Most of the area's residential streets are walkable and there is a commercial area on the main road approaching the airport with restaurants and shops where locals can walk for a bite to eat, find groceries, and go shopping without leaving the neighborhood.
Most homes in the area are bungalows with large yards and landscaping that make residential areas enjoyable to walk through with some shady trees, sidewalks, and grassy verges. The Pacific Ocean lies just to the west and oceanfront parks are accessible for residents with dogs on foot. Fresh ocean breezes and the sights and sounds of the ocean are just a hop, skip, and jump from the Westchester neighborhood.
The nearby Vista Del Mar Park sits along the Pacific Ocean in adjacent Playa Del Mar, across from the Playa Del Rey and Dockweiler Beach. While dogs are not permitted on the beach, the pedestrian path along the Vista Del Mar that bypasses the park provides ocean views and cool breezes for locals with dogs to take in.
