"A Smashing Pumpkin of a City" Calabasas by marinarena
Calabasas Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 47 photos
Calabasas, "pumpkins" in Spanish, is a little ranch town that is only about 40 min drive from the center of Los Angeles, still within county limits.
She is not the typical suburb of LA. in that there is a touch of the rural life in her. One can find adobe (ranch), as well as horse trails in the old downtown area. But just when one thinks that it stampedes what is suburbia, alas, she proves otherwise with the trite and opulent shopping area- The Commons!
Hollywood-like Tidbit: Calabasas is where Jennifer Lopez got married (for the second time). Well, the 2nd marriage did not last but the romance of Calabasas continues!
More to come!
- Pros:away from the jungle that is Los Angeles, close to beaches and mountains/hills
- Cons:the tranquility is lessening due to celebrities moving in and paparazzi haunting them!
- In a nutshell:Calabasas is a smashing town of natural beauty worthy to see, just outside of Los Angeles!
Oh, the lovely white flowers so perfect beside the brick buildings!!! more travel advice
Stumble upon a ranch/museum, just minutes from the city of Los Angeles, and an hour+ from Santa Barbara!! Happy to say... more travel advice
