“Where the mountains meet the sea,” as the saying goes of the Pacific Palisades. For nearly a century, talented artists and intellectuals have been drawn to this scenic coastal community. It is a primarily residential area made up of large and luxurious estates and other smaller, historically significant homes. There is a charming and vibrant business district located along Sunset Boulevard that locals refer to as “The Village” because of its quaint and classic quality with locally owned and unique markets, shops, and boutiques – which contribute to the small town feel of this affluent community. The Palisades is divided into several neighborhoods including the Huntington Palisades, the Alphabet Streets, and the Riviera neighborhood which is home to the prestigious Riviera Country Club and streets lined with large extravagant estates. The Pacific Palisades is arguably one of the most beautiful areas of Los Angeles. The vistas from the hills and bluffs of the Palisades are nearly unequalled and the mountains harbor some of the city’s best hiking and recreational trails, including Will Rogers State Park, Temescal Canyon and Santa Ynez Canyon Park. The iconic television program Baywatch was filmed on the picturesque beaches of Will Rodgers State Beach, which is along the Pacific Palisades coastline. Access to other fashionable areas of Los Angeles, like Brentwood, Beverly Hills, the Sunset Strip and Hollywood are all just minutes away down the world famous Sunset Boulevard.
