Like all the neighborhoods we've been looking at this week, Culver City is action-packed and transit-accessible. Unlike the other neighborhoods, though, it's on the Westside, because we hear some people are into that kind of thing. CC is known for its historic studios, its art galleries, its Father's Office burgers, its live theater, and most of all for its wonderful Museum of Jurassic Technology. The city also has loads of parks, the Cold War-focused Wende Museum, plus plenty of shopping in the Helms Bakery complex and Westfield mall. It's family friendly, with larger, more suburban-style rental units (like bungalows) and high-ish rents. (Median for a two-bedroom is $2,497, according to listing site Lovely.) See below for all the stats on renting in the neighborhood, plus some sample listings.
-- A second-story studio in a 20-unit building close to downtown with utilities included. Rent is $1,175.
-- A one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage with hardwood floors and dining area. Rent is $1,895.
-- A two-bedroom, one-bathroom front house with hardwood, carpet, and tile. Rent is $2,700.
