An historic LA street in the Valley filled with shops and dining spots.
Ventura Boulevard is one of the oldest routes in the San Fernando Valley. Before becoming the street it's known as today, it used to be part of El Camino Real, a trail that connected Spanish missions. It was also the original U.S. Route 101 before the freeway was built, but it does run parallel to this highway.
The boulevard goes through Calabasas, Tarzana, Encino, Sherman Oaks, and Studio City, and is filled with mom and pop shops that are a must to explore.
