, affectionately known as WeHo
, is a city of less than four square miles completely surrounded by Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. It was formed in 1984 from a previously unincorporated area of Los Angeles County adjacent to Hollywood, at the foot of the Hollywood Hills. It was the 84th of 88 cities incorporated in Los Angeles County, making it one of the youngest cities in the county. It is known for being the most gay-friendly city
in the country, and therefore, has a high percentage of LGBT residents.
The gay club scene
on Santa Monica Boulevard is in contrast to the grunge, punk, hip hop, rock n' roll scene on the Sunset Strip
, but it all coexists in relative harmony in WeHo. The other dominant scene in West Hollywood is design, from interiors to fashion to fine art, this is the place to find it.
