Joy Knows

Mount Washington

As far as LA neighborhoods go, Mount Washington isn’t the most well-known — and that’s a good thing. Like a hidden mountain village in the heart of LA, this neighborhood might just be the prettiest little secret in the city. Here you’ll find open views of valleys and canyons, Dodger Stadium, Griffith Observatory, and the Hollywood sign. Mount Washington is also convenient for being only 5 minutes from downtown. With friendly neighbors and hillside homes done in beautiful colors, the quietly curving streets, gorgeous native landscaping and assorted wildlife make for a neighborhood you may never want to leave. Most homes priced around $800,000.

“Here you can escape to your cabin in the hills, and stay true to the Eastside.”

Kids

Mount Washington is a great place to raise a family, with its very own magnet school and a cute little rec center with a playground.

Parks

Visit Moon Canyon Park, Heidelberg Park, or Sycamore Grove Park, then check out the amazing views at the Top of Mount Washington.

Places

The Southwest Museum of the American Indian was the first museum in LA, circa 1907 — but the “Arroyo castle” Lummis House is even older.
