Woodland Hills/Warner Centre

Surround yourself with nice parks and new malls in this tidy LA suburb that necessitates a car.

Hike into the Santa Monica Mountains or traverse two shopping malls in Woodland Hills, a modern American suburb in the southwest San Fernando Valley. It may be miles away from Downtown LA, but Woodland Hills stays productive with a business model of its own—Warner Centre rises in the middle of this clean and tidy district. If you're looking for greener pastures or long drives, the neighbourhood's forested trails and sports car commercial-worthy roads offer the kind of elegant chaos only nature can achieve.
