It seemed to be just like the other streets with a few more pic locations Melrose and Laural was the hot spot.. where the MADE IN LA sign is

This street of eclectic shops is good for an afternoon, even a day, of strolling. There are lots of different genres of stores & restaurants, and the character of the street changes several times as one walks from La Cienega to La Brea. The vintage shops are a stark contrast to the high-end shops carrying unique non-mass-production clothing. A few... More

Love strolling the street--which attracts a fair share of wacky folks-- and browsing the vintage shops

We went through it on a bus tour. It was interesting to see but that's about it. The tours give you info and facts. I'd suggest only going there is using a tour bus

Even Melrose is not anymore a trendsetting street but it's still very interesting and nice to even walk around ( I'm from NYC )

The newest and hippest boutiques, local hang-outs and cafes can be found stretching along Melrose from Doheny Drive East through West Hollywood. Once you make it through the city, the street gets a bit more rough and edgy with local shops, some smaller restaurants, pizzerias and second hand clothing stores. The better shopping seems to be West of Crescent Heights.... More
