Overview of West Hollywood
The iconic nature of Hollywoodland, as the sign formerly read, has shaped the surrounding area, which grew out of the popularity of American cinema.

People looking for West Hollywood apartments for rent will be pleased with the location of their potential residence, known for its trendy restaurants, nightclubs, theatres, fashion outlets and other Sunset Strip boutiques.
Living in West Hollywood, CA
The city has a long and colorful history, the region was cemented in the area as a farming support area for the Los Angeles Markets when Don Eugenio Plummer purchased large plots of land in 1874. The metropolis grew out of this initial trade relationship, but it wasn't until the 1920s - when Hollywood became the center of the world's entertainment industry - that the city began to gain prominence and attract businesses.
After a post-war lull, the city began to return to prominence in the 1960s when young musicians began to frequent music clubs like Whiskey-A-Go-Go and The Troubadour. The area was redistricted several times, but after some discussion West Hollywood was incorporated in 1984. The diverse population that sought refuge in the new metropolis helped to create a culture that celebrated all backgrounds, a sentiment that lives on to this day.
Though the population of the city is relatively small compared to the surrounding areas, 34,486 according to the 2010 Census, finding West Hollywood rentals may be harder than one would think.
