Nice place for a stroll, especially if you have children. Interesting historic adobe house / museum with many street vendors. A nice change of pace if you're looking for something different in LA.

Some dont realise LA was Mexican once as the old houses (free entry) depict. We bought genuine leather at good prices. A pleasant walk from Union Station.

Hollywood’s version of Old Mexico. Often I imagine I am on a Studio back lot when I walk Olvera Street and the surrounding plazas and historic buildings. It just has a false sense of being. Not bad, just not a true representation. Still, it is...More
