Westwood sure has stepped it up since I moved out in 2006. It's right next to UCLA, so you'll see a lot of students in the area, and the shops cater to that kind of clientele - Urban Outfitters, Brandy Melville, Yogurtland, Victorias Secret, movie theaters, coffee shops, cheap eateries.

Westwood has a nice variety of restaurants and a fair share of stores. It has definitely struggled over the past few years and businesses have come and gone, but you can get everything you need here. There are also theaters where film premieres are periodically held and of course UCLA is just a short walk north.

I like the food and theaters but hate the parking. Even the parking lots get full fast. If only the parking wasn't so bad, I'd be up for visiting more often.

Westwood tries to maintain the fiction that it is a little university town with a small town atmosphere. For a little town, the parking is horrendous - that is, if you find something that makes it worth getting out of your car. The restaurants are mediocre and the clothing stores are over-priced.

Who doesn't like a clean university town, tucked in the midst of Los Angeles craziness? While the student overflow can be annoying at times, it's overall a great little city with a walkable downtown with plenty to do.

This is a young, "hip" district in Los Angeles that offers an assortment of boutiques, chain stores, and cute restaurants. A much cleaner part of Los Angeles than most, this area is home to the University of California, Los Angeles campus.

If you like cheap, quirky toys and gifts, check out Aahs! Gift store on Westwood Blvd.
