If you look from an airplane, you can’t miss this neighborhood with its distinctive abundant trees and green space. At the golden hour, locals take a drive or a stroll down this peaceful area, enjoying the sunlight twinkling through the leaves, the perfect place for a nature lover.

Things to Know

Although the area around Sunset Place is walkable, about half the population commutes to work. Using public transit is not very common, and the city does not have a free trolley at this time.

Weekends can get quite busy as locals and visitors head to the restaurants, so it helps to arrive early to find the best parking.
