Westlake Village, California is a suburb of Los Angeles, bordering Ventura. Though the mention of California typically conjures up images of sandy beaches and hip surfers, there is a lot of beauty to be found inland, at places like Westlake Village also.
One of the most unique things to do in Westlake Village is to visit the Reyes Adobe Historical Site -- a home built in 1850 that still stands today as a living museum providing a valuable glimpse as to what life was like in the 18th century.
Those that love hiking and adventure will be blown away by the opportunities at Westlake Village. One great choice is the nearby Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area which contains trails that extend over 500 miles leading through rocky terrain and mountainous scenery. The range of activities here ia diverse. Essentially, the park is a combination of green open spaces, parklands and uphill trails offering routes for all ability levels. For less strenuous exercise, the Russell Ranch park leads through scenic gardens and is a nice way to pass an afternoon.
Owing to California's Mediterranean climate, Westlake is a pleasant place to visit all year round.
