Getting Around Florence

Around Florence

When looking for a place to live in Florence, some people will want to avoid the West side of the neighborhood due to the proximity of the 110 freeway, which is very busy, noisy, and yields a lot of pollution on a daily basis. The area differs street by street.

When it comes to the culinary scene in Florence, there aren't a vast number of options, but good restaurants can be found. In Florence you will mostly find BBQ, Southern cooking, Mexican food, and Soul food, all of which are well-reviewed and locally known as some of the go-to joints in the area. However, Florence lacks a lot of variety when it comes to food options, so for anything beyond the aforementioned categories, you will have to travel outside of the neighborhood.

You can expect to see homes that have been somewhat neglected over the past few decades. However, the neighborhood residents are hard-working, blue collar Angelenos who love their neighborhood and go about their lives as anyone in a more well-to-do Los Angeles neighborhood would.

A Friday night in Florence is undoubtedly active, as many of the locals in the neighborhood will be throwing parties or visiting various bars or restaurants to blow off steam after a long week. These evenings can get relatively rowdy. That said, if you know the neighborhood, you can have a great time in Florence on a Friday night.

The perfect Sunday would probably include a brunch at one of the aforementioned soul food restaurants, which will most likely be hosting a hungry church crowd who has just gotten out after a morning of worship. Families will have to drive outside the neighborhood to find a park.
