Olvera Street - Review
Olvera Street is one of the oldest streets of Los Angeles. That is probably the reason why you would definitely find a lot of history attached to each nook and corner of this city. It used to be a part of Chinatown in the past, but with passing time, its location had to be changed. The new location is a lot more lively and a lot more frequented by tourists and locals alike. There are 27 buildings of various ages still standing on Olvera Street, including the Avila Adobe (1818), the Pelanconi House (1857), and the Sepulveda House (1887). Sablo De Gloria is an important event held before Easter which is considered as a blessing of animals. Visit Olvera street and time travel with its tiny shops lined up, the colour and charm of an old town and catch a glimpse of old Spanish culture.

An overwhelming plethora of smells, sounds and sights, this street embraces the soul of Mexican culture in the very heart of Los Angeles. Indulge in some authentic Mexican food, trail along the and satisfy your inner shopaholic at the local shops, stand and listen to the mariachis playing around you, take a tour of history through the Avila Adobe or just sit in, relax and take in the warmth of the vibrant atmosphere. This street offers something for everyone. No disappointment.
Its quaint...... Picturesque..... with thee best LEATHER belt selections anywhere!! For about 20 bux i finally found a solid belt that will last me more than 6 months!! Malls seldom or maybe never have solid belts.... They have those that last 3 months on average. Great Place to visit.
Local people do use this plaza, just chilling. There are also homeless people taking naps there as well. Sometimes, you will see school buses or tourist buses stop by because Olvera Street is one of the tourist attraction spots. There is a Tour Office right near the plaza, right next to the Fire House. They give FREE tour about the historic sites in this neighborhood. It is very informative. Besides shopping and dinning at Olvera Street, there are a few museums near by as well. The Tour Office has all the information.
It's not Disneyland; it's remnants from our not so distant past, 100 to 200 years ago (in Los Angeles). Our parents took us to old places like this when we were kids. Now it brings back fond memories. For visitors: take the tours. Read the historic plaques. Eat some good food and take pictures.
