Pacific Palisades is an affluent neightborhood on the West Side of Los Angeles in Southern California. The district is a primarily residential area with expensive houses amongst the hills offering incredible ocean views.
Pacific Palisades does not have an airport or runways.
The town is accessible via the Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1; often abbreviated "PCH"), or by traveling along famed Sunset Boulevard, which acts as a north-south pass-through and terminates on the northern boundary of the town itself. Temescal Canyon Blvd. originates at PCH and permits an easterly approach into the middle of town.
You will be competing for space along the same access routes for vehicular traffic. Unless you are a capable urban cyclist, travel along Sunset Blvd. and PCH is not advised. Temescal Canyon Blvd. presents a long, steep grade, and you would do well to make sure your braking system is in tip-top shape should you double back!
Foot traffic from the coastline is common, especially during good weather. Both the north entrance into town via Sunset Blvd. and the uphill east entrance along Temescal Canyon Blvd. have uninterrupted sidewalks. The south entrance does not have clearly-marked walkways for at least 200 yards (180 meters) measured from the south border of town--walking along either side of Sunset Blvd. is very dangerous and ill-advised.
