Located along the beautiful Pacific Coast between Santa Monica and Malibu, the Palisades is often referred to as the ?Hancock Park by the Beach? ? as it is one of the LA neighborhoods with the strongest community feel. The hub of the community is the Palisades Town founded in 1922. Made up mainly of boutiques, restaurants, banks, grocery stores and businesses it is constantly traversed by baby strollers, dogs and the community as a whole.
