If you plan on hitting the west coast for a coastal tour or especially if you are spending any time in one of LA’s vacation rentals, spend a day cruising around Highland Park. Not too long ago this area was teaming with dollar stores and auto shops, but in recent years it has undergone a makeover and has become a new popular district filled with rich culture. Today this district is busy with a trendy crowd occupying the bars, restaurants, boutiques and even apartments.
The area has really cleaned up its act and its streets to become a positive addition to both the locals and visitors of LA’s accommodations. The area has been known for a few reasons before the renovation. It was the location of Quenton Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs”, it was the first town to be annexed by Los Angeles, and also has been famed for its old Victorian style homes which have become quite desirable in recent years. With a lively nightlife scene and a busy lunch and happy hour, there really isn’t a bad time to check out Highland Park during your west coast vacation.
