One of my favorite things in California besides going to Venice beach is exploring the diverse city. One of the most famous streets in LA is Melrose Avenue. Along Melrose, there are chic restaurants, the cutest and coolest stores, and stunning murals. This famous pink wall is found at Paul Smith, 8221 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 early in the morning when it’s not crowded or just before sunset to see that golden glow on this awesome pink wall. It wasn’t overly crowded in general and you have shade for even lighting. Across the street, there is a wall on a coffee shop that changes often and is great to see!
We visited a popular restaurant we fell in love with, Catch LA, that we ended up going back for a second visit too before we left LA it was that good! Just a heads up, it is normally packed, so make sure to make reservations maybe on open table before to avoid disappointment! Another tip- order loads and share it all- even with Marcus! I’m not a huge sharer normally but I didn’t want to miss out on trying multiple dishes so sharing was a great idea!
