M&F's New Ongoing Series - Livin' in LA - Vacation in LA!

M&F loves the City of Los Angeles so much that we don't want to go anywhere else--even for vacation.

If the internet is like the streets, no one gets up more than MELROSEandFAIRFAX.  With 10+ fresh posts each day every day, M&F is the most active out of any street art blog and publishes more content than any other street art blog in the world.  (shoot, don't mean to tug our horn but this little blog publishes more articles than half the fully staffed major news networks online!).

Being so busy makes it hard to take a vacation.  But really, who needs to leave the city for a vacation when people of Los Angeles live in a general vicinity that is home to some of the hottest tourist destinations in the world?  We've got the sun.  We've got the beach.  We've got the perfect temperature year round.  LA is pretty amazing, and it seems like it would be a squandered opportunity not to experience more of it.

M&F plans to accomplish two goals at the same time and explore the beautiful little communities of Los Angeles for day-long vacations, at the same time that gather spanking new content from the streets for the blog.  We are Livin' in LA, and we are Vacationing in LA!~

The features are not meant to be taken as an official vacation guide, rather the intention is to give a real view of what it is like experiencing a day in that particular city or area from an outsider's perspective.  The aim includes not only the main streets and the generic tourist spots, but also the side routes and alley ways where the real life and real action is happening.

Of course M&F will keep bringing its viewers the hottest new street art from the busiest spots around the heart of Hollywood and Los Angeles.  This isn't meant to change anything about the way that things are run around here, and M&F will keep churning out the most, best and BIGGEST street art.  This new series will just be a sporadic feature meant to delve even deeper into this beautiful city of Los Angeles.

Stay Up, Los Angeles!~


Below is a list of the cities and general communities that we were thinking of exploring.  If anyone has anything to recommend to check out at any of these spots, or any new places to 'Vacation in LA' please leave a comment--we love hearing about the local secrets!

  1. If and when you go to HB again, you should stop by TK Burger on PCH. There is a gang of stuff in front and back of that burger joint. Through from there you should scope out the surrounding alley ways just off of Main street. Lots of nooks and crannies there too. The bike/walking path that over looks the beach on PCH has a bunch of sticker poles and doggie bag spots too. Don't approve this message for the comments, just sending a private heads up.

    Peace M&F
