Joy Knows

Echo Park

The hilly ’hood, centered around its namesake lake, is home to eclectic live music, art galleries and dining scenes that hold their own. Whether you’re looking to catch a game at Dodger Stadium or see upcoming concerts at one of the city’s best small live music venues, the Echoplex, you’ll find it here. Vegan restaurants are aplenty here, along with laid-back cafes, pizzerias and Mexican eateries. Keep an eye out for butterflies while you feed the ducks at Echo Park Lake, then explore the artist’s paradise at the heart of this vibrant community. And you definitely don’t want to miss Echo Park Rising, where indie rock meets foodie bliss in an annual festival spanning multiple stages with an assortment of activities. Most homes priced around $860,000.
