Palms and Mar Vista are popular Westside communities, which are quiet and leafy. They are surrounded by Venice to the West, Santa Monica to the North, West L.A. to the east and Culver City/Play Vista to the South.
Both neighborhoods are very family oriented and are known for their diversity, low-key coffee shops and restaurants. Parts of Mar Vista have hilly neighborhoods boosting ocean, mountain and city views along the tree lined streets.
A big attraction for families as always is the schools, with both good private and public schools available.
Palms-Mar Vista is filled with lots of great architecture including Mid-Century Modern, Craftsman and Spanish Colonials.
With their great location Palms and Mar Vista have easy access to everything and have a true family friendly community atmosphere.
