Pacific Palisades is a quiet, upscale neighborhood of West LA, bordered by ocean view bluffs on one side, and the Santa Monica Mountains and state parks on the other. The "village" boasts an array of great restaurants and boutiques, as well as a popular Sunday Farmer's Market. Home to Will Rogers State beach, many a celebrity, and more than a half dozen amazing hiking trails, all with fabulous ocean views. It's 10 minutes to the 3rd Street promenade, 20 minutes to Beverly Hills, Westwood, West Hollywood. Minutes from the PCH, Getty Villa. For design buffs, you may tour The Charles and Ray Eames house nearby. While the best way to travel in LA is always by car, public transportation is available and convenient. The Big Blue Bus on the corner takes you to downtown Santa Monica, and links you to the downtown LA Metro lite rail system.
While the best means to get around in sprawling Los Angeles is always by car, you are a ten minute walk to shops and restaurants. There are bus stops around the corner to take you into downtown Santa Monica and other parts of LA. Access is easy via the PCH, 10 freeway and Sunset Blvd.
The #9 bus to Santa Monica (which links up to other buses/destinations) is shown under photos, as is the map for the closest Rapid Transit bus. The #9 Big Blue Bus will take you to the new Expo Line in Santa Monica that goes downtown.
