Culver City is a sweet Westside community. It has a mix of single-family houses and larger condo/apartment complexes, but housing prices are skyrocketing across the board. New developments may ease that, but many are luxury buildings without substantial affordable units. They also won't ease traffic congestion, which is an issue throughout LA. Luckily, the Expo Line runs through Culver City, terminating at Santa Monica in the west and Downtown LA in the east. There are also local municipal bus lines, in addition to LA metro lines, and a move to be more bike-friendly. The city prides itself on its historic association with the Film industry, and it continues to highlight Entertainment careers as a major draw. It's also big on Tech, with the new Playa Vista developments next door and major media organizations moving in. But it still manages to have a sense of artsy funkiness and small-town charm, despite the ongoing growth and proliferation of major chains. I hope it stays weird!
Culver City is a great suburb in Los Angeles to grow up. It is a very safe, close knit neighborhood. The people of this town are welcoming and friendly. The location is great, especially since it is local to many popular areas such as Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice and the South Bay. It is a highly developed community with several businesses and job opportunities. The best part about being raised in Culver City was being surrounded by diversity. It is one of the most diverse and accepting neighborhoods in Los Angeles. There are people from many different ethnic and religious backgrounds, which is why I believe Culver City is a special place. Culver City also has a great school district. There are five elementary schools to choose from, a middle school and high school all within a decent radius. My overall experience living in Culver City has been great and I am glad to have been raised in such a wonderful neighborhood.
