It might not look like a lot from the street, but The Record Collector is a magnificent, mind-blowing adventure. For vinyl-enthusiasts, collectors and anybody with a little curiosity, a wander through the record store is akin to entering another realm. The store is made up of several rooms, lined top-to-bottom with shelves of records—over a million of them. While a lot of the records are expensive (many being rare and very collectable) this is the place to come if you've been searching for a particular album. Even if you're not interested in buying, one question to the friendly owner and you'll leave with a bunch of incredible stories and some excellent trivia about anybody from Coltrane to the Stones to a weird children's album from the '40s. If visiting on a Sunday, cross the street and wander through the flea market at Fairfax High School where you'll find vintage clothes, homewards, trinkets and Hollywood collectables. Also nearby on N Fairfax is Known Gallery, the iconic Canter's deli and (if you're a big-time carnivore) new-classic Animal—where the queues are long but more than worth the wait.
