Woodland Hills is a suburb of Los Angeles set in the western San Fernando Valley and home to the large commercial development known as Warner Center. Woodland Hills spreads across a wide swath of land, with about half the neighborhood consisting of large homes built in the hills and the rest on an area known as the flats. Public schools here are excellent, and high-end shopping options abound in the area.
Because of Warner Center's large office park and the many retail developments in the area, many Woodland Hills residents can work very close to home. Highway 101 runs right through the neighborhood, and it's easy to get to other parts of the San Fernando Valley or to downtown Los Angeles though longer commutes sometimes mean getting stuck in L.A.'s notorious traffic.
As of October 2017, the average apartment rent in Woodland Hills, CA is $1,661 for a studio, $1,941 for one bedroom, $2,417 for two bedrooms, and $2,950 for three bedrooms. Apartment rent in Woodland Hills has increased by 4.7% in the past year.
Woodland Hills hosts many chain restaurants and fast-food places, including upscale restaurants such as Ruth's Chris Steak House and The Cheesecake Factory, but you find many unique gems in the neighborhood as well. Most restaurants are clustered along Ventura Boulevard or in the Warner Center commercial area.
Sushi Ichiban Kan serves up spicy tuna rolls and omigoto rolls that locals rave about, all in a spacious and welcoming setting unlike many hole-in-the-wall sushi eateries.

Head to Brandywine for a romantic date or a special occasion. This family-owned French restaurant makes you feel as if you've been invited to dinner in a little village outside Paris. Start with hot, crusty bread and complimentary gravlax, then choose from frog's legs, a melt-in-your-mouth veal chop, chateaubriand for two or a seafood soup with Maine lobster. The staff at this hidden gem of a restaurant goes out of its way to make sure everything is perfect for you.
When you're in a rush in the middle of running errands, grab a quick bite at the Tomato Patch. With choices such as Greek salad, white bean soup, veggie sandwich or caprese salad with tuna, you know you're eating healthy enough to give yourself a treat, so wash it all down with some pomegranate lemonade, or grab a tasty frozen yogurt as you head out.
Many hookah lounges have found a home in Woodland Hills, sharing space along Ventura Boulevard with some notable British pubs. Stop in at O Zone Hookah Lounge, the Magic Hookah Lounge or V Hookah Lounge for the combination of gourmet tobacco and great local bands.

Blues bands on Saturdays, karaoke on Wednesdays, soccer on the outdoor televisions and traditional British pub fare keep locals coming back night after night.
Woodland Hills began when one entrepreneur bought almost 3,000 acres in the 1920s and began to install an infrastructure, including planting 120,000 trees. The town, then known as Girard, began to attract residents, and in 1945, the name was changed to Woodland Hills. Three hundred of the pepper trees remain shading Canoga Avenue and have been designated as a historic monument.
Just west of Woodland Hills, you'll find the Leonis Adobe and Plummer Museum. Take a tour to understand what life was like in the San Fernando Valley 130 years ago.
Woodland Hills doesn't have much of a local arts or theater scene, but with all of Los Angeles just a freeway hop away, you can find anything from fine art to experimental theater to opera nearby.

Any native Southern Californian will tell you it's extremely difficult to live in Los Angeles without a car, and Woodland Hills is no exception to this rule. Much of the residential section of the neighborhood can't be reached by public transportation because of its location up in the hills. While you can walk or bike easily in the commercial section of Woodland Hills, distances can be spread out, and the hills prevent easy walking or biking on the south end of town.
Easily available public parking on residential streets makes it easy for those with cars, and metered street parking on the major boulevards adds to the abundant parking lots, which are typically free for shoppers — though office buildings may charge for parking. Highway 101 runs right through Woodland Hills, connecting residents to Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties to the west and to all of Los Angeles to the east. You can take the express Busway from Warner Center all the way to the Metro Link trains in North Hollywood, and public buses also run up and down Ventura and other major thoroughfares. Taxis and limo services are available on call, with Uber also just a phone call away.
Residents consider Woodland Hills an exceptionally livable area, but its amenities come at a bit of a cost. The cost of living in the neighborhood runs about 16 percent higher than that of Los Angeles overall. If you want to rent a one-bedroom apartment here, expect to pay an average of $1,880 per month, with prices typically edging upward the closer you get to the Santa Monica Mountains.
If you plan to take the bus out of Woodland Hills, expect to pay $1.75 without any transfers, $3.50 with transfers to other routes or $7 for an all-day pass. If you plan to drive, gas runs about 9 percent higher than the national average. Stopping for a beer at a neighborhood bar after work should cost about $6 on tap.
Woodland Hills features plenty of options for shoppers with one major mall as a destination shopping center and a district of big-box stores, including Target, Nordstrom Rack and Crate and Barrel. The Westfield Topanga and Promenade shopping mall presents high-end shops such as Neiman-Marcus, Cartier, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. The mall contains than 250 businesses and plenty of free parking.
