Default What's the best family unfriendly area for older single people?

I currently live in Larchmont Village, which is a great area. The thing I hate about it though is it's full of strollers and Moderator cut: offensive on weekends. My building has a rare single family home next door where young kids scream and cry all the time. Can't leave the windows open and it's annoying.

I'm in my late 30's, I travel for work during the week, and want peace and quiet when I'm at home. When I do go out I don't want to be around a bunch of kids, strollers, dogs, etc.

Where is a good place for me to live in the LA area? Not a lot of kids around, somewhat quiet, stuff to do nearby, etc.

Any of the affluent beach communities? But then you're dealing with loud, obnoxious trust fund kids. Guess you're stuck with downtown LA

Wilshire Corridor condos. I'd also say Marina del Rey, but that area is very pet friendly, so if you're averse to dogs not a good choice.

Oh wait... you said "older" so I thought older, not "late 30's" (which is the new late 20's). Guess you'll have to wait a few years...

Los Feliz.

Nary a child in sight. And rarely teens too.

South Park downtown LA...the area near Staples Center. The area closer to 8th and 9th is nice also, with few children. But theres also a lot of 18-25 year olds and those might be just as anoying.

Maybe Toluca Lake would suit you well?

Silver Lake, also.

On the other side of L.A., Marina Del Rey has most likely the oldest median age of any L.A. neighborhood. It's filled with the elderly. And the noise factor won't be that great - the exception being in certain areas which I would consider to be Venice but which sometimes are advertised as MDR.

I asked someone the same thing as I'm early 30s and single. I was told Studio City. Don't know if they were right or not.

Downtown LA sounds about right. Most are late 20s or 30s here. Just get a higher up Loft so that you don't get the street noise, but most people here are just like you. I live here as well.
