Welcome to Sherman Oaks
Sherman Oaks is much like its San Fernando Valley neighbor, Encino: a quiet LA suburb that allows for city convenience with small town peacefulness. High-end malls and a smattering of hip boutiques and restaurants are a draw for the families who call Sherman Oaks home, and the neighborhood has a reputation for being part of the affluent area of the Valley.
