We always drive into LA to shop for the day from Vegas! This trip we hit up Korea town and we loved it. The food was amazing and the Korean dollar store never disappoints! Have to go if you are in the area:)

We love K-pop and Korean food and toys so enjoyed our time here. Go to the parking lot under Koreatown Plaza for free parking on Sunday and the walk along to Galleria.
