One of Los Angeles’ most affluent neighborhoods, the Pacific Palisades is surrounded by Brentwood, Malibu, Topanga, Santa Monica, the Pacific Ocean, and the Santa Monica Mountains (also known as paradise). The walkable Village offers traditional French pastries at Maison Giraud, fashion-forward threads at Elyse Walker (Rick Owens by the beach, who knew?), and a thriving farmers’ market.
