Getting Around Westwood

Around Westwood

UCLA students live on or just off campus in surrounding Westwood. Neighborhoods to the east and west provide upscale classic housing for families. The winding roads along Beverly Glen and Thayer are beautiful but pricey and the Los Angeles Country Club sits in the western corner of Westwood. High-rise options are available on Wilshire Boulevard for young professionals and the south offers quaint, ranch-style homes in quiet, friendly communities.

Westwood is a favorite spot for students to grab a quick cup of coffee and a snack between study sessions. Numerous sports bars are the place to cheer for the local UCLA Bruins on game day. If you're in the mood for something more exotic, try some authentic Brazilian cuisine off Lindbrook Drive or the Persian restaurants along Westwood Boulevard. Westwood Boulevard also offers a number of excellent markets for fresh produce and meat.

Experience the hustle and bustle of higher learning as fresh-faced students walk to class on the sprawling UCLA campus. After class, students can be seen enjoying a lunch in Westwood where sidewalk cafes abound. Head down Santa Monica Boulevard to see the stately structures and sprawling grounds of the Latter Day Saints Temple. Its central tower is topped with a golden statue that can be seen for miles around. Stroll down the quiet, tree-lined streets that bisect the area for a taste of old-time Los Angeles.

Westwood offers some of the best entertainment options in Los Angeles. First, enjoy a night of high culture at the renowned Geffen Playhouse. Built in 1929, this historic theater boasts a colorful history and features up to eight productions a year. If cinema is what you crave, take in a showing at the historic Fox Village Theater. A working movie house with daily showings, this is also the venue for countless movie premieres complete with red carpets and movie stars.

The Hammer Art Museum offers what has been called "the hippest and most culturally relevant institution in town." Particularly focusing on overlooked and emerging artists, this institution is affiliated with the UCLA campus to provide an outlet for amazing new and old artists. Pay your respects to our fallen veterans at the Los Angeles National Cemetery. The verdant grounds are a great place to take a contemplative stroll on a sunny day.
