Getting Around West Los Angeles
Around West Los Angeles
You can easily find a luxurious townhouse in the neighborhood, but expect to pay a premium to live there. A majority of the inner neighborhood consists of single-family homes, which explains the highly competitive real estate prices. West Los Angeles is a great place for young couples and families to settle down in Los Angeles. Most of the beautiful condominiums and detached homes are found between Pico and Olympic. Prices will increase the closer you get towards the main streets. However, for more affordable housing, head to the 405 freeway, where the vibe becomes noisier, less developed, and urban.
West Los Angeles is a convenient place to have a casual lunch or dinner at fair prices. With a multitude of culturally diverse food options such as Japanese, Mediterranean, Mexican, Italian, and even Turkish - deciding where to eat is always a difficult decision. Walking along Pico Boulevard, you can feast on sushi, pasta, tacos, koobideh, and churros. West Los Angeles is also walking distance away from the ever popular Japantown, formerly known as Little Osaka on Sawtelle, which is home to several popular Japanese American restaurants and boutique shops.
UCLA students and freelancers on their computers at local cafes and coffee shops, people walking on the streets holding several shopping bags, or a nicely dressed young couple heading to one of the many restaurants for dinner. Inside the neighborhoods, you can see many people taking their dogs out for a walk or recent graduates visiting their friends.
Streets are fairly quiet on a Friday night, unless a popular movie is premiering at The Landmark Theater in Westside Pavilion or people are walking home from a late-night dinner. The Friday night crowd tends to veer towards the more subdued. Although there are a few lively bars along Pico Boulevard, West Los Angeles has a very low-key night life.
Watch a movie or go on a shopping spree at the famous Westside Pavilion, where parking is easy to find and department stores are plentiful. For a more laid back Sunday, bring your family to visit Stoner Recreational Park, and play basketball or tennis, go swimming, visit their dog park or hold a barbeque at one of their picnic tables.
