My World Tuesday #3 - Olvera Street

My World Tuesday is a new meme hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy Tom over at Show Your World. Today I decided to share Olvera Street. Olvera Street is located in downtown Los Angeles directly across from Union Station the train station.


Olvera Street has been there for as long as I can remember and anyone who works downtown and loves Mexican food has been there and probably tries to get there for lunch for authentic Mexican food.



There is plenty of shopping. Though most are authentic Mexican wares and you think you might not find anything to buy outside of souvenirs, you can find wonderful leather bags at wonderful prices and leather sandals. Maybe you'll even find some pottery or any one of many other beautiful Mexican crafts.



And then there is the entertainment.

How did I miss this post. :)
That first image does not evoke LA in the least. It looks old world and I love that about it.
Looks like a delightful place to stroll and have lunch.
Great pics.
