Within walking distance of Union Station, a wonderful place to start exploring DownTown LA. Plenty to see, from some of the earliest buildings in LA through to colourful stalls selling all kinds of Spanish-inspired food, souvenirs, clothes, etc along Olvera Street. There are a few...More

If you love the contrast of modern and old, this is a great place to visit. There are a ton of historical buildings, some with small museums, and shops / places to eat. There is a bit of tourism, with all of the vendors, but...More

This was a great area that gives a good historical view of how LA came to be, complete with National Park Service folks, vendors, museums, art installations and historic murals. A bit of a tourist trap, so highly recommend working with local groups on a...More

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

A nice mix of "street" vendors, shops and restaurants. The food is authentic, and the shopping is good if you go into the stores along the sides. Some authentic Mexican wares, which was really nice to see. Worth the stop if you have an hour,...More

There is a small park here with a statue of Saint Junipero Sera, who began the California missions. There are trees and flowers, and a grassy lawn.
