history of LA and you do not have to spend hours. You can see all of the grounds in one hour and there is a parking lot just across the street. You can... More

This was interesting but much more limited than I expected. It was similar to Cozumel, Mexico with the vendors all selling the same things. The history and buildings were interesting. Restaurants were plentiful. The park that we had hoped to enjoy was closed to the public due to an event that was going on. Admission was being charged and the... More
