My neighborhood guide to Los Angeles (mostly) east of the 101


Urban sprawl is like the MSG that seasons Los Angeles: it’s so bad, yet oh-so-good. What I mean is because LA is so geographically expansive, there’s an ever refreshed list of places to see, taste, and explore across all corners of neighborhoods falling within the designation of “LA County”. I live in the tiny corner of Silver Lake, but as a born and bred Angeleno who has lived in various sections of the county, I think much of what makes my hometown inspiring for locals and visitors alike are the neighborhoods east of what is typically highlighted as Los Angeles. Here is a very whittled down list of some of my favorite spots mapped out using Jauntful, viewable and downloadable as a print-out to guide you on your next LA adventure.
