Downtown Los Angeles is filled with an incredibly amount of choices for food. One of our favorites to grab a bite to eat while also picking up fresh fruit, trail mix, handmade skin scare products, beautiful flowers and then indulging in a little dessert, is at one of the many Farmers Markets throughout Los Angeles.
If you are a fan of chili burgers, then your visit to Los Angeles will not be complete without a visit to Original Tommy's Hamburgers. A local Angelo favorite, Tommy's has been offering burgers, fries, hot dogs and even tamales smothered in chili since 1946. Yes, 1946! Tommy's is so popular, it's even part of some tour group stops.

Every year, we have guests stay with us who will be attending the Rose Parade in Pasadena. For those international guests unfamiliar with the Rose Parade, it is a popular parade that has been running annually on January 1st for more than 125 years. It travels a 5 1/2 mile stretch of spectators, showcasing floats made out of - you guessed it - ROSES, as well as marching bands, cultural dance performances and more.
Around the Downtown LA and surrounding areas, you will see Latin American fruit carts loaded with watermelon, cantaloupe, mango, jicama, cucumber and other seasonal fruits. You get to customize your fruit selection and get only the fruits you want. What makes these fruit carts special is that you can top your fruit with chili powder and/or lime. We personally always get both because there is something really great about that sweet-meets-sour bite.
