Located only a block from L.A.’s iconic railway hub, Union Station, Olvera Street is the oldest part of Los Angeles. Immerse yourself in Mexican culture by strolling down the two narrow blocks, shaded by trees, bougainvillea and red-tile roofs. You can shop for traditional handicrafts (like the colorful ones in the photo above), enjoy the sounds of mariachi music and watch live performances of folkloric dancing. Don’t miss out on freshly made tortillas and churros too!
Admission is Free. Located within El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Park, 845 N. Alameda St., Los Angeles
