This is Los Angeles right, so I included some shopping destinations. Melrose Avenue features boutiques that are oriented towards the everyday shopper rather than the super-rich; a lot of sportswear and tennis-shoes can be found in the vicinity of the Melrose and Fairfax intersection. The Grove is one of those now fashionable large outdoor malls, this time in an Italian mode.
