Nestled in the canyons and hills of the eastern Santa Monica Mountains, the Hollywood Hills has long provided a peaceful refuge for residents. Meandering quiet streets are dotted with beautiful mansions and gorgeous gardens, many secreted behind high walls while modernistic dwellings cling to the hillside or are set closer to the curb where friendly neighbors walk their dogs before and after work. Convenient to both Hollywood and downtown, this is a mixed community of mostly urban professionals and the entertainment industry's A-listers. The area presents stunning views of the city below. As the sun sets, the hills become magical as lights switch on to illuminate the unique neighborhood. Home to the Hollywood Reservoir, the Hollywood Sign, the Hollywood Bowl and the John Anson Ford Theater, an interesting blend of bars, restaurants, coffee shops and parks cater to both residents and tourists. Great shopping can be had at The Grove and Farmer's Market in Fairfax, Santa Monica Blvd., Sunset Blvd., Universal CityWalk, the Beverly Center and Ventura Blvd.
