Stretching along the north slope of the Santa Monica Mountains, Encino residents stay busy as they venture between their area's suburban strip malls and central Los Angeles' urban outskirts. In this self-contained city, scoping out clearance sales is as common as picnicking at one of its many green spaces. Mostly quiet and totally conducive to car transportation, Encino offers a sunny respite far away from Downtown for Valley Girls and Valley Guys alike.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
