Los Feliz is a larger community that encompasses several smaller neighborhoods. The section of town located north of Los Feliz Blvd. and below Griffith Park is often referred to as the "Hills" and is home to a wide selection of multi-million-dollar homes where the creative elite tends to live. Over the years, the area has been the neighborhood of choice for musicians and movie stars. You'll pass quite a few notable homes on your daily walks.
There are dog-friendly parks and pet stores nearby to keep Fluffy well-fed and exercised. Speaking of eating, there are a number of excellent restaurants in the area including both upscale fine dining and fast-food like Fatburger.
Summers here are lovely with temperatures in the 80s and 90s, nothing in the way of rain to worry about, and a zero chance of snow in the winters. Winters are moderate with temperatures in the high 40s during the day in January.
Los Feliz is a blend of flat ground in some areas and foothills leading up the Santa Monica Mountains. While part of the community is laid out grid-fashion, other areas feature curved residential streets with plenty of hills for you and Fido to get your hikes in.
Hills are a great way to up your game when it comes to getting some good healthy exercise in. On the way up, the strain is on one particular set of your muscles and the walking is tough. On the way back down, both of you will be using a completely different set of muscles and the walking will be much easier. But just because the walking on the way down is easier on both of you, don't be fooled into thinking you aren't getting a workout! In fact, you are getting a good workout no matter which way you are going.
You won't find much in the way of green spaces inside of the Los Feliz area, but you don't have to drive very far to find it. Just to the north of the community lies the Hollywood Hills. The hills are filled with acres of grass to enjoy.
You can go also all the way to the old Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park. You might be surprised at how many people don't even know the old zoo exists. Many of the original buildings and animal enclosures are still here, albeit in an advanced state of disrepair. Griffith Park covers 4,210 acres of chaparral-covered grounds, landscaped parks, and places to picnic with your family and your furry friend. The trails in the park are rugged and add up to 53 miles to hike. You can even hike all the way to the top of Mount Hollywood where the view is spectacular!
