About Lake View Terrace

Lake View Terrace is a relatively small community when compared to its neighboring territories in the Valley. Occupying only 4.23 square miles of land, this Los Angeles suburb is known for being one of the most diverse areas in the region while also having some of the lowest population density in all of L.A. What this means is that Lake View Terrace, while located in the middle of a sprawling metropolis, feels as if it's a world apart. The lower population combined with the lush foliage make the community feel much smaller than it actually is.

Around Lake View Terrace

One of the most appealing aspects of Lake View Terrace is that it is, in essence, a tale of two cities: suburban and equestrian. It remains one of the few places within Los Angeles that has homes zoned to allow residents to own and maintain horses on their property. The western portion of the neighborhood contains large, single-family homes with ample lot sizes that are made to accommodate horses and their stables. Situated against the Angeles National Forest, this area lends itself to the semirural lifestyle enjoyed by residents. Houses on the northeast, however, are often more upscale and modern, providing two separate environments for those who choose to make Lake View Terrace home.

As a result of its laid back, rural lifestyle and largely residential zoning, much of the culinary scene in Lake View Terrace revolves around casual dining. However, just because these restaurants don't require formal attire doesn't mean they aren't exceptional. Mexican food is a popular cuisine among residents, which reflection the city's rich heritage. There are also several places that are ideal for grabbing high-quality burgers with locally brewed craft beers.

Don't be alarmed to find horses and their riders roaming through the neighborhood during the day. The equestrian lifestyle is a major draw in Lake View Terrace, and those fortunate enough to own a horse or two often enjoy having the space and convenience of riding them throughout the area.

The city itself is largely homes and ranches, but there are still plenty of things to do on a Friday night. A trip to the local movie theatre to catch the latest Hollywood blockbuster is a favorite pastime as well as heading to one of the nearby watering holes for drinks and appetizers within a casual setting.

Few things will match the joy of taking a Sunday horse ride along a trail in the Angeles National Forest. Lake View Terrace's location means it's one of the few places that can truly make you forget that you're in the city of Los Angeles, and instead make you believe as if you've been transported to another time and place entirely.
