Pacific Palisades Reviews

All Categories
The best neighborhood free from the gridlock traffic that plagues the rest of Los Angeles. Many families, lots of the rich & famous and high performing business/community leaders. Not many apartments and the entry level house is $1.5-$2.5 million. Although conservative in lifestyle, majority are rabid liberals. Strong community values with excellent participation at all age levels. Beaches are better than Santa Monica or Malibu, but there is no night life, town closes at 9pm sharp. Palisades Patrol is a professional, no nonsense security service that always seems to be aware of what is going on and is jonny on the spot at any incident. Oustanding hiking and mountain biking routes.

Pacific Palisades is a wonderful place for a family. Most of the people at the Palisades are relatively nice, and it's a very tight-knit community. If you're into local businesses, the Palisades has plenty of them that you can go to for eating, shopping and more. While it can be on the pricey side, it's a nice place to go and settle down for a family. It isn't really a touristy area and there are some celebrities that live within the area rather than living in other well-known places.
Pacific Palisades is the escape from the busy LA. The homes are beautiful and have views of the mountains and ocean. Soon the new village will be opening and it will have a movie theater, stores, restaurants, and a market. The people are very nice and the neighborhood is family friendly.
