I've lived in Los Angeles for 15 years, and there are times that I simply need to go to Hancock Park--a beautiful old-money residential neighborhood. LA can get so congested, and stressful, and this neighborhood offers needed relief. The streets are wide, and tree-lined, and generally empty. Go with your loved one, or by yourself, and marvel at the beautiful... More

Hancock Park area is primarily made up of large old time Money homes of LA, before the Westside eclipsed it eventually. Drive the streets and enjoy seeing huge homes and yards, set back nicely.

I have never owned a home here, was lucky enough to housesit here for a summer, and am lucky enough to have friends who live here. Beautiful homes and wide empty streets. Sadly the only people one sees enjoying it are nannies.

Home to what is now the La Brea tar pits. Also the site of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Page Museum. The tar pits are a must see if in the area. The day we went they were trying to get dogs placed in homes. Also, the movie Volcano with Tommy Lee Jones was filmed here.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
