Los Angeles garment industry quarter


I'm considering a trip to the garment quarter combined with a family holiday. I have no idea of the scale of los Angeles or where any of the notable attractions or the garment quarter are. Is this feasible on public transport/taxis? Where is the best part and safest part of Los Angeles to stay? How far would this be from the garment quarter? What are the main attractions of Los Angeles?

Any tips would be gratefully received.

Not sure what you mean by Garment Quarter. I believe you mean Fashion District, perhaps Santee Alley? There are no notable attractions except to maybe find some bargains, but mostly it's just samples for sales, and the day to go is on Friday. If you're going for business then you can start by reading here:


I can't advise whether it's feasible on public transport (or even a taxi) without knowing a starting point, which you don't have.

Please read our FAQs at the top of the LA Forums, particularly read Where to Stay. What is your budget per night for a hotel? Don't worry about safety, not at all.

L.A. like the greater London area is extremely spread out. Like London, you'll need to know which attractions (other than the Fashion District) you wish to visit.

Our FAQs section (a sticky at the top of the TOPIC LIST) offers lots of info to help you get oriented. There is a simplified map under the LOCAL TRANSPORTATION section of the FAQs as well as sample iTINERARIES.

You can also buy or borrow (from a library) a travel guide on Los Angeles. DK Eyewitness, a British publication, is quite good.

One thing that will be clear from the map is that our downtown area (where the Fashion District is) is not really in the center of our city. It's more toward the eastern end of it.
