Around Encino

One of the most appealing aspects of Encino is that it has housing for almost any income or budget. Much of the current population of Encino is highly educated and attracts younger buyers, meaning that those beginning their careers are common occupants of the condominiums that line Ventura Boulevard and White Oak Avenue. South of Ventura Boulevard is where all the larger estates are located. It's not unusual to find large, four or five bedroom homes on large lots situated in this region.

Although much of Encino is residential, there are still plenty of places to eat along Ventura Boulevard and in the surrounding areas. Ventura is home to an amazing array of high-quality sushi restaurants and steakhouses. Like its neighboring Los Angeles neighborhoods, Encino is also home to excellent Mexican food, with hole-in-the wall taco stands and upscale cantinas being common sights.

Encino has a relatively young population when compared to the surrounding areas, so expect to see crowds of young professionals and families out and about. The neighborhood itself isn’t overly crowded, giving it a friendlier and calmer vibe than many areas in greater Los Angeles. Plenty of boutique shops can be found along Balboa and Ventura Boulevards, with the more popular restaurants filling up early on the weekends.

Traveling through the various bars on Ventura Boulevard is a popular pastime for both locals and those visiting from other parts of L.A. Encino has also experienced the craft beer renaissance and many bars have a large selection of beers and wines that are sure to please even the most discerning palate.

A day spent bowling or visiting one of the arcades along Ventura Boulevard is very popular with the younger residents of Encino. A short trip south along Interstate 405 will bring you to the famous Getty Museum. Filled with priceless artifacts and an ever revolving group of exhibits, the open lawns and breathtaking architecture of the Getty is perfect for leisurely picnics on a cheery Southern California afternoon.
