Great city very close to everything you could possibly want while also giving you better bang for your buck when compared to other LA locations.
I love living here. Safe and everything is nearby. Perfect area for families. Always people walking around with their babies and dogs
Sherman Oaks is a great area to live in if you don't want to live in quiet suburbia but also are not looking to live in the city. There are great schools in the area and a lot of really cool small businesses. Something that is not great however is that there are a lot of homeless individuals in the area due to the high cost of living. This is an issue all throughout Los Angeles.
Ive lived in the area for 5 years now and i live how close it is to everything while still being removed from the hectic big city. There are plenty of parks and diverse food options. I hope to buy a house here one day.
The residents are friendly, and the neighborhood is clean for the most part. I find that the quiet living style best suits me here in contrast to central Los Angeles.
I have lived here in Sherman Oaks my entire life. Not much to do but it is a great place to move if you want to start a family right out side the big city. It also is within driving distance from everything from Disneyland to San Diego.
I love Sherman Oaks! Great community of people! Safe, family-friendly community. Suburban, but close enough to the city.
Very hot in the summer. A lot of renters, very congested. Nice proximity to most places, pack a lunch if driving there. Still wondering why anyone would pay the cost housing to live in the Valley.
Sherman Oaks is a very nice neighborhood with a variety of restaurants nearby which offer no shortage of food options. It is right by the 405 and 101 freeway which allows for easy access for a commute. However, there can be a lot of traffic and streets can be loud with cars speeding past. The neighborhood is quite friendly with dogs being walked and families strolling.
Sherman Oaks is a wonderful city. It has a lot to do. Their are restaurants , movie theaters that the community can enjoy.
I really dig Sherman Oaks, CA. I am a southern California born and raised college student who has lived everywhere! Sherman Oaks is great! Gets all the sun, access to busy Ventura Blvd, the 405 freeway and the 101. Up the street is a park that spans a few miles and contains a golf course, shooting range, lake, Japanese tea garden, and all other amenities of a great park!
Sherman oaks is a family friendly city to live in. It has a lot going on as far as shopping with many dining options on Ventura Boulevard. You can always find people walking their dogs, taking a walk or riding their bikes along the small walking trails. Most neighbors are nice and helpful, and almost everyone picks up after their pets. As they should. Over all, Sherman Oaks is a good community to live in. Its a shame that housing is extremely expensive and out of reach. Owning a home in Sherman Oaks is totally out of the questions for those us that make less than 200K or more a year. On the plus side, we have several options for supermarkets and I just wish we had more specialty supermarkets that cater to a specific community such as Mexican markets, Indian markets and such. During the last three years, my family and I have enjoyed the quiet life in Sherman Oaks. A downside is living around Sepulveda Blvd., between Ventura and Burbank, so we are boxed in between awful traffic.
Easy access to everything, but still chill and real. Can’t beat the hills for the views, and the quick drive to get away to the ocean. Love it here.
It is a super safe and friendly neighborhood. I feel comfortable going out on a walk when I want and without any fear. There is not much diversity but everyone here is really nice.
The area is great for living and amazing for families! After a hard day of working it's a very nice area to return to. It's safe and you're able to walk to places.
Just moved to Sherman Oaks 1 year. Everything is getting better. More upscale restaurants, new Whole Food. Location is close to downtown and west side.
