Los Angeles: Information

Los Angeles has much to offer its visitors. IPAM particularly recommends the Getty Center, which is located a short distance from campus, to its visitors. Follow the links below for more information.

Westwood Village at the southern end of campus offers a wide variety of restaurants. The Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, easily accessible by bus, also has a large number of dining and shopping options. For restaurant information and reviews, go to Los Angeles Citysearch.

Because UCLA is on the west side of the city, subject to ocean breezes and periodic fog, the weather can be variable. In general, the summer can reach 80 degrees with rare rain. The winter is moderate in temperature with scattered rain showers which are difficult to predict. It rarely drops below freezing at any time during the year. Expect an early evening drop in temperature even during the summer. For local weather reports, go to Weather Channel, Los Angeles.
