Pacific Palisades is a polished, coastal, quiet residential area with large private homes, spectacular ocean views, and ample amounts of park space and hiking trails. Its quaint “downtown” area, known as The Village, is home to restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques. Frequent neighborhood-sponsored events foster a true feeling of community among residents.
Pacific Palisades is one of LA’s best-kept secrets. It offers the ocean views, beach access, and impressive outdoor opportunities of neighboring Santa Monica and Malibu, but attracts fewer tourists. A weekly farmer’s market and hyperlocal dining and retail add to its small-town feel. The neighborhood is also home to the stunning Getty Villa, the second outpost of the J. Paul Getty Museum, which features Roman-inspired architecture and gardens.
Pacific Palisades’ fitness-forward residents make great use of the ample park space and beautiful beaches, and spend weekends patronizing high-end neighborhood restaurants and shops.
Invest in a good pair of running shoes and take in the ocean views from one of the neighborhood’s many footpaths, like those at Will Rogers State Historic Park.
Residents pay top dollar to inhabit this seaside hamlet, enjoying the breaktaking views as well as the sense of safety and quiet Pacific Palisades affords.
This coastal neighborhood offers plentiful outdoor space, but Palisades Park is the largest—117 acres—and most accessible communal area. Within walking distance of the Village and set atop bluffs that provides perfect sunset views, it boasts baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and a hockey rink in addition to its many trails, lawns, and playgrounds.
