Echo Park Lake Westside view

Most Fridays around noon, we feel a bit torn- chill at home for the night or venture out?

And if we head out, where should we go & what’s there to do?

How ’bout starting your Friday adventure at the Echo Park Farmers Market?

Not too long ago we soaked up Echo Park & walked all around the area – a weekday, urban hike that had us starting  at Tierra Mia Coffee & walking around the lake & over to the the gorgeous Victorian homes in Angeleno Heights – & then finishing the day driving down Sunset to Guisados.

It’s right on Sunset, just a couple of blocks from the lake & the perfect starting point for an urban hike.

Fruits, vegetables, food trucks, kids activities- with a view of Echo Park lake behind you – the Echo Park Farmers Market is a rad destination, but also in a great location.

With cheese curds, small apples & fresh eggs all packed away, it was time for a little exploring.

It’s no secret that we totally dig mixed-used spaces, so we had to check out this 1/2 bike repair shop & 1/2 Mexican/Guatemalan artisan market. Totally worth peeking in, especially if you’re looking for kids’ gifts.

Who doesn’t love the familiar smell of a used bookstore?

Stories Book’s and Cafe is a fun spot to grab a book, bite, or coffee – & they serve locally-roasted Bicycle Coffee, which is a cool company that delivers their coffee on bicycles.

Tree-lined Sunset Boulevard, coffee shops, bookstores…

If you’ve never popped into a Time Travel Market/826LA, it’s worth a visit.

Quirky gifts & displays that will make you do a double take.  The best part? 100% of anything you buy benefits the non-profit 826LA.

They have a cool story &  free afternoon tutoring for kids.

 We strolled towards the lake on the outer stretch of sidewalk, taking in the architecture around Echo Park Lake.

Tons of stairs to do in Echo Park

Still have some time?

Walk up to Angeleno Heights… especially if you’re close to sunset.

The Victorian homes are amazing to see.

We had another fun adventure in Echo Park recently – come check it out.
