Forgetting your reusable grocery bag isn't a sin in West Los Angeles. This unpretentious neighbourhood's urban borders stretch from the beachfront mindset of bordering Santa Monica to the storied commutes along the arterial 405 freeway. Cottage-style residences and multi-store complexes settle in between indie theatres, vintage diners, and one of LA's favourite culinary areas, "Little, Little Tokyo" in Sawtelle. West Los Angeles' myriad attractions serve as sundry a population—you won't tire of the neighbourhood's inviting mix of simple pleasures.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
