Olvera Street and China Town
Olvera Street, known as “the birthplace of Los Angeles,” is a Mexican Marketplace that recreates a romantic “Old Los Angeles” with a block-long narrow, tree-shaded, brick-lined market with old structures, painted stalls, street vendors, cafes, restaurants and gift shops. Olvera Street was created in 1930 “to preserve and present the customs and trades of early California." Discover for yourself the wonders of this historic location starting with a walking tour of El Pueblo Historical Monument and Olvera Street. The fun continues as we explore China Town, one of the Nation’s first malls and certainly, the first modern American Chinatown. In 1938, California’s Governor Merriam and a host of dignitaries dedicated Los Angeles Chinatown’s Central Plaza in a gala Grand Opening ceremony. Lunch on your own in Chinatown.
