I have lived in the South Los Angeles, CA my entire life and I completely love it here. I am married to my best friend and husband and we have 2 beautiful children that we will hope to keep in the area after they graduate from college in a few years. My neighborhood has been friendly and supportive of everything that has been brought up to them at our monthly community meetings.

There are so many fun and entertaining things to do in South Los Angeles that it is hard to name just a few but I will try. The Getty Center is probably the most visited site in my area of Los Angeles because of the history and beautiful art that it has to offer to a variety of site seeing individuals. The Getty Center is a building that is simply amazing, with views from balconies, fountains, and an outdoor villa motif. The train ride up to the museum is an added treat that many people don't know about if they arean't from the area, so a for sure visit on your list. If you are someone that enjoys cars you will want to visit the Nethercutt Museum. The Nethercutt Museum features cars between the 1910 and 1930 along with collections of furniture, dolls and the world's best collection of mechanical musical instruments.
