Westside And Beverly Hills

Westside And Beverly Hills

The famous Rodeo Drive sits at the center of the ‘Golden Triangle’ – Santa Monica Boulevard to the north, Wilshire Boulevard to the south and Canon Drive to the east. This is where the big people buy big names for big money. A familiar backdrop in lots of movies, it is certainly worth a look – even if you can’t afford anything. Some of the streets off Rodeo Drive are slightly more affordable. West Third Street (between Fairfax and Robertson Boulevards) is a fun shopping street and one of the most popular in the city, with great boutiques, some gorgeous antique shops and trendy cafés.

Downtown

Downtown

Downtown L.A. is an eclectic mix of bargain stores, markets and ethnic enclaves and is well worth a bit of exploration. A good place to start is Santee Alley, between Santee and Maple Streets and Olympic Boulevard and 12th Street, where designer clothing can be found at very low prices. Olvera Street is a wonderfully lively pedestrian street near Union Station (www.olvera-street.com), where stalls selling Mexican goods and food of all sorts line the sidewalks and musicians wander up and down making nice sounds. Another spot worth checking out is the covered Grand Central Market (317 South Broadway, between 3rd and 4th Streets), which has been open since 1917. For a bargain price, you can pick up all manner of ingredients, both usual and unusual, and eat your way through the ethnic food stalls.
