Hidden in downtown L.A. is Olvera street, the oldest street in the city and also one of the most interesting. You literally feel as if you have left the city and been transported to a different city or even country! The street is lined with historic buildings and filled with an incredible Mexican marketplace bustling with rich color and traditional music.
It's also a great spot to eat authentic mexican food…and get serenaded by a local….not awkward at all!!
