Visiting the Fairfax District
Getting to Fairfax from LAX is most easily done by car, although there are shuttle services, taxis, and public buses that will get you to most hotels near Los Angeles. While many parts of Fairfax are best investigated on foot (window shopping here is practically a sport), look into rental cars by Fairfax District if you plan on roaming. Once you get into the neighborhood, you may have the hardest decision of your trip – what to do first. You can get tickets and join the happy throngs outside of CBS Television City waiting for tapings of talk and game shows like The Price is Right. Just down the block is the upscale, outdoor shopping city, The Grove. Between the dancing fountain, the live events, and the celebrity sightings, it has become one of THE places to shop in LA. Just next door is The Original Farmers Market. Opened in 1934 as the area was just developing, you will find not only market goodies, but every type of food imaginable. It's a lively spot all year round, and close to budget hotels near Fairfax District. Fabulous thrift finds and antiques are laid out for your scrutiny on Melrose, and after a day of new experiences, you can take your discerning palate down to one of the many hip restaurants created by some of the most popular reality show chefs.
