THE BEST SIDE.
They say the west coast is the best coast- and it’s definitely true. Westside Los Angeles, lovingly dubbed “the Westside” by those familiar with it, encompasses the communities of Beverly Hills, Malibu, Hollywood, and almost every other area that comes to mind when the city of Los Angeles is mentioned. With its world-renowned beaches, pristine geography, rich culture, and prestigious real estate, the Westside offers a perfect nesting place for people of all backgrounds and stages of life.
Westside L.A. also encompasses much of the topography that makes Southern California famous- including its legendary hikes and surf spots. Runyon Canyon offers locals and visitors the chance to run into celebrities while walking their dogs, and view the Hollywood sign from its best angle. Malibu’s MASH site and Griffith Park remain some of the most popular hikes for fans of the cinema- or just nature’s beauty in general.
There’s a reason the Westside is the place that countless celebrities call home: because of the minimum of 300 days of sunshine each year and trendsetting lifestyle. All of L.A.’s best restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and cultural events occur within the area- with new options being added each and every day. Families on the Westside have hundreds of options for activities; including world-class museums, cultural celebrations, music festivals, and outdoor experiences.
To call it the heart of L.A. would not do the Westside justice: it is L.A.
