Culver City has undergone gentrification over the past decade, emerging as a vibrant, artistically inclined community with Sony Pictures at its center. The downtown area offers plenty of dining choices, a fun sidewalk fountain for kids, and the historic Culver Hotel where the Munchkins stayed while filming The Wizard of Oz. But Culver City has kept its signature quirks, as you'll see in the Museum of Jurassic Technology and the Star Eco Station, a wildlife refuge center. The Actor's Gang is one of California's most respected theater companies, and stages its shows in Culver City's historic Ivy Substation.
Getting Around Los Angeles
The best way to get around Los Angeles is by car. There is an excellent public transportation system available as an alternative, but generally L.A. is best covered by car. No one walks in L.A., except on the beach.
