Highland Park is a diverse and historic community within Los Angeles. The Latino culture is strong and represented in many small businesses with amazing food and services. I love getting pupusas down the street at El Buen Sabor, late night street tacos on Figueroa, coffee at Tierra Mia, and my easy access to the Gold Line!

I recently relocated to Highland Park from Grant Park in Atlanta. Highland Park is a great neighborhood! Our neighbors are friendly, but we have our privacy. Plenty of coffee shops, grocery store nearby, plant shops, and bakeries. The land has some texture, so many places have a nice view. I like the accessibility to downtown as well.
The diversity and the various business that are currently showing up in Highland Park. It gives the neighborhood night life a very vibrant atmosphere. Having lived here at Highland Park for all my life, it's nice to see it change and accommodate new home owners. Although the housing market currently seems to be getting higher, which makes potential young home owners to live here and experience the evolution of Highland Park.
