Looking for a much-needed escape from the LA scene? Located a mere 10 minutes north of Downtown, Pasadena is like another world. If you’re not here for a game at the world-famous Rose Bowl Stadium or catching a show at the Pasadena Playhouse, then you’re probably visiting charming Old Town Pasadena with its upscale boutiques, pubs and cafes. What Pasadena lacks in a bustling cityscape it makes up for in a relaxed and charismatic getaway.
There is so much more to Los Angeles than meets the eye and more things to discover everyday! While I’ve missed a few spots (hey, this girl’s got a word count to surpass and ignore), all the more reason to explore and search for the new, up and coming spots LA has to offer. Did your ‘hood not make the list? Tell me what else I should add to this guide to Los Angeles Neighborhoods!

The Arts District is a game changer. Full of warehouses that were once former factories and industrial businesses that have now become live-work lofts and upscale condos, this hip and urban area is on its way up when it comes to real estate. But before you buy your Sex-In-The-City-style apartment, grab a drink at some of the coolest bars in the city and enjoy the hip art scene as this neighborhood is filled with graffiti and art galleries. You’ll be rubbing elbows with some serious artists and designers, so maybe their special somethin’ will rub off on you.
