If you want diversity, look no further than Echo Park. Travel up the steep hill to Dodger stadium or down Sunset Boulevard to enjoy everything from vinyl shops to cute fashion and cupcake boutiques. Handcrafted food and smoothies abound, it truly caters to whatever you’re looking for. If Echo Park Lake (off Glendale Boulevard) is the proverbial heart, Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard are surely what pumps life into the neighborhood. From CrossFit to pizza (Masa is not to be missed if you prize Chicago-style deep dish), from brioche to boats, eating and exercising are nearly inseparable everywhere you look. And let’s not forget the hip music epicenter The Echo. It’s easy to find something for everyone in this cool eastside locale. Take a leisurely walk or a brisk run around the lake, and afterward celebrate a job well done at the hole-in-the-wall Gold Room tavern.
