Where in LA can I find a relaxed neighborhood where I don't have to drive too much?
It's tough to live in LA without a car, but if you want an area where you can forget about your car for the weekend, try an apartment near the beach in Santa Monica or Venice Beach. Stow a beach cruiser bike in your apartment and you can go all weekend without getting in a car, with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shopping nearby.
I'm a college student moving into the Westwood area, where is the local nightlife?
Living in the Westwood neighborhood in Los Angeles as a college student is a guaranteed good time out. With UCLA, USC and SMC within driving distance of your apartment, college frat, sorority and sporting events are definitely in your future. If these things do not appeal to you, take a stab at Jerry’s Famous Deli for late night eats with the stars, Ohara’s where everyone will know your name or the Hollywood bowl for some of the best concerts in SoCal.
Where can I find a nice two bedroom apartment for low rent in Los Angeles?
You can find the perfect Los Angeles apartment by using the filters on the search page to set the number of bedrooms and maximum rent. You can also search apartments by neighborhood by entering the neighborhood in the search box. Happy apartment hunting!
where is in LA can I find a relaxed neighborhood and near of nightlife locals?
While it is hard to define “local nightlife” in a city and county as large as Los Angles, my recommendation is based on locality that highlights the best attributes of L.A…The weather of course. Griffith Park/Los Feliz has the perfect mixture of karaoke, dive, lounges, and sports bars that are tailored within easy walking distance to the residence that reside there.
Is there any eco friendly rentals?
Eco friendly apartments in Los Angeles is a difficult standard by which to judge and you'd have to check with apartments individually to find out what kind of gray water or green roof types of features that their buildings incorporate.
What would an ideal weekend be like in Los Angeles?
With so much to do in Los Angeles, it's hard to pin down an ideal weekend. Outdoor lovers can begin their weekend with a trip to the sprawling Griffith Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world, and then head to the Venice Beach Boardwalk for some excellent shopping and dining. After some people watching on the boardwalk, head to one of LA's many museums, like the Natural History Museum, the J. Paul Getty Museum, or Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. Top off your perfect Los Angeles weekend with a relaxing trip to the San Antonio Winery.
Does Los Angeles have a downtown area where a lot of people walk around?
The area that is known as Downtown LA is the central business district of Los Angeles. However, it is also home to the city's Grand Avenue cultural corridor. Although the neighborhood had deteriorated somewhat after the advent of the automobile and freeways, the area has turned itself around drastically in recent years, in part due to new buildings, bars, hotels, shops, and restaurants sprouting up across the neighborhood. Located in Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, of course, is one of the most famous--albeit expensive--shopping destinations in the world.
Are there museums in Los Angeles or nearby?
Yes. In fact, Los Angeles has more museums per capita than any other city in the world. Some of the city's art museums are among the most notable. These include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Getty Center, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition, Gallery Row is home to a plethora of art galleries, which draws thousands during the monthly Downtown Art Walk. Other museums include the California Science Center, the Museum of Neon Art, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and the Hollywood Wax Museum.
Are there local sporting events in Los Angeles?
Yes, there are quite a few local sporting events in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is home to several professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League, the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, and the Los Angeles Sparks of the Women's National Basketball Association. For Major League Soccer, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Club Deportivo Chivas USA are based in nearby Carson, California. In addition, the week-long US Open of Surfing takes place every summer in nearby Huntington Beach, California.
any eco friendly apartments?
That's a great question, but we have no good way to really search for that mainly because we haven't found many apartments who describe themselves or advertise themselves as being eco friendly or green. We have many articles on our blog about living green in an apartment, but we'd recommend looking at apartments that allow you to walk or bike rather than drive and have recycling and composting programs. You can inquire further to see if buildings have grey water systems or a green roof or use eco friendly paint, carpet, etc.
