Located in Lynwood, just off the 105 East midway between LAX and the 605, Plaza Mexico rises up from beyond the endless neighborhoods lining the highway, a pastel-colored beacon with its Spanish conquistador–influenced colonial architecture. There are peaceful, gurgling fountains, tiled courtyards and, of course, mariachi bands. And while there are a few chain stores, mostly the plaza boasts small independent businesses, including a bustling — but not overwhelmingly crowded — mercado; authentic restaurants with handmade tortillas and spicy fresh salsa; the divinely decadent and famous ice cream shop Paletería la Michoacana; an assortment of clothing and Mexican crafts stores; and a carousel for the kids.
