  WHAT’S LIVING IN Culver City LIKE?

Like Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, Culver City is not technically part of the City of Los Angeles but locals generally don't make a distinction. It was founded in 1913 by Harry Culver, who wasn't satisfied enough to have a city named after him and marketed his eponymous paradise with ads saying "All roads lead to Culver City." (Ego much?) 

Culver City has been home to a number of television and movie studios since the 1920s, including MGM and Sony Pictures, and the cast of "The Wizard of Oz" stayed in one its historic hotels during filming. Today its downtown area has a vibrant shopping and dining scene within easy walking distance from homes and apartments. It's also home to a light rail station that can get you downtown in 40 minutes.

Families here love the fact that children can stay close to home for their entire education: the elementary school, middle school, and high school are all excellent.

Culver City is bordered on the north by Mar Vista and Palms, on the east by Ladera Heights, West Adams, and Baldwin Hills, on the south by Inglewood, and on the west by Del Rey and Playa Vista.
