I love our neighborhood. It's a special pocket of the City of Angels that feels just like a small town. Every Saturday morning, Lydia and I wander the neighborhood before most people are awake. I love exploring Culver City, and now that we are starting to think about buying a home of our own…..I pay even more attention to the things I love about our little town. I thought I'd share some of our favorite landmarks, and take you along on one of our Saturday morning strolls.Some of my favorite movies were filmed in Culver City…….the Wizard of Oz being one of them. I love seeing all the old movie studios during our walks…..we run into film crews doing location work almost every morning!Most of the buildings have maintained original fixtures, I love seeing the lamps and tile work. Historical Landmarks are everywhere, and make for some amazing home options.Lydia's favorite landmark? The lion fountain in homage to the MGM studios…..she can't get enough of the dancing water! In the summer, this fountain is always surrounded by kids! On those rare occasions we get to have a date night, I love our old fashioned movie theatre……it's walking distance from our little duplex and is surrounded by a variety of amazing restaurants. Movie and television inspired art is sprinkled throughout our little downtown…….I discover a new mural every time I wander down a new side street……usually with a latte in hand from one of our adorable coffee shops. After renting here in Culver City for the last three years, we are starting to think about buying a home of our own. In doing my research, I found out a ton of interesting info about home buying in California. The CA Association of REALTORS® is an amazing organization that is helping Californians to attain their dreams of home ownership as well as helping the entire state. Did you know that ene job is generated for every two home sales? Or that one home purchase stimulates the economy by $60K? So not only will we be helping ourselves when we are ready to buy, but the state as a whole! My absolute favorite view on our walks? This little angel sleeping peacefully……….
