The Perfect Weekend In San Fernando Valley

  |     |   Uncategorized

So the work week is over and you’re already itching to do something fun and exciting on your time off? San Fernando Valley is an innovative and beautiful city with popular tourist attractions, hidden gems, adventurous hiking trails, high-end restaurants, and theme parks that are perfect for checking out on the weekends.  


Check out this list of popular things to do in San Fernando Valley and start planning your weekend!  


Breakfast At Victory Cafe 

The best way to start a weekend of fun and food is by meeting some friends for breakfast at Victory Cafe. This local breakfast spot is in an unassuming shopping plaza and has limited seating, but many locals choose to order their favorites and enjoy breakfast on the beach or at a local park. Some of the most popular items on the menu include the Breakfast Burrito, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, and Supreme Waffle. Victory Cafe proudly serves vegan options and has a wide selection of coffees, teas, and specialty drinks.  


Stroll The NoHo Arts District 

After you eat, head to the North Hollywood Arts District and browse the street art, art galleries, theaters, and museums. Catch a show, take a selfie in front of the incredible murals, grab a coffee or a slice of pizza, or browse some of the eclectic shops like Blastoff Comics, Iguana Vintage, or Kathy’s E Boutique.  


City Walk  

If you’re in the mood to party, head to Universal Studios City Walk for a night on the town. This vibrant party center features a state-of-the-art movie theater, a variety of bars and restaurants, retail shops, and live music, Citywalk is free to explore, but there are parking fees and most of the nightclubs charge for admission. Other ways to enjoy Citywalk include skydiving in a vertical wind tunnel at iFLY Hollywood and jamming out to the free outdoor concerts! 


Go On A Hike 

Start your Sunday with an adventure and explore one of the many hiking trails that weave through the Valley. Runyon Canyon and Griffith Park are popular with locals and tourists alike, but other parks like  Brand ParkStough Canyon, and O'Melveny Park offer gorgeous landscapes, challenging trails, nature centers, and the opportunity to see wildlife, rock formations, and panoramic city views.  


Sidewalk Food Tour 

There are so many great restaurants in the Valley and it can seem almost impossible to pick just a few to try on the weekends. If you can’t decide, sign up for a Sidewalk Food Tour. A local and knowledgeable guide will take you on a three-hour walking tour with stops at six highly-rated restaurants. Meet new people, try new food, and learn more about how each restaurant influences the local community. Some of the stops on the Downtown LA walking tour include:  


  • Pitchoun Bakery: Authentic French boulangerie in the heart of Downtown LA. 

  • Horse Thief BBQ: Succulent Texas-style barbecue in the historic Grand Central Market. 

  • DTLA Cheese: Artisanal cheeses with a fun, modern vibe. 

  • Berlin Currywurst: A taste of Germany’s favorite street food with an LA twist! 


These walking tours are inspired by a deep love for good food and how they influence the culture of a city  


Bottom Line 

It’s impossible to see everything San Fernando Valley has to offer in a single weekend. But if you lived here, you’d be able to explore all the nooks and crannies of this scenic city anytime you wanted. If you’re still looking for an apartment to rent in the San Fernando Valley that puts you close to all of the action, take a virtual tour of NMS West Hills today!
