Sherman Oaks Reviews
Sherman Oaks is a great neighborhood for families, but with certain areas rapidly growing and appealing to the mid-20s demographic, it is a wonderful place to live regardless of age.
I have been living in this area my whole life. It is beautiful and its location is perfect for the LA lifestyle but not too close to where you'd be too clustered with it. Sherman Oaks has great public services and is genuinely a safe area to be living in or visit. Public Schools are in the LAUSD district, usually they are decent and good for your son or daughter. Depending where you want to live in Sherman Oaks it could become pricey but there are some affordable apartments in this area and completely safe. The nightlife is all in Ventura Blvd, you go there and its full of life and good choices of food and bars. The diversity is rich and the city does have different ethnicity you can encounter. There is a mall with good amount of stores and a nice food court the mall is a great place to spend time at. Sherman Oaks overall is a great neighborhood.
Sherman Oaks is a vibrant neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, just on the other side of the Hollywood Hills. It's conveniently located near the intersection of the 101 and 405 freeways, as well as the various canyon routes through the Hills, so commuting is about as easy as it can be in the Los Angeles Metro area. The residential areas are quiet and well-kept -- especially those on the South side of Ventura Boulevard. Access to the necessities (grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, etc.) is plentiful, as are the dining and shopping establishments -- including the Sherman Oaks Galleria. It isn't the hippest place in town, but if you're a raising a family or just looking for a place that's safe and convenient for less money than you would ever pay in Hollywood, it's hard to go wrong with Sherman Oaks.
Sherman Oaks is close enough to greater LA to make the commute tolerable, yet far enough away to have nice neighborhoods and still be affordable. Rents are reasonable and there are parks and quiet streets, plenty of parking, Sherman Oaks Galleria for shopping and movies and all varieties of restaurants along Ventura Blvd. From Castle batting cages and mini-golf to the best sushi you can get at Iroha, it's altogether a pretty awesome place to chill or go out and have some fun =]
It is a nice part of Los Angeles County. It is close to all parts of the valley and city. It is near a good business area on Ventura Blvd. and near to Burbank. The homes are nice and the area is quiet. There are several nice parks in the area.
Sherman Oaks is a great town to live in. I grew up in a near by city and moved to Sherman Oaks as an adult. One of my favorite things about Sherman Oaks is just taking a walk down Ventura Blvd. I have met so many different kinds of people, from different walks of life here. It is truly a diverse place to live in.
It's a very nice neighborhood that is rather safe. It can be expensive considering it is a higher end neighborhood with a high upperclass population, but the safety and environment is worth it. Sherman Oaks is also very close to Studio City, Van Nuys, Encino, and it is a quick drive to go through the canyons to Beverly Hills and Hollywood.
Love Sherman Oaks for its proximity to many other areas of Los Angeles and environs, with the 101 and 405 freeways close by. Sherman Oaks has a great public library, park and pool, with Lake Balboa recreation nearby. There are many shops, restaurants and services in the area. Treelined streets and good schools. OK, it's hot in the summer!
Sherman Oaks is by far my favorite city in the greater Los Angeles area. Lots of families in a safe neighborhood, but also a duality in the sense that there are still a lot of young hip people too and many places to hang out whether it be local or going right over the hill into “the city”.
Sherman Oaks was the best area to grow up in. The schools there, both public and private provided me a great education and opportunities for involvement in the community. The area as a whole is great, including the parks, restaurants and other activities for families and groups of friends to enjoy.
Honestly, Sherman Oaks is the best place I've ever lived in. I just got engaged, and it's such a great place to set some roots. The very first day I took a tour of my current apartment, I actually met Rev. Run! He saw me carrying my guitar while out with his wife and told me to "Keep playing brotha' I'll see you soon." Right before he settled his wife into the passenger seat, slid into his all black Range Rover, and pulled off. The funny part, is I'm actually a very talented musician, and to this day- he hasn't heard me play a lick.
I have lived in Sherman Oaks all of my life. I enjoyed growing up here. There are good shops, movie theaters, coffee shops nearby. Sadly over the years there has been a rise in homelessness in Sherman Oaks, I would like to see that change.
Sherman Oaks is a safe area with much to offer in the realm of recreation. Plenty of restaurants, parks, and shopping centers call Sherman Oaks their home! A great city for families.
I love Sherman Oaks, it is a city that i feel safe and at home in. It has a young and upcoming vibe to it and has a lot to offer as far as night life and walkable streets/shopping. The only thing i would like to change is how much traffic there is.
It's a great little pocket in the valley. It has everything one would need to raise a healthy family and it's not too far from the amenities that Los Angeles has to offer.
Very close to everything you might need and pretty safe compared to other areas. People are for the most part nice.
Sherman Oaks is an amazing place to live. It is full of different people from their beautiful ethnically diverse backgrounds. There is essentially a place for every type of person to feel comfortable with their own hobbies. In my experience, the neighborhoods are safe and full of kids playing with each other. Anyone can feel accepted and "at home". I, myself, attended Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter as a child, and it serves as a foundation of some of my fondest memories.
