You’ll Fall in Love With

 
Mar Vista’s mostly quiet residential streets lead to low-key coffee shops, cleaners, and thrift centers along its affably-aged main avenues. Pedalers trace the path of the sun past beachside bungalows and colorful apartment complexes as they make their way toward the shore. This relentlessly unassuming Westside neighborhood favors unhurried excursions—slow-children-at-play signs are as common as slow food movements. When in Mar Vista, prepare to travel slowly, too, unless you’ve arranged yourself an automobile for adventuring.
