Lol wtf

It’s a pretty well balanced area, has about just as many homeless people as other parts of LA but not bad like DTLA or Venice. Good mix of young professionals and is laid back but has some solid spots to go out to in downtown Culver.


Culver is very safe.

Palms was great. I used to there 8 years ago and lived in the area for 3 years. Most things I enjoyed were just a 15 minute drive (no traffic. Still close enough to the water you get a nice breeze and I don't think ever used AC living there.

Yup have grown up around the area. Lot of young professionals and families. Very safe. Some homeless by the freeways but not too bad compared to other areas.

I live in Palms and the vibes are great. It’s locationally so central to the west side that it’s really easy to get around, and there are more restaurants and bars than you would expect (ie i expected zero), plus Culver is literally right there. Prices are decent, and I feel safe walking my dog at night as a woman.

Is it family friendly there? Any restaurant recommendations? (I’m visiting there with wife and baby next week)

Yeah definitely. Some great spots in Downtown Culver. Don’t know what your price range/food preference is but Uzumaki sushi, n/naka, cafe laurent, mee and greet, mayura indian, burrata house, honey kettle fried chicken, tacos el primo, and citizen republic market (has a bunch of different places in it) are all pretty good.

I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.
