A Los Angeles treasure, located where the mountains meet the sea
Pacific Palisades is an idyllic community in the Westside region of Los Angeles, with roots that date back just over 100 years. Over the course of its history, the Palisades has been many things to many people, but today, one can find a mix of celebrities, families and empty-nesters, living in a space referred to as where the mountains meet the sea.
The Palisades is divided into distinct neighborhoods, including the Alphabet Streets, El Medio Bluffs, The Riviera, The Huntington, Santa Monica Canyon, Rustic Canyon, Marquez Knolls, The Highlands and more—each with its own unique offerings and styles of real estate.
For those looking for the most sprawling of estates, check out The Riviera first, home to big names in Hollywood like Ben Affleck, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks—and big homes. For a more modest lot, packed with just as much beauty and comfort, the Alphabet Streets, Marquez Knolls and The Huntington are best known for family-friendly living, with most residences just a few minutes’ walk from downtown hubs.
The Highlands boasts sweeping views of the Santa Monica Mountains and beyond, while Rustic and Santa Monica canyons, spread out over winding roads south of Sunset, put residents closer to the beach.
There is no shortage when it comes to the range of homes available for sale in the Palisades, stretching from tens of millions to more modestly priced.
Those who reside in or visit the Palisades often comment on how it reminds them of the real-life Mayberry or New England—truly creating a small-town feel in the midst of the big city of Los Angeles.
The downtown area of the Palisades, referred to as the Village, is home to a mix of mom-and-pop shops, as well as Caruso’s Palisades Village, which opened in 2018. Within the area, there are dining and shopping options, from Italian to Mexican to a cup of frozen yogurt.
Palisades Village offers a few dozen high-end retailers, mixed with desirable dining, like Porta Via Palisades, The Draycott, Blue Ribbon Sushi and Hank’s. Outside the development, one can sample sushi and drinks at Pearl Dragon, or grab a cup of coffee from Caffe Luxxe.
Largely a residential community, tourists typically will only visit the town to see places like Gladstones, local beaches, the Getty Villa, Palisades Village or Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine. The neighborhood has the best of both worlds—with countless small businesses to shop at and support, mixed with high-end brands centered in and around Palisades Village.
Annual traditions are part of what makes the Palisades so special. From the Fourth of July parade, concert and race, to the town naming a celebrity “honorary mayor,” community is always at the heart of the Palisades.
Take a Hike
One of the biggest draws of the Palisades are its many hiking trails, which start easy for beginners and climb to much more challenging for the advanced. These include Los Liones Canyon Trailhead and Temescal Gateway Park.
Other outdoor options the Palisades also offers are beaches, including Will Rogers State Beach, Will Rogers State Historic Park for polo and exploring, and parks, like Temescal Canyon and Palisades Recreation Center.
