Homes for Sale
The community of Boyle Heights features an array of home designs and prices to match a variety of price points.
Where to Live
A place to stay in Boyle Heights is pretty affordable. You can find a nice two-bedroom home for a lot less than other neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Homes are more spacious and won't make you feel as cramped as other downtown neighborhoods. Boyle Heights dosen't get pricey until you want to have a backyard.
Where to Eat
Go east across the river and immerse yourself in Mexican cuisine. There's a lot of authentic Mexican restaurants in LA but if you want a lot of choices then Boyle Heights is your culinary destination. Boyle Heights boasts the highest concentration of authentic, affordable, and satisfying Mexican food anywhere. Just head straight to Mariachi Plaza. Restaurants such as Al and Bea's serve delicious dishes like burritos with creamy refried beans and shredded cheddar cheese, gussied up with a thin red salsa that packs a surprising amount of heat. The restaurant is small but has been faithfully serving the community for four decades. Another highlight of the neighborhood is the many panaderias (bakeries) that offer sweet Mexican bread like conchitas and other baked treats.
What You'll See
You can bank on seeing a lowrider car or two. You'll probably see plenty of landmarks in the area like the city's viaducts, which were filmed in many movies. You'll also see the fence that is one of the most overt signs of gentrification in all of LA. Graffiti is a big part of LA culture where you will see the Estrada Court murals that showcase work from local artists. If you're lucky you might run into a mariachi, which are strolling musicians playing beautiful Spanish music.
Friday Night Fun
Boyle Heights has some great dive bars. Although they may have a slightly different vibe than their downtown counterparts, the locals treat you like you're part of the club. A few bars feature mostly local music but also have a welcoming atmosphere that is more friendly to newcomers. A barhopper can have a bit of fun on the First Street corridor and explore different bars in one night.
The Perfect Sunday
One of the local recreation centers in Boyle Heights provides a great space for a nice afternoon. Hollenbeck Park has scenic views and gives a bit of a reprieve from the fast pace of the neighborhood. Take a stroll to sightsee the old Sears Building, Olympic Boulevard, and Soto Street. The neighborhood boasts quite a variety of small Mexican shops that can keep you busy while trying to explore them all.
