This street on the west side is a good place to find food, coffee, and art. Lots of creatives around this area and lots of services for them. Very much a central Hollywood spot.

easy parking on meters
Fairfax has a flea market first Sunday of month, go further into the market to find bargains, stalls near entrance are a rip off

You can find some good places to eat and drink along here, plus a lot of good coffee. One of the hipper neighborhoods in the LA area. Or take a stroll and get out of your car.

Street crime is out of control in Los Angeles at the moment. It seems to be higher in Melrose than other areas along with homeless . i would avoid this area.

Nice walk but with only few interests such as painted wall. If you really have some time to kill in L.A.

I had very high expectations and was a bit disappointed. Lots of shops but also didn’t feel very safe! Streets were dirty. Coffee place (coffee dose) we visited was super nice. Only stayed for an hour as there wasn’t much to see/do.

There plenty of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants along Melrose Avenue and its side streets. The prices are reasonable for regular tourists even though there are very expensive options too. Parking can be challenging and be aware area reserved for local with a special permit only.
