Sherman Oaks balances urban attitudes with suburban amenities - speeding cars contrast sharply with the slow sway of palm trees in this San Fernando Valley neighborhood. The city seamlessly blends the suburban lifestyle with urban influences through its smattering of hip cafes, boutiques and restaurants, all of which are usually just minutes away from Ventura Boulevard.
When you truly want to embrace your location in the Valley, visit the Sherman Oaks Galleria - it's the real-life setting where "Valley Girl" was filmed. In addition, Sherman Oaks also has another large shopping center - the Westfield Fashion Square. Between the two, there's no shortage of great shopping and fantastic dining! Take a little drive down Ventura Boulevard, however, and you'll find just about anything your heart desires, culinarily speaking. From Mexican food to BBQ to trendy healthy fare, Sherman Oaks has you covered!
And what if you're more family oriented? Well, you've got the Van Nuys-Sherman Oak Park, which has jogging tracks, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, and grassy areas perfect for picnics. And if your family is into arcade games and miniature golf, then head north on Sepulveda Boulevard, right past the Sherman Oaks Galleria, where you'll find Sherman Oaks Castle Park!
