Welcome to Culver City
A dynamic, family-friendly city on the outskirts of Los Angeles
The innovative and technology-centered neighborhood of Culver City is bursting with activity. With a population of just over 40,000, this creative city has everything you could want in one neighborhood. The excellent transportation system is a lifesaver for commuters, walkable streets make shopping a breeze, and catching an event in the vibrant Culver City Arts District is a favorite way for the locals to explore the best of downtown living.
Incorporated in 1917, Culver City was destined to become the “Heart of Screenland.” Harry H. Culver made big plans for this area by bringing the movie-making business to the neighborhood. Classic films like Gone With the Wind, Citizen Kane, and The Wizard of Oz were filmed here and today, Culver City is home to Sony Pictures Studios and The Culver Studios. Located outside of Los Angeles, Culver City is an eclectic, energetic, and affordable place to live with dozens of opportunities to explore a classic California lifestyle.
