Around Adams-Normandie

Because this region has such a small geographic footprint, there aren't tremendous amounts of places to live. The city's northern border is the Santa Monica Freeway, while Vermont Avenue, Jefferson Boulevard, and Western Avenue make up its remaining border. Many of the available apartments are located off of Normandie Avenue and are mid-sized apartment complexes. The architecture of these buildings harkens back to the 1960s and 1970s, and the style helps create the area's visual identity.

Casual dining is by far the most popular culinary scene in Adams-Normandie. Along Adams Boulevard, a variety of fast food restaurants can be found lining the streets, along with a mixture of Mexican and Salvadorian eateries. It's in these latter two options where the food really shines. Both provide customers with high-quality, authentic cuisine that won't break the budget. For those who like ceviche or seafood, El Salvadorian restaurants are an absolute must, while the Mexican locations serve up tasty tacos and ice-cold horchata that is an ideal way to beat the brutal summer heat.

The borders of Adams-Normandie are some of Los Angeles' most important and utilized thoroughfares, so expect to see plenty of traffic snarling through the streets. Those who quickly get annoyed by the traffic tend to try and find an alternate route through the neighborhood's side streets, so there are also plenty of cars passing through the residential areas during rush hour, which can cause more noise and traffic in these parts of the neighborhood.

For those who call this neighborhood home, Friday nights are often spent heading to L.A. Live in nearby downtown. L.A. Live is home to the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as a huge selection of restaurants, bars, and movie theaters that ensure no two Fridays are spent doing the same activities. If reliving your college years sounds like an appealing night out, the local campus bars around top-tier college USC can be great for having a beer and watching the game.

Being so close to the Santa Monica Freeway has its advantages. For instance, hopping on the freeway and heading to the beach on a Sunday morning is an absolute breeze. With little to no traffic, the Pacific Ocean is only minutes away, as is the Santa Monica Pier and its many rides and activities. Take a stroll down the Venice Boardwalk to observe some of the more interesting locals who call Los Angeles home.
