Highland Park is one of Los Angeles’s oldest neighborhoods. Originally part of the Mexican Rancho San Rafael, the area was divided in 1848 when, after the Mexican-American War, it became part of the United States. Since then, the area has become a melting pot of ethnic groups. Thanks to its beautiful neighborhoods and picture-perfect landscapes, the area has been featured in many films and television shows, including Supernatural, Reservoir Dogs, and Gangster Squad. Today, the area is ethnically diverse and extremely arty.
Highland Park boasts a variety of wonderfully scrumptious restaurants. Days can be spent exploring downtown’s artsy shops or searching for old records in one of the many old vinyl shops. It is an idyllic location for young families and many of the shops cater to the young children of fashionable, hip parents.
