My Style & Travel: Melrose Avenue









One of my favorite things in California besides going to the beach is exploring the diverse cities. One of the most famous streets in LA is Melrose Avenue.  Along Melrose, there are chic restaurants, eclectic stores, and stunning murals. This famous pink wall is found at Paul Smith8221 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046. The store has a consistent crowd of bloggers, photographers, and tourists using it as a backdrop. Luckily there is plenty of room for everyone. I recommend going an hour to thirty minutes before sunset. It wasn't overly crowded and you have shade for even lighting. Across the street, there is a wall on a coffee shop that changes often. The first time I went I saw a beautiful mural celebrating the release of the movie La La Land, and this time there was a colorful painting of giant flowers.

A popular restaurant on Melrose (that you can often spot celebs and social media stars enjoying) is Urth Caffé, 565 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069. I have been there once and enjoyed it. I didn't see anyone that I thought was famous, but there were plenty of LA locals who thought they were uber important. Just a heads up, it is normally packed, you have to grab a seat when you spot one open, and you have to stand in line to order. It's not large inside, so luckily they provide seating outside as well. I was a fool and tried to eat healthy while my travel buddy ordered their pizza; it looked and smelled so delicious. My smoothie was great as well. If you find yourself on Melrose and are looking for an authentic LA café experience, I recommend you give it a try. What are your favorite places on Melrose Avenue? Do you have go-to murals or restaurants in LA? I'd love to hear in the comments below! Xoxo, Shelly
