Stop By Encino the Next Time You Visit Los Angeles

Monday, February 6th, 2017 by Nick Cohen

new-construction-ABC-Los-AngelesLos Angeles has lots of wonderful neighborhoods to explore, and one of our favorites is often overlooked. Encino, a Spanish term for “evergreen” or “holm oak,” was named after the beautiful oak trees found in the valley—or perhaps just one in particular.
