Head east on Interstate 10 out of Santa Monica for just a few minutes and you will run into the quaint community of Culver City. Many Southern California residents have already discovered that Culver City apartments for rent are a great option for people looking for a tight-knit community in the heart of Los Angeles County. Conveniently located near many interstates and highways, Culver City is a popular neighborhood for commuters who want to work in downtown L.A. but still want to have all the small-town amenities that make this great community so special.
Most of Southern California's history is steeped in Spanish colonization after conquistadores settled in the area during the 1500s. However, the area of Culver City remained a quiet farming and ranching area until the early 1900s, when the burgeoning film industry began to take off in the L.A. area. Known as the "Heart of Screenland," this area has not only been a popular destination for many film locations, it is also home to many successful motion picture recording studios and historical theaters. Even though the entire Los Angeles area has exploded with business growth over the 20th and 21st centuries, Culver City has remained a small community of nearly 39,000 residents, according to information from the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau.
Culver City is home to many annual events, some of the most popular being the Fiesta La Ballona held annually with free admission for Culver City residents. Honoring the Spanish and Native American culture in the area, the event has plenty of heritage-themed events, live music on two stages, a beer and wine garden and food court serving some of the best in Latin American cuisine.
