Melrose Avenue

7769 is a postcode where there’s a load of street art going on; it’s worth coming round here every couple of weeks to see what’s new.

Melrose Avenue

Dedicated to the people of LA rather than tourists, this sign has become one of the city’s favorites.

The overview of the area was interesting and well done. But the document was really huge and difficult to download on the go. And it lacked an actual map with pins of the locations where we were going - which for a walking tour, seems crucial. We ended up depending on the list of addresses to find our way. At that point, several of the murals which were listed were in fact no longer there. So it was really of minimal utility and not worth the money - I could have googled a location for breakfast and just walked down Melrose to look at storefronts and murals just as easily.

I thought that when you said it was a tour by yourself you were paying to enter or be in exclusive areas to take instagram photos. and that I was not going to pay for a ticket for 2 people. For something that anyone has access, it is absurd that they charge for something that is on the street and nobody pays I feel scamed
