YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE TO MOVING TO TEHRANGELES
Tehrangeles is one of the best places in Los Angeles to raise a family if you also like to be close to all the incredible amenities LA has to offer. For Iranian families, it can quickly feel like home, and it’s just as common to hear Farsi in the area as you are English. Of course, that’s not to say people and families won’t feel at home in Tehrangeles – with the strong community feel, it’s easy to feel at home in Little Persia.
Where exactly is Tehrangeles?
Tehrangeles, also known as Little Persia, is an area of Westwood where Iranians settled and gathered after the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Today, it’s an area rich with culture for Persian families and anyone else looking to be centrally located in Los Angeles. Tehrangeles is a stone’s throw from Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, so it really is one of the best places to be in Los Angeles if you want to embrace a small neighborhood feel, get out into the State Park from time to time, and stay close to central Los Angeles.
