My daughters and I make a trip to Santee Alley in the LA Shopping District every time they need a formal dress. There are many stores and great prices compared to retail.

We made a visit to the Santee Alley this afternoon and it was pretty chaotic. Parking was a mess due to the traffic of both people and vehicles. It was extremely crowded in this shopping area. In terms of what is offered, most of the...More

What a joke- there’s better crap in canal street in NYC. The stuff is all knock-offs and cheap flea market crap. Based on the reviews I was expecting more...also- very seedy. Don’t bother!

This place is bustling with activity. Had a chance to sample and buy a couple of locally made items. Loved the items on sale, especially freshly churned macadamia butter. I regret not buying more. The food options here a good and affordable too.

I was curious to visit Santee Alley and finally got there yesterday. I was thinking it was a venue for up and coming designers to sell their unique things. It is nothing like that. Yes, it is flea market style but that did not bother...More

Unless you’re looking for a prom/formal dress, or some counterfeit Kylie Cosmetics, then don’t bother with Santee Alley. Someone recommended this market area to me, but I was less than impressed. Each store pretty much sells the same thing—phone cases, knock-off t-shirts and toys. If...More

cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
