Top L.A. Shopping Experiences
3rd Street and The Grove. Stores on 3rd Street range from independent designer boutiques to chic houseware havens. Just blocks away, The Grove, an open-air shopping area, has brand-name stores, restaurants, the adjoining Farmers Market, and celebrity sighting.
Main Street, Santa Monica. Three blocks away from the ocean, this is the choice for easy Sunday shopping after stopping at the Farmers Market or before heading to Santa Monica Pier. You'll also spot some impressive street performers.
Melrose Avenue, Melrose Place, and Nearby Robertson. Come to this trendy row of shops to browse or buy unique fashion-forward finds.
Rodeo Drive. There are a surprising variety of shops that are reasonably priced on the surrounding streets—but Rodeo Drive is not to be missed for the quintessential Beverly Hills experience, even if you're only window-shopping.
Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake. If you have a penchant for perfectly worn jeans and a countercultural vibe, this laid-back locale will suit your tastes. With its fashionably rough edges and dirty-chic clientele, Silver Lake is the edgy counterpart to more upscale Los Feliz.
