Having begun as an agricultural hotspot in the early 1900s, Westchester soon transitioned into the popular residential neighborhood it is known as today. One of Westchester’s most prominent attractions is the Howard Hughes Center, a promenade area complete with restaurants, shopping outlets, and movie theaters. Representative of the area’s educated, upper-class residents are the three acclaimed postsecondary schools located there: LMU, Otis College, and Pepperdine University. For families, Westchester’s Recreation Center is a popular weekend spot, with a baseball field, basketball courts, football field, soccer field, tennis courts, pool, and barbecue pits. The accommodating attractions of Westchester make it the perfect home for those who enjoy mingling and entertaining.
