Free bus shuttles run along this street to the Queen Mary and other places. We saw so many other shops as we drove from Ranchos Los Certitos towards our place to eat.

The unique thrift and vintage stores are a fun way to spend an afternoon. The restaurants and bars that line the corridor are pretty good as well. Not amazing, but pretty good. The stores are generally overpriced but the Assistance League and the AIDS store...More

Home to a host of varying ethnicities. This is a very quaint and popular, the "East Village". This place ROCKS! Great local culture, restaurants, bars, shopping for unique items, and night-life.

Nice place to shop til you drop. Lots of little shops to check out. Plus there are several places eat and drink for the non-shoppers.

Organic Vegan Chocolate, Terrific food, Fun retro clothes, furniture, decor and goodies. Great shops for gifts for yourself or others and shop owners that make each visitor feel like a special guest. Check it out but wear your walking shoes.

When you're going for a stroll downtown, there's really only one east-west street worth making the connection between Pine and the Promenade and points beyond...that's East 4th. Fun shopping and restaurants. Not as well lit as I'd like at night and a lot of drifters...More

Great Shopping and Dining area. If you are looking for vintage clothing, jewelry, accessories, antiques or other retro items, go to Retro Row. There are several shops to explore and find that special item you have been wanting. There are also many different food choices...More
