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 — 7.5/10 Rating (based on 31 neighborhood reviews)
Palms is great! It’s very easy to get to campus on either the green Culver City bus (R6) or the Big Blue Bus (take the 12 or 17). ...if campus ever opens again. It’s also pretty bikable (with a few exceptions). There are also a lot of ways to get involved in the community (Palms neighborhood council, community garden, LATU west side, etc)

Good: Residential neighborhood on the other side of Sepulveda is full of families and nice for strolls.
A park is on the other side of the 405 and is easily within walking distance. Three grocery stores, two Starbucks, one Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf cafes, two pharmacies in the area as well as a handful of restaurants within walking distance. The best cookies in L.A. within driving distance (Zooey's Cookies). Bad: Area dominated by Sepulveda which is a major road. Ugly: The nature of how busy it is brings in wild card characters walking around area.

Palms feels like being in a city without the rush. It's halfway between downtown and Santa Monica and is walking distance to the metro which goes straight to either in about 30 minutes. There are a lot of local restaurants and it is about a mile to downtown Culver City which has even more restaurants. The area seems to be home primarily to young professionals. It feels extremely safe - other than an occasional stolen package, I haven't heard of any other crime activity in the area.

I love living in this area. I lived in Culver City before, and now live just over the border in Palms. It's further from campus than where most Anderson students live, but it is also less expensive. I like having a little distance from campus, and living in an area with so many great bars and restaurants.

We’re very close to downtown culver, so there’s accessible nightlife, great food, and lots of activities a stones throw away. But we’re far enough away that the rent is cheaper and the neighborhood is quiet. Traffic is pretty good going to UCLA- about 25 minutes in the morning during rush hour.

The Expo line runs through here making public transit actually accessible, and the proximity to Culver City is great. It’s also relatively affordable compared to other places on the west side.

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.

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.

Close to the metro line and downtown Culver which has a lot of nice restaurants and bars. The area is too expensive for what you get though and the homeless population has really increased with COVID.

It's nothing special. For relatively affordable apartments on the Westside, this is your best bet. Lots of young professionals, so there's a decent vibe. Lots of good restaurants with cuisine from all over the globe.
The parks & recreation in the neighborhood are substandard, but you're close enough to Culver City and its parks and bike paths.

Neighborhood is safe with lots of green space, especially good for dog owners. Walking distance to Palms Metro station which takes me to USC campus in about 40 minutes door-to-door. Also you can walk to downtown Culver City with all the restaurants and other businesses. Centrally located between Downtown and Santa Monica, so in a great location to get to either Westside or Downtown.

Palms is not very walkable itself, but it's easy to walk to downtown Culver City and the adjacent residential neighborhood. Culver has a few big parks and a nice dog park. Downtown Culver City is super walkable and has lots of cute bars, restaurants, shops, and theaters.

Palms has become much more unsafe in the past year - I don't walk alone after dark or much during the day either. We originally moved here for the proximity to the train and lower price relative to Culver but the area has had a major shift in terms of crime, homelessness, drug addicts, theft, etc.

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.

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.
