Pacific Palisades, or "Pali," is a small town, hidden between Santa Monica, Malibu and Brentwood. A television show was made based on the town, although it did not resemble the town whatsoever. Most youth residents raised there learn to surf from age 7 and attend private schools such as the Palisades Village School. Dress code is prodimantly beach preppy wear dominated by designers LaCoste, Tretorns and Ralph Lauren. Many residents are Jewish and connected to the entertainment industry, and the few minorities are of Asian decent. Will Rogers's name is every where, and the Paul Getty Museum is the pride of Pali. Homes are expensive and zoning limits multiple dwelling. The town is much like New Canaan, CT transplated surfside on the westcoast. Neighboring Brentwood would be equivalent to Greenwich, CT.
Her best memories of Pacific Palisades included: senior day at Pali High to go surf with the kids from Samo (Santa Monica High School), lunches at Mort's, ice cream at Baskin Robbins, shopping at Gelson's for fruit, buying surfboards from Maui & Son's, and shopping on Montana Avenue.
The best neighborhood free from the gridlock traffic that plagues the rest of Los Angeles. Many families, lots of the rich & famous and high performing business/community leaders. Not many apartments and the entry level house is $1.5-$2.5 million. Although conservative in lifestyle, majority are rabid liberals. Strong community values with excellent participation at all age levels. Beaches are better than Santa Monica or Malibu, but there is no night life, town closes at 9pm sharp. Palisades Patrol is a professional, no nonsense security service that always seems to be aware of what is going on and is jonny on the spot at any incident. Oustanding hiking and mountain biking routes.
Pacific Palisades Youth baseball games on Saturday, Palisades patrol runs a bike patrol in the village, Governor lives in town, Tom Hanks, Goldie Hawn, Steven Speilberg are residents, Honorary Mayor is Steve Guttenberg and previous mayors were Anthony Hopkins and Walter Matthau. Great open space parks lead to the entire Santa Monica Mountains.
The Pacific Palisades is a very very rich area of Los Angeles. Most of the kids that live in the Palisades go to exclusive private schools like Windward Harvard Westlake Archer Crossroads and Wildwood. There are a lot of celebrities who live in the Palisades and the area is divided into certain neighborhoods: the riviera, the hunington, the highlands, and the area called marquez (in my opinion the nicest) by the beach. The Palisades is a lovely little family community only for extremely rich people.
"Hey dude, does that girl live in the Pacific Palisades?"
"Yeah her parents are millionaires."
A place in West LA that falls between Malibu and Santa Monica. There are 4 main sections of the Palisades: 1. The Riviera(between Amalfi and Capri) 2. The Highlands(any home off of Palisades Drive) 3. Downtown (anything near the center) 4. The Huntington (between the riviera and downtown). For the most part the Palisades is liberal and a celebrity hub. The locals are extremely proud to be from P-Town. There is a 50/50 mix between private and public school kids in the Palisades. Overall its home but it's not where most locals spend their Saturday nights.
You'll never guess who I saw today in Pacific Palisades....
All these definitions are shit probably written by tourists or the old hogs of the palisades. Do you want to have a look at the real palisades?
Whoever said the palisades patrol is always on top of everything? Oh ya sure kids will be walking around at FOUR in the morning and they will rarely do shitt about it. It's a waste of money and its not like we even need them.
Village green is also known for as stoner island, where kids do various drugs including weed.
The teenagers have various spots where they smoke weed and hide their alcohol.
The town is infested with small children thinking they are so cool for walking into town after school, old grandmas shopping at the market, soccer moms barreling through the rodes in their giant SUVS, teenagers skateboarding and hanging out at starbucks, mobile mart, or CVS and people having sex in the starbucks bathrooms.
Overall the palisades is quite a nice town with nice resteraunts and houses. But the teenagers deffinatley have their secret ways.
Pacific Palisades Teenager 1:Lets go smoke some weed tonight.
Pacific Palisades Teenager 2: sounds good. usual at the bluffs?
Teenager 1: Ya i hid some of my vodka in my neighbors bushes let's get that too.
Teenager 2: Great ill go call a few ppl.
A small suburb next to Santa Monica, California. The worst possible place to live as a teen. Lots of undercover drug and alcohol use. Filled with snobby celebrities and small children who usually attend private school. No night life.
person 1: hey where do you live?
person 2: pacific palisades
person 1: so your like rich?
Sure, the Palisades can be full of rich snobs... especially in the Highlands. You can find the local teens doing various things from doing drugs at 3 am in the village green to being at Pali High's football games.
One thing that gets at me are the middle schoolers who attend the games, and try to act "cool" after school at starbucks or something. They usually go to the park, woo yay fun!
There are tons of snobby rich kids.
Half the kids there are tumblr hipsters and the rest are stoners.
The amount of soccer moms in yoga pants makes you feel awkward.
Don't even consider living there.
Pacific Palisades girl 1: I'm going to hang out in the village after school, want to come?
Pacific Palisades girl 2: Sure! Can we watch the skateboarders in the park afterwards?
