Westchester Apartments for Rent
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.
