Getting Around Highland Park
Around Highland Park
The larger, nicer homes are found south of York Boulevard in the center of the neighborhood, but be sure to explore the area. Many fall in love with Highland Park for the wonderful cafes, bars, and shops on York Boulevard, but that same vibrant atmosphere extends throughout the neighborhood. Downtown and southbound commuters might want to stay near Figueroa Street, which features beautiful vintage architecture and a tight-knit community. Those commuting west should look all along York Boulevard, where you will find a mix of smaller homes and condominiums.
Highland Park consistently makes waves across the Los Angeles restaurant scene with its focus on approachable and traditional cuisines that have been reimagined. Think eye-opening tacos inside of small grocery stores and vintage diners with vegan menus. Along York Boulevard you'll find patio brunch and late night hipster bar scenes. On Figueroa Street, delis and taco shops reign supreme.
Transplants tend to be clustered around the Highland Park and Eagle Rock border on York Boulevard, while the east side of town remains largely inhabited by longtime residents. However, this is a neighborhood that welcomes newcomers and embraces the changing times, as long as the local flavor is preserved. The boozy brunch scene brings parents and toddlers to the same haunts as the younger residents, while the art and music scene draws in visitors from all over town.
Events like art walks and live music festivals make most Friday nights feel like a unique adventure in Highland Park. Many businesses have a play room for the kids so families can spend a night out without hiring a babysitter. Highland Park offers a unique come-as-you-are atmosphere. Wear comfortable shoes, hit the streets, and crawl your way through the bars and artsy shops to feel connected with your neighbors.
Pamper yourself with a pitaya smoothie bowl or a fair-trade latte and start scouring the shops for your next great piece of vintage furniture or handmade decor. Fun events like dog adoptions or children's art lessons can be found around the neighborhood, advertised by hand-written signs. Enjoy the stroll and stop by a neighborhood institution like Galco's Soda Pop Stop and then head to the park or playground to relax until sunset.
