Being from the midwest I always assumed The Fashion District would be some sort of slightly less glamorous version of Rodeo Drive. Not even close. Think more like Tijuana - but the prices aren't necessarily negotiable unless you're buying in volume. The San Pedro area...More

An old part of downtown, full of old office buildings and warehouses, many of which have been and are being turned into apartments. Some good architecture. Place to shop for bargains.

Rows and Rows of Shops and lovely items to purchase, amazing shopping experience. Just come with a shopping cart especially if you want to walk long distances

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
