Culver City, Los Angeles.

Once home to the legendary MGM Studios where classics like The Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind were filmed, the neighborhood of Culver City is steeped in rich cinematic history.

The studio lot, now owned by Sony, offers daily tours to visitors, and the area even features its own mini-Walk of Fame, located on the east end of Washington Boulevard and commemorating sixty films that were produced nearby.

Although it has a glorified film history, Culver City is still known to have pockets of seedy sections, however, the area has seen a drastic revitalization in recent years that has transformed its downtown from a ghost town into a vibrant – though still somewhat limited – nightlife destination for young professionals and artsy types.

Short walking distances – yes, people do walk in LA – mean it’s easy to hop between the trendy organic restaurants, wine bars, gastropubs, and movie theaters.

Beyond downtown, several more raucous theme bars and craft beer lounges catering to a harder-drinking crowd have started popping up.

And not to be forgotten is the Culver City Art District, several blocks along Washington Boulevard chock full of art galleries and host to periodic art walk events.
