Get the door, it's the liquor store
Although not located on an island in the Pacific, Hawaiian Gardens enjoys over 280 days of sunshine each year and... average temperatures in the low 80’s. The unique name derives from a 1920’s tropical-themed beverage stand that once served as the area’s most recognized landmark. You won’t find poi or kalua pig, but this humble, south Los Angeles neighborhood has over a dozen authentic Mexican restaurants. Just two hours from Tijuana, the taquerias and mom and pop establishments in Hawaiian Gardens are brimming with spicy bites. Beyond the margaritas and the tacos, Hawaiian Gardens has its other temptations. While the smallest city in L.A. County, Hawaiian Gardens is one of the few places in the region where gambling is legal. Before a night around the blackjack table, order your evening aperitif from Drizly. You’ll feel pretty lucky once you see how easy it is to find your favorite cocktail mixes and liquors, all delivered to you in less than an hour.
