  WHAT’S LIVING IN Eagle Rock LIKE?

Eagle Rock has acheived the status of being named one of LA's "hot neighborhoods" and the joke is that it's where hipsters move when they have kids. Named for a large rock bluff with the impression of an eagle on it, this is a diverse, vibrant community with boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, and bars along Colorado Boulevard, its main street.

You'll find a mix of homes here, ranging from modest bungalows to to beautiful Spanish-style houses to apartment buildings. Like many of LA's eastern neighborhoods, Eagle Rock can get extremely hot in the summer so you'll want to make sure your home includes air conditioning (or expect to buy a window unit).

Eagle Rock has a number of well-rated schools for children of all ages. It's also home to Occidental College, which is a well-ranked liberal arts college of roughly 2,000 students.

A local park here has sports fields, a jungle gym for kids, and dog run. Proximity to three major highways makes it simple – though not necessarily quick – to go elsewhere in the city.

Eagle Rock is bordered on the north by Glendale, on the east by Pasadena, on the south by Highland Park and Mount Washington, and on the west by Glendale and Glassell Park.
