Westchester is home to LAX, one of the busiest airports in the world. Around the airport you'll find lots of hotels and car rental lots. But north of the airport you'll find a predominantly residential neighborhood that's quiet and peaceful (with the exception of noise from jets taking off and landing). Loyola Marymount University sits on one of its hills overlooking the city and creative types can hone their craft at the Otis College of Art and Design.

Westchester is bordered on the north by Playa Vista, on the east by Inglewood, on the south by El Segundo and Del Aire, and on the west by Playa del Rey.
