South Park can be found tucked away in between the 110 and the 10. But let’s get into the nitty gritty in our latest blog, your neighborhood guide to South Park.
South Park – our South Park – is smack dab in the middle of a very desirable area. You’ve go the Pico-Union on the west, West Adams by the southwest, the South Los Angeles district over on the southeast, and the Financial District up on the northeast.
The district’s proximity to the University of Southern California, as well as the Blue Line light rail–line, give South Park a distinctly youthful and up-and-coming feel. And it’s here you’ll find everything from famous restaurants, great shopping, and top notch entertainment, as well as art and culture, and architecture. Let’s start with the restaurants, shall we?
In no particular order, you need to check out Arashi Sushi, Rosa Mexicano, the Rock’n Fish, Smashburger, Ford’s Filling Station, the Hygge Bakery, Kaffebaren, La Guera, and the Nixon Bar Lounge. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
And as for shopping, South Park gives up so much choice you might run out of time before you run out of money. There’s over 72 outlets in South Park ranging from Architect’s Corner to Melody Truckload, from Bowen House to the Nike Vault, from Citron Clothing to Step Sportswear.
