Vermont Knolls is a community filled with various home designs.
Where to Live
Shaped like a square, Vermont Knolls covers only 1.14 square miles of land, yet boasts a total of more than 18,000 residents. As a result, the neighborhood has one of the highest population densities in all of Los Angeles. The neighborhood itself is divided from north to south by South Vermont Avenue, splitting it in half. Single-family homes are very common here, and many of them can be found in the Vermont Knolls' western portion. West 81st Street forms a complete oval, with South New Hampshire to the east and South Mariposa Avenue to the west. These single-family homes ring the outer portion of the oval, creating the feel of a distinct community within the neighborhood at large. Apartments are also popular among residents, as over 72% of those who live here choose to rent instead of own their property.
Where to Eat
Casual dining is very popular in Vermont Knolls. It's not unusual to see the signage of fast food restaurants dotting the skyline, and many of these locations are open all night, which makes them excellent for night owls looking for a late-night bite. Vermont Knolls also boasts excellent Latino cuisine options. Freshly made tacos of al pastor are served hot off the spit, which are common fare in the area. Other staples like burritos and corn tamales are also easily found. Swing by a Mexican restaurant on for pozole, a hearty stew dish that is often only served on the weekends.
What You'll See
Traffic is a scourge that all those who live in Los Angeles must deal with, and it's no different in Vermont Knolls. Having the 110 Harbor Freeway serve as the city's eastern boarder provides excellent access to other regions of Los Angeles, but it also ensures that the streets of this area grind to a halt during rush hour. As commuters become more and more frustrated with traffic on the 110, they will often seek alternate paths through the surrounding neighborhood roads, which causes massive gridlock in both Vermont Knolls and in other areas. Plan your commute around these times if you want to minimize your frustration.
Friday Night Fun
There's nothing quite like grabbing an ice cold cocktail after a long day at work, and Vermont Knolls is home to a few local bars to help you unwind. Stop by and grab a drink and relax at one of the bars located on Manchester Avenue or Florence Avenue. If you want to escape your surroundings, a quick drive up the 110 will get you to Downtown Los Angeles, where you'll find a whole wealth of evening options. The Staples Center hosts games for both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Kings during different times of the year. L.A. Live is also home to several world-class movie theatres and music venues.
The Perfect Sunday
Take a short drive to Long Beach and enjoy a day spent out on the water. Boat rentals as well as a high-tech aquarium are sure to please any fans of the ocean. At the nearby Los Angeles Coliseum, the newly arrived L.A. Rams can be found. The NFL's debut season in L.A. already has residents talking, and is a great way to spend a day out in the sun.
Easy access to the freeway.
