Looking for a romantic spot for a special day out with your special someone? Check out Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles for a truly memorable day trip. Originally designated as an official State Historic Landmark in 1953, the market at Olvera Street is a lovely and romantic destination for a special night out. This living museum pays tribute to the truly romantic vision of old Mexico, with all the brightly colored facades, exposed brick buildings, and plenty of vendor stands selling everything from pottery to serapes and sombreros to piñatas.
Make it a romantic night for two at Olvera Street. Dine on some tapas or enchiladas (word is the best enchiladas are at a small restaurant called La Noche Buena located on Olvera Street.) Drink some truly amazing frozen margaritas and finish up with the best churros in town from Mr. Churro.
Once you’ve had your fill from all the amazing food, wander the artisan booths hand in hand with your loved one, browsing all the fine crafts and handmade art and learning a lot about the history of the area. You can even visit The Avila Adobe, the oldest house in Los Angeles, built in 1818. Or stop and enjoy some live music courtesy of the many different street performers that put on shows regularly. You and your special someone are sure to soak up all the culture of this historic spot in California, and you’ll make it a truly memorable and romantic occasion.
Just be sure to head down to Olvera Street in style. Drive your new CL600 Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. This stunning coup is the perfect way to transport your loved ones with style. Begin making your favorite romantic memories with a coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino.
