For everything I dislike about Los Angeles, Los Feliz makes up for nearly all of it. It is an eclectic village in L.A. nestled below the Griffith Observatory and comes replete with its own Farmer’s Market, amazing bars, bohemian cafes, popping restaurants and hiking trails right out your back door. Better yet, this delightful area can all be explored on foot. It is considered the ‘other’ Beverly Hills and many A-listers choose to live here away from the madness of West Los Angeles. This is where I lived during my time in L.A. and I feel a great nostalgia for it even now. Los Feliz is far enough away from the tourist traps of Hollywood while providing a chic setting to truly enjoy all the jazz that Los Angeles has to provide.
