|The West San Fernando Valley has so much to offer--biking and hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, traversing large shopping malls, taking scenic drives to many points of interest. The West Valley is a modern American suburb of Los Angeles. It may be miles away from Downtown LA, but Woodland Hills stays productive with a business model of its own—Warner Center rises in the middle of this clean and tidy district. Green pastures, long drives, neighborhood's forested trails and vista-worthy roads offer the kind of elegant chaos only nature can achieve here in the West Valley.

Ventura Boulevard is one of the oldest and primary east–west thoroughfares in the San Fernando Valley. It was also U.S. Route 101 before the freeway (which is parallel for much of Ventura Boulevard's length) was built and it was also signed as Business U.S. Route 101.
Running 18 miles, Ventura Boulevard is the world's longest avenue of contiguous businesses. The Boulevard begins near Calabasas in Woodland Hills at an intersection with Valley Circle Boulevard, it continues east through Tarzana, Encino, Sherman Oaks, and finally ending in Studio City. It becomes Cahuenga Boulevard, which then winds through Cahuenga Pass into Hollywood. Homes south of Ventura are considered to be among the most expensive in Los Angeles County, ranging from $500k to $50 million and home to numerous celebrities, executives, athletes, entertainers and rock stars. Ventura Boulevard has many store fronts where you are sure to find not only essentials but also unique finds.

Village at Westfield Topanga
October 2014, work continues on The Village at Westfield Topanga here in Woodland Hills. The $350 million project is an upscale open-air mall which includes boutique stores, restaurants, a gym and a luxury spa to name a few. Shoppers will stroll past 100-year-old California sycamores, olive trees and Mexican fan palms. Native California grass and agave will line courtyards. And visitors can walk past water features on their way to outdoor cafes and a yoga studio. There will also be patios with fire pits, shaded overhangs, a bocce ball court, and courtyards for concerts and performances. It is no wonder that Westfield management has coined the phrase, “Where the Outdoors Is In”. The Westfield Community Center is now open. Many local non-profit organizations will be offered this space to meet and have events to further their causes.
