  • I think where young people can enjoy fashion and photo spot. I would do better to buy souvenirs there, flea market or grocery store lot.

  • One of the most famous addresses in the greater Los Angeles area, Melrose is interesting to circulate and see the homes and make any meal, but nothing beyond.

  • To Melrose Avenue we have arrived at the city bus 10/48, which runs along the street. On this street, stretching nearly two kilometers lots of good shops. We liked the clothing collection by Marc Jacobs, New York Speed, But in addition, here are selling fashion jewelry, books, souvenirs, flowers, cosmetics, antiques. Snack on Melrose Avenue can be found in the numerous restaurants and cafes. We liked the food and service at Providence.
