Known to insiders as one of the hippest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Echo Park boasts countless musicians, artists, actors, and families. Sitting just northwest of downtown L.A., this densely-populated area centers around Echo Lake and provides an eclectic range of homes, including older Victorian mansions and Spanish-style bungalows mixed with post-war and modern houses.

Locals regard Echo Park as the epicenter of the cool indie music and art scene. A patchwork of trendy cuisine, rollicking alternative bands, hip cocktail lounges, street art, and unique stores fill this sometimes sketchy hotspot to turn it into the epitome of "cool." Partially gentrified during the 2000s, this area still holds an element of its rougher days, which only gives the neighborhood more character.

Only 3.5 miles from downtown Los Angeles via Sunset Boulevard, drivers can also access other spots in the city and southern California using the Golden State and Glendale Freeways, which cross paths just north of the neighborhood.

Restaurants

Authentic Mexican, American, sushi, and vegetarian comprise some of the cuisines diners have to choose from along Sunset Boulevard. As one of the liveliest nighttime areas in Los Angeles, Echo Park's inhabitants can take their pick any night of the week.

Sit on the patio with a home-brewed macchiato and a fresh raspberry scone at Fix Coffee. Coffee lovers also frequent the Sunset Boulevard's Woodcat Coffee Bar, where the cortado coffee and flaky croissants come highly recommended.

Residents seeking fresh, authentic Japanese food hit up the Kush Sake Bar to fill up on fresh oysters, marinated pork belly, and the uniquely scrumptious grilled Japanese pumpkin, all washed down with a few shots of sake.

The mellow, unpretentious atmosphere, solid beer and wine selection, and old-school record player music draws locals to El Prado on Sunset Boulevard. Just down the road sits Elf Cafe, a vegetarian and vegan restaurant only open in the evenings. The truffled mushrooms on toast seem highly favored by those that come to dine.

A low-key artist hangout, Lot 1 Cafe serves as a sounding board for local musicians, letting them perform new songs in an intimate setting and get audience feedback as well as grab a decent burger and beer.

Get your groove on for Sole Night, and enjoy free entrance before 10:30 p.m., or sip cocktails while listening to the latest indie bands at the Echo on Sunset Boulevard. The owners of the Echo provide the larger music venue and bar Echoplex on Glendale Boulevard, which also features indie and underground music.

History

Echo Park prides itself as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, dating back to the late 19th century and developing in the early 1900s. Founded in 1892 by Thomas Kelly, the area's name may come from a strong echo people noticed while building the reservoir. The earliest silent film studios ran along Glendale Boulevard and numerous famed figures have called Echo Park home, including big names such as Leonardo Di Caprio and Woody Guthrie.

Echo Park hosts the annual Culture Collide Festival, a medley of live music, art, and film. Locals catch performing arts at Knightsbridge Theatre or the annual summertime Shakespeare festival and professional puppetry shows at the Bob Baker Marionette Theatre.

Transportation

Echo Park is highly walkable, with residents able to do most errands and leisure activities on foot. While the area proves somewhat biker-friendly, it lacks bike lanes and has a hilly terrain.

Drivers take Sunset Boulevard straight into downtown Los Angeles or access other areas of the city and southern California using the Glendale and Golden State Freeways. Numerous car-sharing and taxi services provide transportation options, including Uber, Zipcar, RelayRides and much more. The Los Angeles Metro system consists of bus access from Echo Park to downtown and other areas of the city. Parking is a mixed bag with drivers sometimes finding free street parking, or paying very little for all-day or metered parking, even along the busier commercial sections, unusual for Los Angeles.

Cost

Residents pay well for this hip neighborhood; the cost of living is approximately 1.9 percent higher than the average cost of living in Los Angeles. One-bedroom apartments in Echo Park rent for around $1,150 per month.

Heading into downtown Los Angeles, about 3.5 miles from Echo Park, costs $1.75 one-way or $25 for a week pass and $100 for a 30-day pass. Drivers pay around seven percent above the national average cost of gas. Residents budget $6 per pint of beer at the local pub.

Shopping

As with the restaurants and nightlife of Echo Park, most stores line Sunset Boulevard. Truly one of the more varied and unique shopping spots in Los Angeles, this area holds something for every taste. Bargain hunters search for hidden treasures here, such as cool vintage dresses at Sunday's Best Thrift Apparel.

Browse, hang out, or listen to a book reading all while enjoying a hot cup of coffee and homemade hummus with a bagel at Stories Books and Cafe. Locals stop by Lolipop Records not only to peruse the hard-to-find vinyl, but also to purchase recording-studio time or just hang out and have a drink with the owners.

Locals tend to opt for independent, smaller stores such as H & H Market, La Guadalupana Market, Sunset Food Market, El Rancho Market, and Little Grocery Market among others for everyday groceries. Stop by Vons or Trader Joe's next door in Silver Lake to stock up on essentials, or find fresh, locally-grown produce and meats while munching on a warm chocolate chip cookie at the Echo Park Farmers Market on Friday afternoon and evening.

Parks

Echo Park Lake sits at the neighborhood's center, a free public park surrounding a large lake with a fountain in the middle. The lake sits full of lotus leaves and duck families, encircled by palm trees. Locals come to rent the paddle boats at $10 a person per hour, jog around the fields and paths, get their dogs some exercise, or bring the little ones to skateboard or run around. Park goers can opt to buy food from vendors scattered through the park. Celebrate art and culture from Asian Pacific Regions at the annual Lotus Festival, held at the park.

A less-crowded alternative to Echo Park Lake is the more hidden gem, Vista Hermosa Natural Park. It serves as a perfect place to picnic, read a book, or take children to the well-kept playground. Those looking for a place to exercise can jog or bike along a little dirt path behind the grassy fields. Residents enjoy attributes such as plenty of parking in the lot or street and a fantastic view of downtown Los Angeles.
