Neighborhoods to Explore

LA is made up of several unique neighborhoods that each have their own different characteristics. Make sure to check them out the next time you visit! Here are a few of our favorites:

1. Arts District

This gem of a gentrified area was originally home to struggling artists and innovators, and now the landing point for art galleries, museums, high end eateries, and boutique shops.

2. West Hollywood

Locally-known as WeHo, a fun and very liberal part of town that is especially known for its all-night entertainment. Anything goes in West Hollywood.

3. Santa Monica

This iconic beach city is a recreational and entertainment center featuring restaurants, stores and an amusement park.

4. Silver Lake

Hang out with the indie crowd in Silver Lake. You can find some of LA’s best coffee here. There are enough shops, bars and eateries to keep you eating for days.
