Experience the coastal California lifestyle you always promised yourself, where the Pacific greets the pristine shoreline of Sunset Beach, the cascading bluffs of the Santa Monica Mountains and the many cultural amenities of Pacific Palisades.
From its small-town charm to its unique collection of chic boutiques, shops and restaurants, Pacific Palisades delights at every turn. And, come December, our coveted neighborhood and surrounding areas—aglow with city lights and excitement for the holiday events ahead—are that much more magical. Below, take a look at the local not-to-miss festivities this month.
This December, trade in sand for snow—LA-style. From November 29 through December 24 at 6pm-7pm, Visit Palisades Village to grab a hot cocoa, get in your last-minute holiday shopping in and watch the scenic setting transform into a winter wonderland as snow falls from the sky.
Sip and stroll through the Brentwood Country Mart for seasonal treats and bites, holiday shopping, complimentary cookie decorating, gift wrapping and live music. This festive, family-friendly event takes place on December 6 from 5pm-8pm and works to raise donations for Baby2Baby.

Plus, the towering Christmas tree and nightly menorah lightings are a truly special spectacle.
