Palms

Location, Location, Location
Though Palms is definitely a neighborhood that falls in between a lot of the more popular West LA areas, the neighborhood still has lots to offer within its own borders. Visit the Museum of Jurassic Technology for an absolutely, unique experience with a diverse collection of exhibits loosely dedicated to the advancement of knowledge or enjoy a highly-rated, chic dinner with the Japanese tasting menu at n/naka.

Renters here love the easy access to everywhere else and more affordable prices. They also find the area to very walkable and convenient with its safe feel and many options for grocery shopping. Palms is home to people from many different walks of life, including students at UCLA and families who find the commute worth the affordable pricing.

Palms — 7.9/10 Rating (based on 14 neighborhood reviews)
Really great location - halfway between Santa Monica and USC campus. Very central to other Westside neighborhoods too. The Expo Metro line is quite convenient too - there are both Palms and Culver City stops. Downtown Culver City is walking distance, and has lots of great restaurants, bars, and even a movie theater.

The best part about Palms is the central location. You are right next to Culver City and are really not very far from both Santa Monica and Downtown, as well as Westwood, Beverly Hills, and Century City. There are a few fun bars and plenty of food options within walking distance of most Palms residences. Most of the streets have a residential, neighborhood feel. Lots of cute dogs. There are also some massive, German Shepherd-sized raccoons that roam the streets starting around dusk, but they are not violent and are actually pretty cute.

Very residential and safe.
The neighborhood itself doesn't have much, but our location is just on the border with Culver City, where there are many options.

As of early 2019, Palms is one of the few neighborhoods on the Westside that remains affordable for students (barely...). The neighborhood is bounded by Venice Blvd to the south, the I-10 to the north, and the I-405 to the West. One of things I like about Palms is how walkable it is. Most building in Palms will be within 15 minutes walking from the metro, downtown Culver City, grocery stores, and bars. The neighborhood is undergoing density increases as newer, larger apartment structures are popping up around the area. Street parking is becoming more difficult to find.

Palms is nice and super close to Culver City. You're about halfway between Santa Monica and DTLA, so it's easy to get to either one. I have never had any issues with safety and there are groceries stores within walking distance along with a bunch of restaurants.

Light industrial with apartments and restaurants mixed in. Disapointing lack of good restaurants, but Culver is close by. Downtown Culver City is walkable.

I work in Santa Monica and Palms is within a very reasonable driving distance there. On mornings when I leave and the 10 is quiet, it only takes me 10-15 mins to get to work. Beyond that I can take regular roads into SM and get there within 15-25 mins (always depending on time/day). There are many nearby parks for children. Plenty of grocery store and located between two neighboring towns with large malls. The Costco is only 10 mins away (good traffic times) and you are close enough to the beach! I get to Playa Vista in 15 mins :D Really great, generally quiet neighborhood. Palms is primarily made up of apartments. Very central to traveling wherever you need to go.
