Why Mid Wilshire, Los Angeles, CA Is A Great Place To Live

I have lived in the Mid Wilshire neighborhood of Los Angeles, California for my entire life, and I can honestly say that I love living here. Mid Wilshire is a small neighborhood located due East of Santa Monica and just South of West Hollywood. It has a nice, small town community feel to it due to the large distinct ethnic groups that inhabit the area. It is just a 20 minute drive to the beach, making it an accessible and fun place to live.

One of the best parts about living in the Mid Wilshire area of LA is that it has amazing restaurants and family owned businesses on almost every street. The diversity in Mid Wilshire is amazing, as it has Korean, Mexican, African-American, Caucasian and Chinese people all living in close quarters to each other. My favorite restaurant in the area is El Cholo. A family owned authentic Mexican restaurant, El Cholo has some of the best tortillas in town.

Of course, the weather in Mid Wilshire, and Los Angeles in general, cannot be beat. The amazing weather here makes going to the beach a daily ritual for most residents, as it is just a quick drive down Rosa Parks Highway to get to Santa Monica. The scenery here is also nice, as palm trees line most streets and plenty of businesses light up at night.

However, not everything about Mid Wilshire, Los Angeles is sunny. Despite being close to the highways yet far from the beaches and downtown, the rent in Mid Wilshire is still high compared to other area of the city. Not only that, but the non-violent crime rate is relatively high here. New residents quickly learn to lock their cars and keep their valuables hidden. Also, the shopping here is relegated to mostly mom-and-pop stores and boutiques. It can be difficult to find fashionable clothes in this neighborhood. The nightlife in Mid Wilshire is also lacking. Most clubs here cater to the diverse ethnic groups that inhabit the area, meaning that they can be hit or miss depending on the night.

Despite its negative attributes, Mid Wilshire has a vibrant community, delicious food and is in the center of one of the most beautiful cities in the states.
