If you are searching for a truly eclectic shopping experience, look no further than Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. This bustling district, which stretches from Venice Boulevard to Pacific Avenue, is a popular destination for Boho chic shoppers. Dubbed "the coolest block in America" by GQ, Abbot Kinney is home to one-of-kind local goods as well as internationally recognized brands. Shoppers in the know come to Abbot Kinney on the first Friday night of each month for a unique shopping experience. During Abbot Kinney First Fridays, the boulevard becomes a street festival filled with live music, food trucks and more. But you can visit Abbot Kinney any day for a laid back shopping experience.

Served by both the Red and Purple Lines, the Wilshire/Vermont station is accessible to educational institutions such as Southwestern University and Robert F Kennedy Community Schools. Above the station is a mixed-use transit village development, with apartments and retail space in a building designed by architecture firm Arquitectonica. Dedicated platforms for eastbound trains are located on the upper level and westbound trains stop on the lower level.

Korean BBQ favorites like Soowon Galbi and Soot Bull Jeep are located a half-mile from the station. The Prince is as famous for its Korean-style fried chicken as it is for its classic decor and appearance on Mad Men.

Howard Johnson Los Angeles is conveniently located a block from the Wilshire/Vermont station.
