Toluca Lake is a small, peaceful neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley with a tightknit community feel. Its mansions provide shelter to families, retirees, and celebrities given its proximity to movie and television studios. Many of these upscale homes have incredible views of the Santa Monica Mountains.
When you want to relax you can hang out at the local lake where you can rent a miniboat or watch the swans. Or if you've got unlimited funds like many of its residents you can buy yourself a membership at the pricey Lakeside Golf Club.
