Description for Topanga

Bring your patchouli, pheasant skirt, and folk music to Topanga Canyon. Don't have any of the above? Come anyway. You're sure to find plenty of artsy culture here. Topanga Canyon (State Highway 27) connects the 101 Freeway in the west San Fernando Valley to the Pacific Coast Highway in picturesque Malibu.

In the 1920's many "Hollywood types" came to Topanga and built guest cottages for weekend getaways. Historically known as an artist and musician colony, this bohemian enclave has been home to the likes of Alice Cooper, Van Morrison, Arlo Guthrie, and many more famous musicians. Neil Young composed his "After the Gold Rush" album in his Topanga "treehouse". Right in line with its bohemian, somewhat hedonistic reputation, Topanga Canyon was home to the Elysium Institute, a 9 acre nudist colony which was up and running until 2002. The club was finally sold in 2002 by heirs of the original owners.

Nudist colonies and hooka bars, not your thing? Don't worry there are plenty of other things to do and see in Topanga. Topanga canyon is home to Topanga Canyon State Park. This is the largest park in the Santa Monica Mountain Conservancy. In fact, it is the largest park in the world to be surrounded by a major city, Los Angeles. Stunning panoramic ocean, mountain, and city views delight hikers, bikers, horseback riders, bird watchers, and mountain climbers. Topanga is extremely conducive to the equestrian lifestyle. Here, you will find Top Line Equestrian Center and plenty other places to board your horse and ride: Fair Hills Farm, Topanga Farm, and Mill Creek Riding Academy to name a few.

On the culinary front, Topanga Canyon hosts many unique dining establishments, both casual and fancy. Visit the Inn of the Seventh Ray for romantic creek side dining or grab a bite at Eden Ranch, Canyon Bistro, or The Watering Cafe. Visit on Memorial Day and you can attend Topanga's annual parade and fair, called "Topanga Days", which is held at the Topanga Community House. With over 80 vendors, music, dancing, and fun, "Topanga Days" has been dubbed as the "Biggest bohemian bash" in Southern California.
