San Vicente Boulevard

San Vicente Boulevard in Los Angeles, California is a main road running northwest to southeast. The road was built in the earlier 20th century. It was originally called Rancho San Vicente y Santa Monica. It was built on land from the Soldiers' Home Sawtelle Veterans Home running to Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. The street is 130 feet wide with trolley lines and traffic capabilities. As of 1906 it was considered "one of the finest" roads to drive because it was oiled and surfaced.

Today the boulevard starts at Venice Boulevard near Crenshaw and La Brea Avenue. It travels towards Beverly Hills before the road splits into two in order to get past La Cienega Boulevard. The western section of the road turns into Burton Way and eventually Santa Monica Boulevard South. San Vicente Boulevard continues to West Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard, where it ends. Due to the name also being used for a route from Santa Monica to Brentwood it can be slightly confusing when looking for addresses. The highway also changes in numbering such as some areas being only odd numbers. Shops and businesses run along the road providing places of entertainment for visitors and residents.
