We went to visit the small eclectic stores that lined Melrose only to find they for the most part are no longer there. I hope it is not to long for this area to thrive once again but for now is is nowhere near is past.

Grab your girlfriends or boyfriends and take a few hours to just explore all the colorful and fun shops here! Beware of hefty price son things you could probably find downtown LA in Santee alley, but really the atmosphere and free spirit is worth a visit! Ue the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf bathroom when you need to go, nowhere... More

It´s a nice area to go for a walk and have a drink or something to eat without being in the crazy areas of LA.

Melrose Avenue is very famous in L.A. It is a shopping, dining and entertainment district. The most famous landmark on Melrose Avenue is Paramount Pictures. It is definitely worth visiting when in L.A.

If you are into shopping, this is your haven. Other than that, some parts of it is full of nice little cafes and restaurants. Other parts are just one over-priced clothing store after another. If you are a tourist visiting place, it's still a must, even for the sake of being able to say "been there."

You park on the street and just walk a bit. That sounds a big strange in L.A. but on Melrose this is possinle. You find small shops and you see celebrity lifestile around
