Welcome to Topanga
Topanga is famed for its tall oaks, bohemian sensibilities and secluded homes. L.A.’s most mercurial canyon, the shade of the hills gives way to golden sunlight. It streams through outstretched branches and dapples the handful of shops, hiking trails, restaurants and the length of Topanga Canyon Boulevard, which connects the Pacific Coast Highway to Woodland Hills.
New cafés and an influx of artists, from A-list performers to clothing designers moving (or already living) into the area for its authentic community feel have added magic to this region. Experience Topanga, old and new, with its iconic scenic drives, far-enough-yet-not-so-far location and daily escape from the sprawling city.
Ridiculously romantic restaurants, vintage roadside boutiques stocked with house-made pastas and locally sourced honey, chocolate, produce, baked goods, granola and more, home decor mixing boho style with vintage items, Topanga is a true gem!
As stunning as the drive through the canyon may be, some of Topanga’s most awe-inducing scenery is best enjoyed on foot. Topanga State Park is home to 36 miles of trails, with treks past forests and up mountain peaks featuring panoramic views of the Pacific.
Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum, a Topanga fixture since 1973, brings classic and contemporary pieces to life on an open-air stage. The stage also hosts regular children’s and adults’ theatre workshops and drama camps.
