Around Hollywood Hills

The 101 freeway cuts through the Hollywood Hills neighborhood at the Cahuenga Pass, which creates an area that isn't ideal to live in. Otherwise, the east or western portions of the Hollywood Hills has tons of amazing homes on winding, somewhat perilous streets with limited parking. Just at the bottom of the hill is Franklin Avenue, which is the place that residents choose to visit when they descend from their perfectly perched homes. Just keep in mind, anything you want to do outside of your home means you have to go to the bottom of the hill first, which can take time for mundane tasks.

The culinary scene within the Hollywood Hills is limited to a few areas. There are rich commercial areas on the streets of Franklin Avenue and along the borders of Hollywood Boulevard to the southwest, and Cahuenga Boulevard in the northern section of the Hollywood Hills, facing the Valley. There are numerous top-notch restaurants and cafes serving different types of food ranging from the sweet to the savory. You'll find options like Italian cuisine, traditional American fare, cold pressed juices, sandwich shops, gourmet food stores, baked goods, and French-inspired items throughout this distinct neighborhood.

You can expect to see all types of people living in the Hollywood Hills, but the vast majority of people are wealthy residents, celebrities who may or may not be famous, artists, musicians, hipsters, or movie executives. You wont' find too many families with children in this neighborhood, as the majority of residents are working professionals and career-oriented individuals.

A Friday night in the Hollywood Hills can either be shockingly quiet or incredibly lively, depending on the day or event. The neighborhood takes advantage of its location due to the mountains, which provide residents with plenty of privacy and seclusion from the bustling city vibe. But you can also check out some of the house parties going on within the neighborhood for an entertaining Friday night. Many of the commercial streets bordering the Hollywood Hills like Franklin Avenue will usually be active with events, bars, comedy clubs, and other entertainment acts on Friday nights.

A perfect Sunday in the Hollywood Hills entails relaxing in the quiet of the natural surroundings, be it by the pool in your own backyard or terrace or just in nature. Depending on where you live in the neighborhood, there are some amazing hiking trails that meander through the area and lead you into Griffith Park, which is perfect for leisurely strolls or an invigorating run to add into your exercise routing. Reaching the top of the hills provides, not only some fresh air, but also spectacular views of the city and mountains, and you may even catch the famous Hollywood sign in the distance.
