Olvera Street is one of the oldest streets in Los Angeles. This historic district is located in downtown Los Angeles, as part of the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument. Dating all the way back to 1930, Olvera Street pays homage to the deeply rooted Mexican heritage of Los Angeles.

The street offers a block of the long narrow, tree-shaded, brick-lined market-style shopping areas with old structures, painted stalls, street vendors, cafes, restaurants and gift shops to explore.

With the weather in Los Angeles being so great this place is fun all year round. It's full of good food and is just the right size to enjoy and explore for an afternoon.
