Top 20 Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Although it's often lumped together with the rest of Hollywood Hills, Laurel Canyon is a quiet and hip neighbourhood that has its own community and history that separates it from the rest of Los Angeles and Hollywood Hills. The hills and the slowly swaying eucalyptus trees seem to protect the peaceful neighbourhood’s residents from the bedlam of West Hollywood below. In the 1960s and 70s, this solitude and natural beauty drew the likes of Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash, John Mayall, the Byrds, Neil Young, Carole King and other artists, transforming the area into a hub for the counterculture and folk-rock movements. The area retains a lovely, friendly atmosphere even now - each year the whole community comes together for a festival and a portrait that is then displayed in the Canyon Store. It's also extremely well located for both Studio City and West Hollywood.
