Gate 26: Your Essential Guide to Things to do in Los Angeles This Weekend

If you’re looking for a peaceful new Los Angeles home in an amazing location at the heart of everything, Gate 26 by Williams Homes might just be the perfect match for you. This brand-new gated community of townhomes in Valley Village boasts sleek, modern architecture and smart living spaces—plus, a dog park for your four-legged friends. Here is where the serenity of home and the beat of the city converge, promising daily life to be anything but ordinary.

Location. We won’t say it three times.

The Valley Village neighborhood sits in the center of it all. Surround yourself with bountiful new and exciting spots to shop and dine in your own neighborhood, plus Hollywood to the east and Sherman Oaks to the west. This prime location also provides quick access to freeways and transportation hubs, so your daytrips (and beyond) will be epic—no matter what activity strikes your fancy.

Go places!

When you want to explore beyond your neighborhood, the Metro Orange Line is just a few blocks away—no need to move your car away from home. Valley Village is also not too far from three of LA’s major freeways, so you can easily hop on the 101, Interstate 5, and 405. Jet setters, fear not—Gate 26 is less than five miles from the Hollywood/Burbank airport. Never let traffic foil your impromptu travel again!

Where to be, much to see.

There are so many things to do in LA—after all, it is the largest city in California. This vibrant, diverse place is full of arts and culture in literally every direction. Love the museum scene? Take advantage of your proximity to the Getty, or meander through the inevitably instagramable exhibits at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Hosting guests from out of town? Take them to Universal Studios for the day, or enjoy a concert (and a picnic!) at the Hollywood Bowl. You can also book a tour at the nearby CBS Studio Center. Theater buffs, the NoHo Arts District is made for you. Grab dinner at one of the many delicious cafes or gastropubs, and catch your favorite show. If a vintage aesthetic is your thing, you’ll probably want to do some shopping, too.

Sun’s out, fun’s out.

Taking advantage of the incredible Southern California climate could not be easier. No matter your speed of outdoor adventure—from leisurely strolls to intense hiking—LA has you covered. The abundance of amazing parks, gardens, activities and historical sites here is unparalleled, with several of our fave spots just a short jaunt from Valley Village. Hike amongst the rich eucalyptus of renowned Laurel Canyon, explore the lush Hollywood Hills, or take a walk through Griffith Park. If you’re feeling sporty, the Weddington Golf & Tennis club is just two miles south. For more family-centric enjoyment, you’ll find premier mini golf and batting cages just down the road at Sherman Oaks Castle Park. And if you’re seeking something not-so-conventional, you can check out the Woodley Park Archery Range!

Shop ‘til you drop.

Looking for a unique, fashion-forward shopping experience? The Americana at Brand is just 30 minutes away from home. This trendsetters’ open-air haven is full of boutiques, pop-up shops, and restaurants—plus a new AMC theater. In need of a more traditional variety of stores? The Glendale Galleria is nearby too, so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
