North Hollywood is one of the first neighborhoods you'll encounter when you head “over the hill” into the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. While much of entertainment history has taken place in the area, it has undergone a renaissance as of late with a slew of new destination points for daytime hangs, kitschy shopping and eclectic nightlife. Journey through all the cultural offerings North Hollywood has available, as there are a slew of creative mediums being showcased at a variety of venues in the North Hollywood Arts District. A great part about this microcosm of the San Fernando Valley is that it's entirely accessible right now thanks to the Metro Los Angeles. Just take the red line all the way north and you'll end up right in the center of all the action.
