One of Los Angeles’ most affluent neighborhoods, the Pacific Palisades is surrounded by Brentwood, Malibu, Topanga, Santa Monica, the Pacific Ocean, and the Santa Monica Mountains (also known as paradise). The walkable Village offers traditional French pastries at Maison Giraud, fashion-forward threads at Elyse Walker (Rick Owens by the beach, who knew?), and a thriving farmers’ market. The primarily residential neighborhood is home to the world-class Riviera Country Club, lush Rustic Canyon and Will Rogers State Historic Park, and oceanfront Getty Villa.
