Stroll along Olvera Street and enjoy its colorful market and festivities. Visit the Avila Adobe, Chinese American Museum, Pico House, Sepulveda House, Siqueiros mural, and the main square with the 1884 Plaza Firehouse, and see as much nearby public art as possible. If you like, finish up your tour with a relaxing cup of tea in the Chado tea house's Japanese garden.
