Canoga Park is located in Los Angeles County in the San Fernando Valley, just minutes from the ocean and 25 miles northwest of Los Angeles. If you're employed with the city's many retail, commerce or aerospace industries, multiple Canoga Park apartments are available within easy reach of these businesses, as well as the city's thriving arts scene.
Canoga Park is home to a thriving aerospace industry. Pratt and Whitney Rocketdyne and Boeing Rocketdyne are two of the city's biggest employers. If you're moving to Canoga Park to work for either of these businesses, search for apartments on the northwest side of town to be near Pratt and Whitney and the south side of town to be near Boeing Rocketdyne.
Work is for the living, but the annual Dia de los Muertos Festival is to celebrate the dead. Each November in Main Street Canoga Park, join thousands of other Canoga Park residents at the exciting Day of the Dead Festival, where you'll find live music, beer, street vendors, altars, prizes, food and fun for the whole family. After the festival, you may want to walk home to your Canoga Park apartments to make sure you're still alive.
Proceeds from the festival benefit the Canoga Park Retail District, a pedestrian-friendly, thriving arts and antiques district in downtown Canoga Park. Check out R Furniture, an antiques store specializing in French, Spanish and Italian furniture; Collectible Glitz, a vintage jewelry store with costume jewelry from the 1920s through the 1980s; or Cobalt Cafe, an all-ages, nonalcoholic live music venue. If you live in downtown Canoga Park apartments, these shops could be right outside your door.
If you want to dine out or just don't want to cook in your apartment kitchen, eat at one of Canoga Park's most beloved restaurants. Impress your date at Go's Mart, an upscale sushi bar featuring seared Kobe beef and the freshest fish with accompaniments such as white truffles, truffle oil, gold flakes and real caviar. Those garnishes will cost you, though - expect to pay $5-$10 per piece. For the more budget-conscious, stop by Stone Oven for the warm foccacia, fresh salads and the barbecue beef sandwich, loaded with melted cheese, crispy onions and avocado slices. For more cheap eats, check out El Taco Llama for its carne asada tacos and massive salsa and salad bar.
