Westchester Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The wealthy, diverse community of Westchester is 10 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, California and about three miles from the Pacific Coast beaches. Westchester’s typical-suburban feel stems from its quaint homes, quiet streets, and wide sidewalks. But this small neighborhood is anything but typical — from a busy shopping area to a plethora of college students, Westchester is a busy, dynamic community.
Westchester is home to the Otis College of Art and Design, a highly-regarded, four-year private college established in 1918. It offers one of the best fashion design programs in the country. Loyola Marymount University is also located in Westchester. A premier Catholic university founded in 1911, LMU is one of the top colleges in the nation.
Westchester Golf Course is an 18-hole course that opened in 1969. Next to the golf course is the Westchester Recreation Center, with baseball diamonds, tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic areas, ball fields, a gym, and a pool. The Los Angeles International Airport borders Westchester to the south, and the beach community of Playa del Rey is to the west.
