"Napas outlet store haven"

Westwood is a firmly residential neighborhood plotted in the heart of Napa, California. It is a modest middle-class community with a population around 7,000, and mostly split between white and hispanic residents. The neighborhood is largely family-friendly with its clean streets and flat landscape. But don’t expect anything too thrilling in this laid back community.

At a glance, the district is a bit of suburban anonymity, with pleasant, one-story homes, quaint yards and plenty of open space. More specifically, Westwood offers an assortment of homes in the area, which range from $60,000-$110,000. Most houses are old, but soundly refurbished in recent years to keep up with Napa’s tranquil reputation. Moreover, residences stand on a large plot of land with significant room for both a front and back yard (perfect for children to run around). And street parking is rather abundant due to the wide roads and large residential driveways.

Interstate 29 skirts the western edge of the neighborhood making transportation a convenient on-ramp away. The street next to it is conveniently called Factory Stores Drive, considering the plethora of outlet stores and cheap shops that line the strip. Like many of its kind, the outlet plaza hosts a variety of quick chinese restaurants and fast food places. More conveniently, the area offers plenty of store front parking.

Westwood Hills Park is one of the district’s most enticing outdoor attractions. The heavily wooded area lies on the the neighborhood’s northern boundary, offering everything from picnic tables to a couple miles of hiking trails to a children’s nature library. Westwood Elementary School also lies within its borders but test scores are a bit underwhelming for Napa’s standards. And finally, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church is one of the few and most notable religious centers in Westwood.
