Top 20 Fairfax & Melrose, Los Angeles vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Located just west of affluent Hancock Park, the neighbourhoods of Fairfax and Melrose are located in Central Los Angeles (if the city can even claim to have a centre, that is). It's been a historically Jewish neighbourhood since the mid-1900s when a large number of LA's Jewish population moved in. Today it's a funky mash-up of tattoo parlours, vintage stores, and popular restaurants. On a walk through this vibrant, edgy neighbourhood, you'll pass young creatives, skateboarders, as well as families in Orthodox Jewish attire. Be sure to check out the Melrose Trading Post (a fab flea market) which is open every Sunday rain or shine, and follow it up with a pizza at cult favourite Jon and Vinnys.
