Getting Around Playa Del Rey

Around Playa Del Rey

Playa Del Rey is a community that is clustered around its famous beach. Many residents choose to live close to the beach, but it is harder to find parking and traffic is worse the closer one gets to the beach. Where to live depends mostly upon how badly you want to visit the beach; if it’s a very high priority and you don’t mind the traffic, living closer to it is a better choice. If not, you might want to avoid the hassle and live farther out. Most of the condominium options are nestled along Manchester and Gulana Avenues with the rest of Playa Del Rey overwhelmingly single family.

Playa Del Rey has plenty of culinary options for residents, especially along Culver Boulevard near the beach. Indian, Middle Eastern, and Mexican restaurants are concentrated on Perhsing Drive. For old-school, no-fuss Italian, Cantalini's Salerno Beach Restaurant has been serving up area residents since the 1960s. It's not all classic cuisine though: Playa Del Rey has become an increasingly popular location for the city's most innovative chefs.

Playa Del Rey is a very dynamic community. You might see college students running off to class or postgraduate students grabbing coffee as often as you'll see families with strollers. Playa Del Rey also has more established residents who are drawn to the area's proximity to the beach.
