Top Tips

The Valley is so big that you can forget about walking across town, but if you park and go (or take transit) there are plenty of walking neighborhoods for urban exploration. The NoHo Arts District brings in visitors with tiny stages for live performances and some fun restaurants and cafes (get there by Metro Red Line subway), Studio City's Tujunga Blvd packs a lot of character into a few blocks of shops and restaurants, and Brand Blvd in downtown Glendale is home to the upscale Americana shopping center and plenty of one-off shops and eats.
