Getting Around University Park

Around University Park

Although largely a college community, University Park has a wide range of apartments and homes that are sure to meet any personality or budget.  The area around Figueroa and Exposition Boulevard is made up mostly of townhouses and apartment buildings with fewer than 12 units. Most of these apartment complexes are one or two bedrooms, and are often occupied by students. For those looking for homes, traveling down Figueroa towards Normandy is a great place to start. The farther you move away from campus, the more two-bedroom and three-bedroom homes begin to appear.

University Park is a great place to enjoy some casual dining before a night out. The influence of college life on the surrounding neighborhood means that there is an abundance of food at relatively inexpensive prices. Many of the bars serve excellent comfort food, and it's not unusual to find great burgers and cocktails during happy hour. This neighborhood is also home to some of Los Angeles' best Mexican food, and hot dog carts are a popular post-USC football game meal for fans and locals alike.

Lots of fans enjoy coming out to support the local USC Trojan football team, so the surrounding neighborhood is flooded with fans and and tourists on Saturdays during football season. Since University Park is essentially a college neighborhood, the community is full of college students and faculty alike.

There is no lack of things to do in University Park, with several bars located on Figueroa and 29th street. These local watering holes are favorite haunts of the local college students, and are excellent for watching sports while grabbing some dinner before the long night ahead. Downtown Los Angeles and L.A. Live are a quick trip down the road, and the various bars and restaurants always provide something new and exciting to explore.

Head downtown to explore the newly renovated Grand Central Market. Home to pasta bars, critically acclaimed brunch restaurants, and a produce market, Grand Central Market is perfect for a daytime date or to simply see some of L.A.'s historic downtown. If a day spent seeing historical artifacts sounds interesting, the Los Angeles Natural History Museum has several world-class exhibits, including a full-scale Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton.
