What can be said about a community that offers its residents small-town living, quiet neighborhoods, award-winning schools and a low crime rate as well as access to the many opportunities provided by the greater Los Angeles area? Residents of West Hills find themselves within a short drive of just about every kind of diversion imaginable.

The beaches in Southern California are second to none. Anyone who has seen the cliffs at Malibu and the waves at Point Mugu or has experienced the attractions of the Santa Monica Pier will say there's nothing like it. Internationally famous Southern California beaches are a draw for surfers and swimmers, and the generally mild climate means the beaches are open for fun 365 days a year.

Of course, there is more to do in the Los Angeles area than visit the beach. The mountains and Angeles National Forest are just miles away from West Hills. Full of parks, camping areas, hiking trails, rocks for climbing, ski and snow sports areas, wildlife preserves and lakes for fishing, boating and water sports, these areas provide a refreshing recreational change from surfing, swimming and relaxing on the sand. Additionally, there are numerous famous amusement parks including Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm and Six Flags Magic Mountain nearby.

Residents are fortunate to be within driving distance from all the cultural enrichment opportunities of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The Natural History Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Huntington Library, the Music Center, J. Paul Getty Center, the Autry Museum of Western Heritage and the California Science Center are popular destinations for those interested in Southern California's history and culture. The La Brea Tar Pits and the Los Angeles Zoo are other highly regarded educational facilities just a stone's throw away from West Hills.

The West Hills area offers some of the finest elementary, junior and senior high schools in the Los Angeles area, as well as highly acclaimed private schools including Chaminade College Prep.
