Culver City was founded in 1917 by Harry Culver, who created a ‘live and work’ community for the newly-created film industry. It’s come full circle in the 21st Century by becoming a haven for tech businesses and a home for innovators. The old city motto “The Heart of Screenland” has been upgraded to the heart of ‘streamland’ where content creators are setting up headquarters.
Culver City has an outstanding school district with a focus on arts education, a thriving recreation scene with 12 parks, and a major public art program with dozens of murals, sculptures and installations throughout the city. The renowned restaurant scene has everything from the gourmet tasting menu at Vespertine to the old school favorite Tito’s Tacos. Bicycle culture thrives with designated bikes lanes and landscaped bike paths through the city, including the Ballona Creek bike path to the beach.
We have been covering all the best of Culver City since 2009, with city council and school district news along with theater and arts coverage, restaurant reviews at CC Foodie, and a spotlight on the good works from all the local service clubs.
