How can anyone possibly stop in this area?....the most horrific homeless situation I have ever seen. There is no bargain here that's worth risking your life for!

Cheap trashy junk. Booth after booth of the same items. Nothing what I had expected-higher end items at bargain prices.

There so much to see and buy. This place got all types of clothes, shoes, and jewels. Weekends are pretty busy and it can be hard to find parking and restrooms.

My husband and I were looking for casual outfits and dress suits. Los Angeles Street is the place to go to to find quality suits, but the stores are intermixed with cheaper goods. Know your brands, and check out the quality. A $130 men's suit, can look like a $130 men's suit on. Negotiate prices. If you leave for a... More

When we arrived the area was packed with people, probably 2pm ish. Where the taxi driver dropped us off was cnr of Maple and Olympic, the area just looked like a great big market, full of cheap clothing at cheap prices. We bought absolutely nothing, everything seemed dirty and cheap. We kept walking and came across a new section which... More

Great place when looking for low cost items. Of course you can find expensive clothing as well, but the main focus seems to be low cost clothing and the quality is good.

I was a little disappointed as I wanted to spend the day getting a complete new wardrobe for me and my daughter. I felt that it was cheap and nasty road side stands that had hundreds of the same item. We still had a good time, window shopping and we did buy one or two items, but it wasn't what... More

Wear comfy shoes and be prepared to walk. It gets very repetitive, but deals can be found. I love just walking around looking eating from the many street vendors! There is tons of people everywhere, don't suggest taking little kids with you.

It good to visit on a weekday. But watch traffic is heavy. Parking is quite expensive, but available every corner. Get out the car and walk around stores that sell all kind if items, from clothing,shoes, jewelry, etc.

We didn't go buy anything specific but after walking around some it gets very repetitive! Everyone sells the same stuff. It was hot and crowded. We went on a Sunday maybe that's why i also had my kid in a stroller which made it harder to navigate through the crowds. I would go again but not on a very hot... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
