Westwood is a thriving, upscale community located on the west side of Los Angeles near UCLA. The "Westwood Village" area has become one of the most desired places to live within the city. This "city within a city" is a mix of old-world style and cosmopolitan amenities and has much to offer residents and visitors alike. In Westwood, you will find modern architecture alongside Spanish, Tudor and English style homes. Westwood has its own businesses, restaurants, recreation and shopping for visitors, but it is located near the Century City and Brentwood areas of Los Angeles, and therefore has easy access to all these communities have to offer, as well. Other things to do in Westwood include visiting the museums, galleries and boutiques. Or, you can take a sightseeing tour, and a short drive takes you to such exciting locations as Santa Monica, Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Malibu. In Westwood, you are just minutes from all the other southern California attractions like Hollywood, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Venice Beach and more. Westwood is self-contained and has its own village atmosphere and community spirit, yet is also part of the whole exciting metropolis of the city of Los Angeles.

Surrounding areas: Beverly Hills, California (2.1 mi), Brentwood, California (2.5 mi), Los Angeles, California (3.7 mi), Santa Monica, California (3.8 mi), West Hollywood, California (4.6 mi), Venice, California (4.7 mi), Marina Del Rey, California (5.5 mi)

Westwood Weather & Climate

Southern California enjoys a mild year round climate that is classified as Mediterranean. There are two distinct seasonal changes, categorized by the amount of rainfall received - a dry summer and wet winter with modest variation in temperature. In the dry season, a Pacific high-pressure system dominates the weather pattern creating warm and very dry air and a thick marine layer that typically advances inland during the night and burns off to hazy sunshine by midday. Surface pollutants trapped under the marine layer, or fog, create L.A.'s infamous "smog." In winter, the high system is no longer dominant and storms fed by subtropical moisture bring lots of rain into southern California during the months of November through March. Afternoon sea breezes of 10 to 15 mph are common. Strong offshore winds, known as "Santa Anas," though not uncommon, rarely cause damage.
