Sylmar is a neighborhood on the far northwest side of Los Angeles. The area is bordered to the west by Highway 5, and the Foothill Freeway runs through the center of Sylmar. The former can lead travelers into the city center. While public transportation is limited, biking in the neighborhood is a great option. The weather is typically warmer than the rest of LA, but the San Fernando Road Bike Path is still a nice ride. 

MB2 Raceway is a local attraction that brings in those who love to drive fast. This indoor karting facility has courses for those of all levels from easy to challenging. The staff there uses a points system to inform each driver how they performed during a race. 

Sylmar has a wide selection of Hispanic restaurants that serve authentic cuisine. Shopping is limited in the neighborhood, though residents can find basic needs, such as grocery stores.

Gonzales Gallery features several shows at one time from residential artists. Stop in to view the work or make a purchase for your new place.

The historic Adobes of LA are structures built as early as the 1800s. The LA Casa DE Geronimo Lopez is in the Sylmar neighborhood and is an example of local history.
