Fodor's Review

Highland Avenue marks the western perimeter of the neighborhood called Hancock Park (which is east of the park of the same name, home of LACMA and La Brea Tar Pits). In the 1920s, wealthy families came here to build English Tudor–style homes with East Coast landscaping that defied local climate and history. Today Hancock Park is a quiet, relatively suburban neighborhood whose residents frequently venture out to the Larchmont Village shopping district to grab a bite in comfy, neighborhood-y restaurants, take a yoga class and browse a collection of bookstores, clothing stores, antiques shops, and a Sunday farmers' market.
