West Los Angeles, located just south of Brentwood and east of Santa Monica, is under four miles to the beach and offers cool ocean breezes without the crowds. It's also centrally located to commute to UCLA and Beverly Hills and offers a variety of experiences for those who enjoy a vibrant atmosphere and spending time outdoors. It is well known for its sushi and Japanese restaurants along Sawtelle Blvd. that offer an exceptional dining experience. There are numerous things to do in this neighborhood for those looking for a dynamic but low key vibe. Although the nightlife is quiet, there is plenty to do. The Bundy Metro station has brought numerous development projects to the area with a revitalized West LA civic center in planning.
