The heart of the Magnolia Park
neighborhood of Burbank
may appear to zap its locals through a time machine back to the late '50s or early '60s. Funky shops, art galleries, and thrift stores sit side-by-side to create a little pocket of hipster heaven in this charming, close-knit neighborhood, just 12 miles of downtown Los Angeles. Enjoy annual movie nights, neighborhood holiday events, and food truck festivals that add to the sense of community.
Locals push strollers or ride bikes up to Magnolia Boulevard to grab a bite from a trendy food truck. Porto's, the Portuguese bakeshop, draws people from all over the city. The single-family homes
for rent in this neighborhood tend toward the affordable, and the residents regularly spend leisure time in the very park that gives the neighborhood its name.
