Westwood is located in the more affluent West Side of Los Angeles. The busy Westwood neighborhood encompasses the sprawling UCLA campus and the Westwood Village. It is a vibrant community, with leafy streets and great cafes, restaurants, and shops.
No trip to Westwood would be complete without visiting the Westwood Village Theatre, which was originally built in 1930. Many Hollywood blockbusters have premiered at the theatre, and it's a great place for catching the latest blockbuster.
For a further culture fix, the Hammer Museum has an enormous variety of paintings and creative exhibitions and there's a beautiful sculpture garden.
If you're in Westwood on a Thursday, you should check out Westwood Village’s farmers' market, where you can enjoy locally grown produce, live music, great coffee, and handmade crafts.
Many people use Westwood as a base to explore some of L.A's best hotspots, including nearby Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Downtown L.A.
Stay in Westwood if you're looking for a nice, leafy area, and want to base yourself away from the busy, classic L.A vacation destinations. You can find all types of home rentals and hotel options here.
Westwood is blessed with sunny Californian weather. Summers are hot and dry. Visit in May or September when accommodation prices are lower.
