Pacific Palisades —
The Los Angeles community just north of the city of Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades is the “Beverly Hills” of the beach, offering a wide range of properties and some of the most spectacular estates and ocean views in the city of Los Angeles on streets meandering through the hills and canyons.
Known for its good public schools and ‘small town’ feel (always good for a romantic after dinner stroll in the Palisades Village), “The Palisades”, as it is known by locals, is popular for successful families wanting the winning combination of beaches, small-town vibe, and good community services while still within the city of Los Angeles.
And although the Palisades are slightly removed from the busy urban activities of neighboring communities, Santa Monica, and bustling Venice’s nightlife are just a few minutes down the hill. The Palisades abuts Topanga State Park which makes for inspirational trekking and jaw-dropping views just minutes from your city home, one of the many amazing luxuries of living in Los Angeles.
