DTLA Shopping: Shop These Malls & Districts

If there’s a place to shop until you drop, it’s Los Angeles. Downtown Los Angeles is full of everything from high-end boutiques to local markets, making it a mecca for any vacation souvenirs. In need of a few trinkets for yourself or a friend? Want to bring home something from an up and coming designer? You won’t have to venture far. 

The Mayfair Hotel is just blocks away from the famous Los Angeles Fashion District, featuring 100 blocks of apparel, accessories, textiles, flowers, and lofts. Visit the festive Santee Alley for over 150 shopping options including toys, perfume, gifts and so much more. Also part of the Fashion District are the historic Jewelry and Flower Districts, home to the largest floral selection in the United States. Come in the early morning to see every variety of cut flowers, potted plants, dried and silk flowers, and floral supplies. 

If the Fashion District doesn’t meet your shopping needs, you can ride the city bus, ride share or taxi to Beverly Hills. Take a stroll along the famous Rodeo Drive and marvel at designer brands such as Armani, Gucci, Chanel, Cartier, and Tiffany. The European-style shopping complex is a great place for photo-ops, window-shopping and finding designer clothing. You can also explore the many retail shops at The Grove and sample delicious food from all over the world at The Farmer’s Market.
