Quintessential L.A. - Find Your Neighborhood
What do you think of when you picture Los Angeles? For many, a Los Angeles neighborhood like Beverly Hills or Bel Air comes to mind. These neighborhoods boast the classic luxury and glamour showcased on TV and in movies for decades. Affluence in the area keeps everything clean, safe, and beautiful, with high end shopping and gourmet dining in no short supply, as well as classic landmarks like Rodeo Drive. Maybe you think of a more urban vibe, which you will find in downtown Los Angeles; even downtown Los Angeles is broken up into multiple communities.
For a hipster vibe, with a good mix of history and fun, Echo Park is a classic Los Angeles neighborhood that draws tourists and locals alike. Chinatown is a great example of a Los Angeles neighborhood with a unique personality. Filled with Chinese art, restaurants, and shopping, you’re sure to find something new to enjoy. One of the more expansive Los Angeles neighborhoods is Culver City, where Metro Goldwyn Mayer called home. Filled with history of the movie industry, and recent updating, there’s lots to see and do.
For a less tourist-attracting atmosphere, Northeast L.A., Highland Park, and Eagle Rock are all great neighborhoods to enjoy eclectic shops, cultural diversity, and some of the richest history in the city. On the other end of the tourist-drawing spectrum are Hollywood, East Hollywood and West Hollywood, where people come from around the world to see the epicenter of filmmaking and trend setting; in many ways, Hollywood is far more than a neighborhood, but an entire culture. The three all have their own distinct personalities, with Hollywood known for its movie industry and celebrity culture, West Hollywood driving LGBTQ culture and activism, and East Hollywood somewhere between the two.
One of the best characteristics of Los Angeles is the many facets of its personality. No matter what you like, there’s an excellent chance Los Angeles has it to offer.
