Anywhere you may live, there are little pockets in there that seem fuller of life, seem to have better choices for groceries or eating or drinking or just plain living.  Here are 8 such pockets around the world that look worth traveling to, don’t you think?

Here’s a sample of Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles:

For more than half a century, Fairfax Avenue was L.A.’s borscht belt, dominated by Jewish delis, bakeries, and tchotchke shops—until 2004, when the New York City cult streetwear brand Supreme stepped onto the scene. Now the stretch between Waring and Oakwood avenues—thick with art galleries, cafés, sneaker shops, and buzzy restaurants—defines L.A.’s downtown vibe. “Fairfax in the 2000s started with indie art and the skater scene, and everyone else followed—like Venice in the seventies,” says John Terzian, president, co-owner, and cofounder of the h.wood Group, which runs celebrity hot spots like Nice Guy and Bootsy Bellows. The combination of old and new—septuagenarian locals mixing with teenage skate rats and tattooed sous chefs—lends the area an of-the-moment appeal.

Lucky Los Angeles!
