Westchester Reviews

All Categories
Westchester has been my home for about 16 years. I have grown up, made close friends, learned how to drive, and more, in this area. I consider Westchester my home, and I am very sad to leave for college where there won't be the sound of airplanes or my cats to keep me company.

It is close to all freeways, as well as Lax. It is a quite neighborhood with a diverse community. Loyola Marymount University is also apart of the community. It has a lot of activities available for everyone, farmers markets on saturdays, and restaurants that can excite the pickiest taste buds.
It’s a hidden residential gem in Los Angeles. It’s located close to everything in Westside/Southbay with easy access to major freeways and LAX. It’s a neighborhood underestimated by many.
