If you are looking for an affordable place to live within commuting distance of Culver City, Hancock Park, and the beach, then Arlington Heights could be just what you are looking for. It's an excellent place for those looking for a family-friendly place to live. Housing ranges from large single-family homes to upscale apartment buildings. Being located right next to I-10 makes commuting to work easier than having to drive through large areas of the city. While there are several restaurants in the area to sample and pet supply stores nearby, if you want a dog park, you will have to drive to one.
The climate in Los Angeles is considered quite moderate with summer temperatures in the 80s and winters dropping no lower than the 40s. On top of this, it never snows here and, in the average year, you might get as much as 15 inches of rain.
Suburban L.A. doesn't change much, no matter where you go. Arlington Heights in Los Angeles isn't that much different to Arlington Heights in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It's just another area of flat terrain in a major city. Here, you will find plenty of sidewalks for you and Fido to walk on. There are even a few rolling hills to add a bit of variety to your daily excursions. But, beyond this, it's up to you to be creative and make your strolls more interesting for both of you. The more new places you can take your pup to in the neighborhood, the more exciting they will find your walks.
You can add more variety by changing the blocks you walk around or the direction you choose when you walk out the front door. The idea is to be as creative as possible and both of you will always have a good time!
You know you live in L.A. when you live in a neighborhood where there are no green spaces to explore. In fact, if you want a green space big enough for you and Fido to thoroughly enjoy, it's going to be a bit of a drive.
Heading north will take you to Hollywood Hills and several parks where you and Fido can spend hours, days, and weeks exploring the miles of trails to be found. For a real challenge, you can head over to the site of the Old Los Angeles Zoo. Here, you will find the ruins of the zoo, places to take your family for a picnic, and, of course, more miles of trails for Fido to check out with their favorite exploring tool: a finely tuned nose. One trip out this way and you will find yourself looking for any excuse at all to go back time and again!
