Highland Park is a historic, artsy Eastside neighborhood. The house is close to some great bars and restaurants (The Greyhound, La Cuevita, Antigua Bread) as well as the Highland Theater, which is an art deco theater, and the newly reopened and renovated Highland Park Bowl. There's also several workout studios within walking distance and beautiful nature hiking spots.
Close to several neighborhood pubs, cafes, coffee houses and hipster restaurants. The neighborhood has a rich Mexicana cultural history complete, with Mexicana murals, graffiti, restaurants, taco trucks and fruit stands. The 90 year old Highland Theatre is one block away and several other historic buildings are just 1-3 blocks from the house.
Great Location for Public Transit! If you don't have a car during your stay, even better, because your a few feet from the train station. The Highland Park Metro Rail station (Gold Line) is half a block from the house. It's a 15 min train ride to downtown LA (Southbound) with stops in Chinatown, Union Station, and Little Tokyo and its a 15 min train ride to Pasadena (Northbound). You can also take the train to Hollywood and/or Long Beach. I recommend researching where the train goes so you can decide where you wanna go during your stay. Its a great way to get around in a city notorious for its traffic. If you're flying in, you can grab the "flyaway bus" from LAX to Union Station ($8 I believe) where you can take the Gold line right to the front door of the house.
Great Location if you have a car! Close to the and 210 freeways. The house is located in a great area of Los Angeles from a freeway standpoint. You'll mostly use the 110 since its right by the house, but you'll also have access to the 5 and the 134. Being situated close to so many freeways allows you to take alternate routes when traffic is bad. Its about a 20 min drive to Hollywood, 10-15 min to downtown, 10 min to Dodger stadium, and 10 min to the Rose Bowl.
There is no smoking in the house. For anyone who smokes, there are ashtrays provided both on the back porch and the front porch. Also, please take the time to read the house rules online before arriving.
