Welcome to where Mexican culture lives. In Boyle Heights, there's a know your neighbors way of living, and many families have proudly held roots there for generations.
Located just two miles east of Downtown, Boyle Heights is one of LA's oldest neighborhoods. It boasts lots of green, the Metro Gold Line, and a traditional Mexican culture that remains one of its many claims to fame. Neighborhood locals and "travelers for food" from LA and beyond queue up at taco trucks and restaurants in this neighborhood known by many for dishing-up the most authentic Mexican food in LA. And arts portraying cultural pride stand center stage throughout the neighborhood. Driving through the streets is a lesson in history. Architecture points to the diversity of housing in Boyle Heights, where turn-of-the-century gems sit next to neat craftsmans. In the 1950's Boyle Heights was largely Japanese, and though only one Japanese restaurant remains, one can easily find homes and churches built in the Japanese style. And the neighborhood has Hollenbeck Park, where visitors flock for its duck-filled lake, cozy green nooks, and skate park.
