Brentwood has long been an affluent sleepy suburban neighborhood, favored by celebrities like Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon as the best place to raise their children in Los Angeles. With its great school district, leafy tree-lined streets, a more youthful and relaxed version of Beverly Hills and lots to see and do, Brentwood is the perfect choice.
About equi-distance between Beverly Hills and Malibu, Brentwood is also a really great shopping mecca away from the hustle and bustle of the city but losing nothing on the designer boutique cache.
The delightful Brentwood Country Mart is a fun place to escape to with its rustic but chic charm with stores including Christian Louboutin, Intermix, James Perse, Diesel and more for clothing and lovely eateries like Caffe Luxxe, Farmshop and Sweet Rose Ice Cream for a casual bite to eat.
Other dining options in Brentwood include the delightful Tavern restaurant, modern steakhouse Baltaire, French eatery The Little Door, and Japanese hotspots Katsuya and Sugarfish.
Sundays are also a great time to visit to explore their great farmers market!
