Westgate Entertainment District reviews
We stayed at a nearby hotel For the Fiesta Bowl game and walked to the Westgate Entertainment District. There are many restaurants to choose from and they had a live band playing as well. Fun free... more »
We walked around this area and had some lunch and visited the candy and yogurt shops. Very nice area with lots of variety of food and shops. more »
Westgate is pretty righteous. If you are looking for a meal, snack, romantic date, or dessert this is the place. Most weekend nights there is live music of all varieties and on weekends with no games you are very likely to find a bike night. If you want to just hang out and talk there is a 'grassy' area with tables and benches where you can enjoy you dessert! There are so many types of savory and sweet restaurants. I recommend the Yard House, there happy hour is a great deal and their food is superb.
The center of everything. Definitely a young happening place. Always busy, always fun. Tons of stuff to do and some of the best food around. You can come and just walk around. Good views and people to talk to. Tons of parking.
