Destination guide

Explore West Hollywood from holiday homes to rent

There are folk who like to go out, and there are those who like to go all-out. If you're in the latter category, then West Hollywood vacation rentals are going to be right up your street. Historically famous as the place where megastar actors come to cut loose, West Hollywood's one of LA's top nightlife destinations, and features the iconic Sunset Strip. Known as WeHo to the locals, it's also well known for its proud gay community, and for a creative streak that's seen it become a powerhouse of fashion and design. For an LA vacation rental with bags of style, WeHo's where it's at.

Things to do

Attractions near West Hollywood holiday homes

The local authorities like to promote WeHo as 'The Creative City', and they might just be onto something. The heart of the white-hot design scene is the Pacific Design Center, and no trip to the area's complete without a snoop round its 150,000 sq m of showrooms, restaurants and galleries, including a branch of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). West Hollywood vacation rentals are also a perfect opportunity to explore some of Los Angeles' most iconic attractions, including Universal Studios Hollywood, Griffith Park (home to LA Zoo and the Griffith Observatory) and the dinosaurs of the Natural History Museum.

Activities

What to do near West Hollywood holiday accommodation

Above all else, West Hollywood vacation rentals are about 2 things – fashion and nightlife. WeHo's 1 of the top fashion and design shopping districts in LA, which is fortunate because come evening, you'll want to be looking your best for Sunset Strip. The Strip is the 2.4-kilometre stretch of Sunset Boulevard that runs through West Hollywood, and it's become synonymous with some of LA's most glamorous night spots, including legendary live music clubs and Hollywood hangouts like the Johnny Depp-owned Viper Room. It's also got a massive gay nightlife scene too, which all adds to that unique WeHo vibe.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in West Hollywood holiday homes

Break out the shades, because in West Hollywood, the only thing hotter than the people is the weather. It's warm year-round in this part of California, even at night – which is good news if you're looking to hit Sunset Strip. Best of all, it's pretty dry too, and the humidity that so often tends to go with hot climates is nowhere to be found, meaning you won't be reduced to a puddle within hours of arriving. Winters can be a little wetter, and while snow isn't technically impossible, it's the sort of thing that happens once in a lifetime.

Natural highlights

Keeping up with the neighbours in West Hollywood

West Hollywood is in distinguished company. Though it's a city in its own right, it's also part of the greater Los Angeles area, and its neighbours are legendary LA names like Beverly Hills and Hollywood. West Hollywood itself is set a little way inland, in the hilly and affluent north of the metropolis, but the Pacific coast hotspots like Venice Beach and Santa Monica are within easy reach. To the west and north there are plenty of state parks, and for the best view of the LA cityscape, you'll want to take yourself across to sprawling Griffith Park.
