Playa Vista

Welcome to Playa Vista

Vibrancy and elegance await in this Southern California haven

Between its wide, palm-lined streets to its overriding California cool factor, Playa Vista has quickly established itself as a dazzling and desirable enclave. Intimate in size but big on impeccable open spaces, the up-and-coming gem holds many of the top traits the Golden State has become famous for, from access to exquisite beaches to charming, romantic restaurants. Add in exceptional walkability, great commutability, and flourishing industries, and you can see why Playa Vista tops lists as one of the most remarkable communities in California’s South Bay.

The pup-friendly parks found throughout Playa Vista magnify its appeal and add to its picturesque, small-town vibe. And yet, residents here are uniquely positioned to savor all of the wonders Los Angeles has to offer. World-class concert venues, extraordinary museums, and stunning art galleries are all a short distance away, giving Playa Vista residents the perfect combination of suburban quiet and city sophistication.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

Southern California is a veritable hotbed for irresistible cuisine. Playa Vista takes this up a notch with its own supply of delicious and memorable eateries. SOL Mexican Cocina swiftly became a community favorite upon its inception. Here, you can dive into delicious plates ranging from orange-enhanced tropical ceviche to coconut calamari with toasted sesame.

The fashionable and buzzy Del Frisco’s Grille in neighboring Santa Monica is another winner. Inventive dishes, like cheesesteak egg rolls with sweet and spicy chili and cabernet goat cheese-crowned filet mignons, are just two standouts on their impressive menu. And at Ritrovo in Playa Vista proper, you can indulge in distinct and authentic Italian fare, including eggplant Melanzane, paprika-roasted octopus, and prosciutto with aged fig balsamic and fresh mozzarella.

Shopping in Playa Vista and its nearby towns is just as delightful, particularly at Waterside, Marina del Rey, an outdoor shopping plaza that features a sweet mix of trendy and unique retailers, spas, and services. It also features Whole Foods so that Playa Vista locals can sustain their health-driven lifestyle, while the hipster-heavy Abbot Kinney Boulevard in nearby Venice features a slew of eclectic and fabulous retailers.

Things to Do

Playa Vista lures its residents outside for a variety of activities that celebrate Southern California’s weather and scenery. The Playa Vista Farmers’ Market is the go-to spot for locals who are on the prowl for fresh, organic produce, artisan baked goods, pretty blooms, and tantalizing herbs.

The latter furnishes kids with a bevy of activities, including soccer, tennis, basketball, and a children’s playground. 

When you’re in the mood to feel the sand beneath your feet, the youthful and glorious Dockweiler Beach is just a short commute away, while wonderful films and concerts are showcased at the verdant and pristine Concert Park, which often brings the spirited and affable community of Playa Vista together.
