Why I Love It
Surround yourself with the ultimate shopping, dining and entertainment experience. Want to feel high-class? The Grove is the place to go. The Grove was built on parts of the historical Farmers Market (built in 1934) and in a sense pays homage to Hollywood of both past and present with it's movie-set architecture, dancing waterfalls, Frank Sinatra serenades and "Main Street" vibe. Just strolling around is FREE and seasonally, the Grove will offer FREE activities or summer movies, too.
If you plan ahead, you can catch a live and free taping at neighboring CBS Television City, visit LACMA, La Brea Tar Pits, some of the best thrift shops around or plan a Saturday visit and hit up the Fairfax Flea Market.
Although they are neighbors, do not part the Original Farmer's Market (aka Los Angeles Farmer's Market) if you are visiting the Grove. The Farmer's Market will only validate parking for the Farmer's Market and vice versa. Also, try to park on levels 4 and up for easy departure from and to the parking garage -- the first floor is confusing!
