Always like taking a stroll down Melrose Ave. Lots to see and do. Park at a meter and just start walking around. If you are in Hollywood, chances are you will want to check out this famous street.

Melrose Avenue made famous by the television series of the same name tends to be popular with tourists but locals tend to just shrug their shoulders wondering what's the big deal. Its hip and happening but expensive and maybe just a little bit of a tourist trap and tat combined.

Melrose provides it all, From artsy graffiti in the alley or on melrose, different boutiques and restaurants going east. Going west you have urth cafe, lucques, crossroads, and melrose place where you have higher end stores and restaurants fig and olive and Alfred's.

We drove down Melrose Avenue last week as part of our city tour and were pretty impressed with the size and prize of some of those houses. That being said, there is really nothing else interesting to do on that street. I guess that if you are part of a tour that drives you down that street, its OK but... More

It is located between Hollywood and Beverly Hills. - This dining and shopping ara is most famous for Melrose District, with its alternative clothing shops looking a bit like a flee market. It looks different from the polish shopping streets often found in Beverly Hills. - Melrose Heights, between La Cienega and Fairfax, has more upscales restaurants and shops.
