Historically significant, beautifully situated, and delightfully hipster — have you been to Highland Park recently? With trendy shops, scenic views of the surrounding hills, great restaurants, old school community feel, and a vibrant artist community, Highland Park should be on your radar. But let’s be honest, you’re reading this because you’re looking for a HOUSE, in addition to a great neighborhood. This little burg along the 110 freeway is known for their well-preserved, historic Craftsman homes. Victorian homes all over the neighborhood have been restored and brightened over the last decade, and are begging to be appreciated.
So what do you do out there in Highland Park? How about shop at the original Forever 21, established in 1984. Or you can enjoy a blast from the past a Galco’s Soda Pop Stop. Highland Park’s name isn’t as misinforming as other neighborhoods in Los Angeles, because it actually has beautiful parks, like the Arroyo Seco Park and the Ernest E. Debs Regional Park. They have a wonderful farmer’s’ market, and they’re more centrally located then you might think. The Gold Line runs to Highland Park, they’re adjacent to main vein freeways like the 110, the 2, the 5, and the 134, and close to towns like Pasadena, Eagle Rock, Glendale, and Atwater Village. If you work downtown, you’re one straight shot down the 110.
Maybe you’re a workout junkie? With Namaste on York and Kinship on Figueroa for your yoga fix, Pop Physique for a fun studio class, or Highland Park Crossfit to get your lifting on, you’ll never run out of stuff to do for exercise.
