Getting Around Vermont Square

Around Vermont Square

If living in Vermont Square, expect to see large groups of children out and about. The median age of residents is 26 years old and the total number of children ages ten and younger is some of the highest in the county. It's not an unusual sight to see children riding bikes, skateboarding, and simply enjoying themselves outdoors.

A day at one of Vermont Square's parks is a favorite pastime among local residents. They can be seen grilling up a BBQ feast or simply lounging in the sun. Hopping on the nearby 110 freeway and taking a trip to Long Beach's famous Aquarium of the Pacific is also a great way to spend a Sunday.

In order to house Vermont Square's dense population, there are a large number of apartment complexes located throughout the city. Most of these are in the mid-century style that is common in the area and contain less than 20 units. Along Normandie Avenue, there are plenty of single- family homes. These homes can vary in square footage and in number of bedrooms, but they are known for their interesting and distinct architectural styles.

For a Friday night in Vermont Square, there are several great restaurants that are perfect for a casual date. Many of the local Mexican restaurants have specialty cocktails and happy hour specials for those not looking to spend their entire paycheck. There are also a variety of music venues that host up-and-coming acts as well as clubs to dance the night away.

Vermont Square is a highly diverse neighborhood, and as a result it is home to an equally eclectic culinary scene. It's not unusually to see BBQ joints serving fall-off-the-bone tender brisket next to Peruvian restaurants with some of the freshest ceviche in the city. Casual dining is the order of the day and those who are looking for upscale fare would be better served driving north towards Hollywood. However, those who stay in Vermont Square are sure to find themselves satisfied with the variety of culinary options available in the area.
