The Landing, Westlake Village

The Landing has a good atmosphere on a sunny weekend afternoon. Here you can walk beside the blue lake that Westlake Village is named for. It's all a bit pretentious, with have-mores (as George W. Bush liked to say) taking their private electric boats out for a spin. I thought the boats were kind of cute and quaint-looking but my husband thought he was at Disneyland! The views of the mountains toward Malibu are stunning. And it's sweet to see a swan glide by. The walk is short- it's perfect for a stroll with a toddler or preschooler since kids don't like to walk far anyway. If you come without kids, you can eat at one of the fine dining establishments (see names below). It looks nice to sit there under the sun umbrellas on the grassy hill above the lake.
Just over the freeway, on Westlake Blvd, check out pretty, outdoor Promenade Mall. There's also a nice playground near it with animal pictures called Russell Park.
