Located along the coast of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains is the Pacific Palisades. The Los Angeles neighborhood is quaint but one of the most desirable places to live in California. As if being situated between mountains and ocean isn’t enough, the Pacific Palisades is known for its highly ranked school system, parks, and promenade.
The Palisades are extremely kid-friendly with multiple public charter schools. The Pacific Palisades High School, in particular, is known for its top-tier test scores and hands-on teaching style. The school is slotted for the surrounding neighborhoods of Pacific Palisades including Palisades Highlands, Kenter Canyon and portions of Brentwood. In addition to great academics, Pacific Palisades High School excels in athletics with teams including, but not limited to, cross country, cheerleading, tennis and even surfing!
Temescal Canyon Park, one of the most popular parks in the Santa Monica Mountains, is located right in the Pacific Palisades. The Palisades Park offers views of the Will Rogers State Beach amidst miles of lush wildlife. Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to hike and enjoy a lunch break at the many picnic tables scattered along the trail. Arguably the best part about the park is the bike path stretching 22 miles overlooking the ocean.
