North Valley

North Valley is the northern region of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. It is made up of the neighborhoods of Arleta, Granada Hills, Lakeview Terrace, Mission Hills, Northridge, North Hills, Pacoima, Panorama City, Sun Valley, Sunland, Sylmar, Tujunga, and the city of San Fernando.

Understand

North Hills is mainly residential but has a few sites of minor note including the Sepulveda Unitarian-Universalist Society (nicknamed 'The Onion' for its appearance) and Bull Creek (where the motorcycle chase scene in Terminator 2 was filmed). North Hills has a deserved reputation as one of the Valley's major gang hotspots. Although generally safe during the day, exercise caution in this area at night.

Get in

The 405 Freeway runs north-south through North Hills. Exits in North Hills are on Roscoe and Nordhoff.

Northridge has a Metrolink Station at 8775 Wilbur Ave. Service is Monday-Friday on the Ventura County Line.

Sleep

Sepulveda Boulevard in North Hills is lined with cheap motels. Most of them used to cater to prostitution and drug activity but claim to have cleaned up. You should stay at them with low expectations.
