Make it painless, take Metro.
Seriously, if we can offer up one tip to navigating Culver City in a relaxed, not scrambling-for-parking way- take Metro & walk.
With so many events, restaurants, galleries, & fun things to do – trips to Culver City are always a memorable, good time.
With an Expo line station just off Robertson & Venice, it’s a quick & easy walk into downtown.
Instead of heading right into the thick of downtown, why not stroll over to see some street art & get some coffee?
… sound good?
Located in a mostly residential area, Bar Nine is one of our favorite places for coffee in Culver City.
Maybe it’s because it truly feels like a “neighborhood” coffee shop, or because people smile at you when you walk in – but Bar Nine is warm, inviting, & their coffee is awesome.
Plus they have good music… & records!
Alright, we know the Culver Hotel is well-known & on television shows, but we had to mention it. Just pop in even for a sec to check it out. The design outside & inside is pretty incredible.
The hotel is almost a century old & is a a National Historic Landmark – so soak in the art deco architecture from the ’20s & get a little bit of old L.A. history.
Tired of walking, yet? Okay, good – us either 😉
If you find yourself in Culver City on a Tuesday afternoon, stroll into the Culver City Farmers Market. We’re embarrassed to say that it took a year of our neighbor recommending the market for us to make our way there, but – SO glad we did!
We love basket bags that can be used for everything – beach trips, camping, fruit picking & of course farmer’s markets.
Baobob Collectives’ direct support of women’s Co-Ops makes all their colorful, useful goods even that more beautiful.
Taking a trip down memory lane for a minute, we met Clean Living at this market years ago.
Clean Living’s “clean” approach to bath products (never using toxic ingredients) & the environment (eliminating palm oil), totally inspired us to keep learning about products. Thanks to Jim of Clean Living for taking the time to explain so much to us.
We thought about heading back to the train & heading home, but in the spirit of being spontaneous – we walked down towards NPR & the Culver City Park.
Ever walked up that hill & over the wood bridge to check out the view? Shhhhh… it’s one of the best views of Mid-City to Santa Monica, so share with cool peeps.
Don’t believe us? Check out a video we did of the view…
we remind Angelenos of what “living locally” has to offer.
barrio.la finds local companies making high quality, eco-friendly goods right here in Southern California.
Los Angeles has so much going on & is alive with eclectic neighborhoods, places to see & things to do – so while we’re at it – we keep you in the know about cool things going on in your own ‘hood & the cool people making it all happen.
feel like wandering with us?
cool… ’cause that’s what we do here.
