LA Neighborhood Spotlight: Silver Lake
Posted by by Maria Aoki on November 23, 2022 in California, Los Angeles, Things to do in LA, Visit LA
Ready to discover what LA has to offer? Check out one of our favorite neighborhoods in LA: Silver Lake.
Bordered by Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Echo Park, and the LA River, Silver Lake is about as central to the action as you can get. From here you are less than a 30 minute drive from DTLA, Griffith Park, or the infamous Hollywood sign. And you won't run out of things to see or do; with its growing popularity, Silver Lake is as much a destination for locals as it is for tourists.
Silver Lake has a reputation as a hipster haven, and for good reason. Here you'll find up and coming restaurants, trendy boutiques, and independently-owned coffee shops. A walk through Sunset Junction will provide endless people watching. Grab a coffee and pull up a seat outside of Intelligentsia. Shop the perfect LA-vibes caftan or knitwear at Midland. Need an energy boost? Why not try the $17 blue cloud smoothie from Erewhon Market that went viral on tik tok.
Below you'll find our list of notable attractions, shops, and restaurants to check out while you're there.
