Sherman Oaks balances urban attitudes with suburban amenities—speeding cars contrast sharply with the slow sway of palm trees in this San Fernando Valley neighborhood. Although this congenial neighborhood isn't known for its trendiness, a smattering of hip cafes and boutiques are always close by on Ventura Boulevard. When you truly want to embrace your location in the Valley, visit the Sherman Oaks Galleria—it's the real-life setting where "Valley Girl" was filmed. Like, awesome to the max!See places to stay Save this neighborhood
