Pacific Palisades

“Where the mountains meet the sea,” is a phrase commonly used to describe Pacific Palisades, a district located in west Los Angeles. It is surrounded by Brentwood, Topanga, Malibu, Santa Monica, Santa Monica Bay and the Santa Monica Mountains. Originally founded by missionaries, the area was to be used as a commune. However, as parcels of land were sold off, the land’s original intended use gave way to multimillion dollar homes for the rich and famous. Most of the homes enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean. Even though Pacific Palisades was not developed as originally intended, some of the missionary’s work still exists and remains intact for its 27,000 residents.

Pacific Palisades is an affluent neighborhood, and many famous people reside there. Some of its more famous residents include actor Dan Ackroyd and his wife Donna Dixon, comedian Billy Crystal, cartoon pioneer Mel Blanc, comedian/actors Tommy Chong and Dom DeLuise, country music star Brad Paisley and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams, actor Ray Liotta and actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

The area is divided into eight sections:

  • The Alphabet Streets – the streets of the Palisades are named in alphabetical order after missionaries from previous centuries.
  • The Bluffs
  • Castellammare – home of Getty Villa
  • Huntington Palisades
  • Marquez Knolls
  • Palisades Highlands
  • The Riviera – home to the Riviera Country Club and the Northern Trust Open
  • Rustic Canyon – home of the Will Rogers State Historic Park
  • The Village

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!

  3. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or
    vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that
    I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks!

  8. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward
    for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
