Where to Live
Only encompassing 2.39 square miles of land, San Fernando puts a premium on efficiently housing as many people as possible. A majority of housing revolves around small to medium-sized apartment complexes as opposed to the massive structures found in downtown Los Angeles. Many of these homes can be found along Maclay Street. Single-family homes can be found branching out from Maclay Street, but most people in the neighborhood live in apartment buildings. Running perpendicular between the 210 freeway and the 405 freeway, this strip also serves as the main artery through San Fernando.
Where to Eat
Although a relatively small neighborhood, San Fernando is home to a wide variety of culinary treats. Top Chef alums ply their trade at local eateries, serving beguiling dishes like Hamachi with citrus and fresh gourmet salads. For those looking for more casual options, hot and steamy bowls of ramen can be found in local restaurants. Filled with eggs, meat, and an assortment of vegetables, ramen bowls have become a favorite for people looking to try something new and enjoy some lovingly prepared comfort food. Options for sushi restaurants abound in San Fernando as well. Despite being landlocked compared to Los Angeles' coastal cities, San Fernando has created a name for itself with regards to providing customers with high-quality sushi and sashimi.
What You'll See
Due to San Fernando's location in the heart of The Valley, expect to see people moving through the city on their way to other parts of L.A. There can be immense amounts of traffic during peak rush hours, with density slowly declining during the middle portion of the day.
Friday Night Fun
The Valley is full of fun and interesting things to do on a Friday night, and San Fernando is no different. The city is home to several high-end movie theatres that have the perfect atmosphere to watch Hollywood's latest blockbusters. The local bars along San Fernando Road and Foothill Boulevard are where residents head to grab a few cocktails after work and catch the Los Angeles Dodgers playing a game or two. A quick trip down the 405 freeway opens up a world of possibilities, giving residents access to everything the rest of the region has to offer.
The Perfect Sunday
Head to nearby Pacoima to enjoy some authentic Sunday treats such as pozole, a traditional and hearty Mexican stew that's made with hominy, spices, and pork. It's perfect for recovering from the long night before, or simply for grabbing a delicious meal on a cold Sunday morning.
