Get the door, it's the liquor store
Lynwood is barely 20 minutes south of Downtown Los Angeles, but it’s easy to see why the little city has... made such a name for itself. Part of it, no doubt, is Weird Al Yankovich’s 2006 chart-topping album Straight Outta Lynwood, which he named for his hometown. Part of its magic is that Lynwood birthed other celebs like Kevin Costner, Venus Williams, Leslie Jones and others. But it's also got some serious street cred as the closest neighbor to Compton, where much of the best hip-hop in music history was born. Lynwood’s got some gorgeous Mission-revival architecture, quiet neighborhoods and shopping and restaurants galore. Interstate 105 runs through like an artery, depositing and receiving drivers at Long Beach Boulevard. Walk the streets, soak up the sunshine and feel the energy of one of the greatest cities on earth humming around you.
