Melrose Avenue is more notably a tourist destination then an actual shopping area. However, with that being said, you will still find plenty of shops along the famed avenue. As you walk the street, you’ll find a mix of shops from highly affordable thrift shops to upscale name brands. The people watching opportunities along Melrose Ave are also second to none. If you get hungry after all your shopping, be sure to visit the historic Pink’s Hot Dogs at the corner of Melrose and La Brea. Visit www.melroseavenue-shop.com for more information.
Looking for variety during your shopping experiences? If so, how does an 8 story shopping center with over 100 stores sound to you? If it sounds like something you might be interested in, be sure to head to the Beverly Center. Located on the edge of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, the Beverly Center’s selling point is the variety it offers. Enjoy Bloomingdale’s as well as designer boutiques all in the same location. Don’t forget to head to the mall’s rooftop terrace for an excellent view of downtown and the west side. For a list of stores visit www.beverlycenter.com
