Around Porter Ranch

One of the most appealing aspects of Porter Ranch is that it is a relatively new and upscale community. The most predominant architecture are the tract homes that are popular in many Southern California suburbs. These properties can range from two to four bedrooms, often with ample lots and moderately sized backyards. Due to Porter Ranch's small size, many of these can be found along two major roads: Tampa Avenue and Reseda Boulevard. There are some condominium options that can be found around the freeway along Rinaldi Street and Tampa Avenue.

Porter Ranch enjoys a wide variety of dining options, especially at the intersection of Reseda Boulevard and Devonshire Street. Casual dining is plentiful along Rinaldi and Chatsworth Streets and offers an array of cuisines that range from Japanese to pizzerias to Indian. Those who want high-end options will normally travel to one of the surrounding neighborhoods.

The landscape in Porter Ranch is dotted with strip malls and shopping centers, punctuated by the occasional housing tract. Porter Ranch Park, which is on the northwest side of the neighborhood, has basketball courts, a pool, and baseball diamond. Health enthusiasts also have Porter Ridge Park and Limekiln Canyon Trail at their disposal.

Although Porter Ranch is not necessarily known for its nightlife, residents still have a few options for a fun Friday night. Enjoy a cocktail at the Porter Valley Country Club while enjoying views of the surrounding golf course. Devonshire Street also has an abundance of restaurants and even a gastropub for a low-key night with friends. Going to the movies is a favorite pastime of the locals, and there are several great theatres that are fun for the whole family.

Taking a short trip to the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park for a day of hiking is a great way to spend some time out in the Los Angeles sun. In nearby Northridge, the Fashion Center is home to world-class shopping and dining that equals some of the other Los Angeles communities farther south. If you need to spend a day fixing up the house or simply getting chores done, the local Walmart is always busy.
