Everyone loves WeHo, the famous so-called 'Creative City'
Who loves WeHo? We do! West Hollywood is in western Los Angeles County. The home of Sunset Strip, the Hollywood Hills sit to its north, Hollywood itself is to your east, Fairfax lies to the south east and super-wealthy Beverly Hills to the west. The West Hollywood climate is almost as famous as its movie stars, a sub-tropical semi-arid treat with barely any rainfall... as you'll discover it's hot, hot, hot.

This area of LA is famous for its remarkable public art installations as well as its world-renowned private art collections. You can absorb a brilliant range of public sculpture on foot, interspersing your adventures with alfresco chilled drinks, or even attend an avant-garde art opening. The cultural and artistic scene here reaches into every walk of life - no wonder they call it the Creative City. If you're visiting in autumn, look out for the planet's biggest Halloween street party, the West Hollywood Carnaval (yes, it's spelled that way). On October 31st half a million revellers take to the streets on Santa Monic Boulevard to celebrate to true Hollywood-style excess, complete with wild costumes and a total loss of inhibition. What a giggle.
Shopaholic? Designers, artisans and fashion icons gather here, a place recognised the world over for excellence and innovation in interior design, haute couture and streetwear. Brighton Pride has nothing on this! Early June sees one of the world's greatest and first ever Pride festivals, a 3 day merry go round of celebration first held in 1970 on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The West Coast gay liberation movement is still going strong and Pride has been held in West Hollywood ever since, the jewel in its wonderfully tolerant crown.
