About Van Nuys and Places to Visit
Located only a few miles from Los Angeles, Van Nuys is a popular gateway city for direct access to the star-studded attractions of Los Angeles. For active leisure travelers, there are several natural settings to explore in the area around Van Nuys in a variety of settings that include canyon trails, gardens and coastal beaches.
Aviation enthusiasts can enjoy several sites in Los Angeles that tell the story of the region’s historic and important role in aviation and aerospace. The Burbank Aviation Museum features a collection of restored vintage aircraft and other memorabilia that was collected with the help of the aviation community. The California Science Center’s collection includes a replica 1902 Wright Glider, an A-12 Blackbird spy plane and three NASA space capsules. The Center’s most popular attraction is the Space Shuttle Endeavour, one of four space shuttles on public display in the United States.
Rated as one of the top Japanese Gardens in North America, SuihoEn is in downtown Van Nuys. At nearly seven acres, the garden is cultivated to emulate a traditional garden design referred to as Chisen-Kaiyushiki, or “wet garden with promenade” from Japan’s feudal era of the 18th and 19th centuries. The Japanese Garden is designed for the senses, from the gentle flow of water from ponds and fountains, the sweet aromatic scent of cherry blossoms to the peaceful contemplation of simple, clean lines that make this garden a tranquil retreat in all seasons.
If you decide to explore the coast, take time to enjoy an afternoon drive along the Pacific Coast Highway (also known as U.S. Route 101) to explore the charm of coastal communities, including Venice Beach, Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey.
The primary airport that serves the city is Van Nuys Airport (VNY). The airport is 3.3 miles from downtown Van Nuys.
