As you walk along the streets, you will spy some trendy places to eat and shop as Silverlake is known as a 'hipster's' playground. Need to get a quick bite to eat? Why not head to the outdoor patio of Gingergrass on Glendale Boulevard for some healthy and yummy Vietnamese food with the whole family. The Mixville Shopping Center is ripe for window shopping! Fido could use a new leash or a toy and he will let you know if he spies one in the shopping center's many windows. Throughout the neighborhood, you'll have your fill of options to choose from.
The city offers many beautiful overlooks to the valleys below. Many of the houses were built in the 1950s and still exude that same old-time charm. If you need a place to rest or have a scenic picnic, you can take your food and your blanket to the meadow at Silver Lake Reservoir and open that picnic basket, play some frisbee, or just relax! The area is pleasant enough for all sorts of activities.
The reservoir also has a basketball court and a 2.2-mile walking and jogging path. There is also a part of the reservoir that is now a public beach-like swimming area called the 'Silver Lake Plunge', but since the area is popular with the younger crowd, it is locally known as 'Hipster Beach'. What a great place to spend the day with your furry friend! Remember to clean up after your pet while inside the Reservoir and don't forget to have fun!
