Nothing beats fresh air, a nice drive, and a sunset. Luckily, everyone living at VIDA luxury apartments for rent in Studio City can indulge in all three of these almost any day of the year. While we can guarantee a calming sunset all year round, not all sunset views in Los Angeles are created equal. Here are some of our favorites.

Where to Find the Best Sunset Views in Los Angeles Around Studio City

The Venice Canals

You often think the beach will be your best bet to catch a sunset around your luxury apartments for rent in Studio City. While we love Venice beach, our favorite spot in the Venice area to watch the sun go down is the Venice Canals. There is a tiny bridge and an adorable path to walk along. It will make you feel like you are in another country! Any guesses where that might be?

The Santa Monica Pier

It wouldn’t be right to exclude a beach vantage point on this list. The closest to your Studio City apartments would be the Santa Monica Pier. The pier is located at the end of Route 66. Speaking of cruising, feel free to enjoy that sunset while driving down the PCH! Before you drive back home, make sure to stay awhile after the sun goes down to see the Ferris wheel on the pier light up. Fun fact, the light show on the Ferris wheel is different every night!

The Griffith Observatory / Griffith Park

It is fair to say that sunsets and picnics go very well together, especially from one of the most popular Los Angeles landmarks since its opening in 1935. There are so many different vantage points throughout Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory. No matter where you decide to park and enjoy your sunset picnic, you will find unobstructed views of Downtown LA, the Pacific Ocean, and the famous Hollywood Sign. Make sure to check the Griffith Observatory website to see when they reopen. In the meantime, you can still have your sunset picnic from Griffith Park.

Mulholland Drive Sunset Views in Los Angeles

There are a handful of vantage points along the iconic Mulholland Drive. With that in mind, any of them facing the west towards the Santa Monica mountains will give you the sunset you desire without having to drive far. Do know that this is one of the closest vantage points from your VIDA apartments in Los Angeles. 

Ascot Hills Park

Don’t forget that your apartments in Studio City are just around the corner from the Metro on Lankershim! We suggest riding the Metro for our next sunset spot in downtown Los Angeles. Ascot Hills Park is just east of downtown LA and offers a great view of the Downtown skyline with gorgeous tall grass in the foreground.

The Best Sunset Views in Los Angeles

We are so blessed to live in a city with various vantage points. All of these spots are great for sunrises for all you early birds living in Studio City. If you are looking to have a run while the sun rises, we would suggest the Nancy Pohl Scenic Overlook since it attaches to a trail.
