This neighborhood stretches only two-square miles and is located in the City of Los Angeles on the Westside region of Los Angeles County; South of Beverlywood and Beverly Hills, Southeast of Rancho Park and Northwest of Culver City. The neighborhood was founded in 1886 and the founders transplanted 5,000 palm trees to line the trees, hence the name, Palms. It is one of the mostly densely populated neighborhoods in Los Angeles with majority of its residence comprising of millennials ranging in age between 19-34. Palms is home to many UCLA students, given the close proximity to the school, about 5 miles north and has a very diverse population. The public schools in Palms are above average. As for shopping and eateries, while high-end shopping and restaurants are not plentiful in the neighborhood (you can find some in the neighboring areas); however, there are a lot of hidden gems that are low key and provide a great culinary and shopping experience, like the Doughroom, Kogi’s Taqueria or the Anonymous LA that has an amazing selection of locally made fashion items.
