I was not impressed with his block of Los Angeles. Nothing really interesting here. The food wasn't all that. I would suggest this as a skip unless you are staying in downtown LA and are completely bored.

Take the time to take an official tour and see the old adobe structure and the church. Restaurants are all fun and shopping, too. This is where L.A.... More

San Antonio Winery and the Curros are to die for. Best visit during Dia De Los Muertos. There are also some amazing shops in the walkable plaza.

Olvera Street is great for an inexpensive lunch (La Luz or Cielito Lindo - the restaurants in the middle of the shopping area are less authentic), then a short walk to the Iglesia de Reina Los Angeles (the mission style church across the street), Union Station and Chinatown.

Right across from Union Station, Olvera Street is just part of the downtown LA experience. Try one of the restaurants and do a little shopping.

We have been going there since I was a child. The food is authentic and delicious. Enjoy the open market vendors as you stroll the oldest street in Los Angeles. Great place to go before a Dodger game!

If you never been over the border, this is a great way to see some great shopping and excellent food, listen to mariachis and have real margaritas.

I live in LA, I love history in places. Mexico has imprinted its history, food, traditions in this Street. So that no Politician ever forgets that Hispanics are woven into the American way of life. Love LA with all that it has
