Local Reviews

It's a busy street but quiet neighborhood right behind the major street. Venice Blvd has a good selection of restaurants that is close enough to walk to. Pitfire is a good place to go to with family & friends.

Different cultures. Favorite eating places are right down the street. I like shipping and amusement parks

Close to stores and public transportation. The neighbors look out for one another. The houses are fairly clean and the lawns are manicured.

People are generally friendly. Shops and restaurants close by. Mar Vista Park is part of the neighborhood and there are sports and picnicking there.

i like the sense of community as well as the overall familiarity. Despite living on the westside of los angeles, which is a very busy, crowded urban environment that is rapidly continuing to develop, my neighborhood has the feeling of an atypical American suburb

I love that we can walk to restaurants and grocery stores and pharmacies. We can go all weekend without using our car.
