Around Playa Vista

One of the major benefits of living in Playa Vista is the presence of beach culture without the crowds located in nearby Venice. Playa Vista retains a quiet, small town feel and much of that is due to the fact that the community has one of the lowest population densities in Los Angeles County. Large portions of the residences are modern, upscale apartment complexes located near the intersection of Lincoln Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard. The farther north one travels along Lincoln, the greater the prevalence single-family homes.

Playa Vista's nearness to the ocean means that it has a large variety of options when it comes to fresh seafood. If eating a meal freshly caught from the Pacific Ocean doesn't sound appetizing, there are plenty of locations to grab a great burger, a drink, and watch a ballgame or two. For those looking for higher-end fare, nearby Venice is home to some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles, and is only a short drive away.

Home to Loyola Marymount College, Playa Vista has its fair share of college students living in and around the community. While Playa Vista is not a college town in the traditional sense, the school provides the city with a youthful, hip vibe.

Friday nights in Playa Vista are often spent grabbing a drink and a bite to eat at one of the local watering holes. Many of the locals enjoy beginning their evening near their homes, and then taking a quick ride to adjacent Marina Del Rey or Venice. Playa Vista is a great neighborhood for movie lovers, as it boasts a hi-tech theater unlike almost any other venue in Los Angeles. Boasting reserved luxury seating, the option to order food and alcoholic beverages straight to your seat, and several massive screens in crystal clear high definition, the Cinemark is a can't-miss for anyone looking to spend their evening seeing the latest that Hollywood has to offer.

Sun is a constant companion in Southern California, and Sundays in Playa Vista are no different. That's why heading to the local beaches is such a favored pastime for those living in this part of Los Angeles. Regardless of the time of year, residents can enjoy a leisurely bike ride down Lincoln Boulevard or heading to the marina for some sailing.
