To put it simply, Eagle Rock rocks. Named after it's most prominent natural feature, this neighborhood is serious about preserving it's small town vibe. Local ordinances protect small businesses in the downtown Colorado Blvd. shopping district, which means this enclave will maintain its local, down-to-earth community vibe for years to come.
Spend a day here: Have breakfast at local greasy spoon, Armon's Coffee Shop. Then, spend the afternoon taking in nature, hiking the Eagle Rock Canyon up to the top of the Eagle Rock itself, a natural outcropping whose shadow resembles an eagle. After you've worked up a sweat, grab a burger at The Oinkster. Then, take in the local shops along Colorado Blvd. - don't miss Letters from LA on Eagle Rock Blvd. Dine in a craftsman bungalow at Little Beast, and have a cocktail at Colombo's, a historic Italian bar full of small town charm. Head over to Center for the Arts Eagle Rock for a concert in the revamped Carnegie-designed library.
