Sherman Oaks is a community loacted within the city of Los Angeles right at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains in the San Fernando Valley. The community is centered around the U.S. Highway 101 and Interstate 405 interchange. Sherman Oaks is a bedroom community that combines the convenience of two nearby freeways with lots of trees and greenery that provide a serene feel to the area.

What to Do in Sherman Oaks

Shoppers looking for a centralized shopping experience can visit one of Sherman Oaks' two large shopping centers. The Sherman Oaks Galleria is a unique structure, housing several shops, restaurants, and a movie theater in one large, open-air building. Shoppers here can peruse the CDs at Tower Records, grab a bite to eat at The Cheesecake Factory, then take in a film at one of Pacific Theatres' 4000 stadium seats.

For those seeking a purer shopping experience, the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square makes quite an attractive destination. This popular indoor mall houses retail outlets such as BCBG Max Azria, Bebe, Rampage, Macy's, and Bloomingdale's. Ventura Boulevard is also lined with shops, boutiques, salons and restaurants.

Because of its proximity to Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks is close to several popular recreational destinations. Santa Monica and Venice are just on the other side of the hill, where people can visit such popular sites as the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, and the Third Street Promenade. A day trip to the beach is a 45-minute drive away and is the perfect escape for the weekend.
