Los Angeles

The City of Angels

Los Angeles, often known by its initials L.A., is the second-largest city in the United States, after New York City, and the most populous city in California. Los Angeles is known for its Mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity, celebrity culture, traffic, and the film and television industry. People who have never been to LA have a stereotypical view of it as a land of superficiality and vacuous inanity. To be sure, there is a certain amount of that. People who visit here are disappointed because Hollywood is just a street, and you're not having lunch with stars every second. Still you're bound to see some. But if you live here, or get to see it from the insider's perspective, it's an amazing place to live. Whether you are looking for the newest designer couture or the best place to eat fish tacos while soaking in the SoCal sun. Los Angeles is a city of endless entertainment. Start Exploring!

7/1/2015: For the safety of visitors tall and small, Disneyland has banned selfie sticks from its parks so leave 'em in the car or back at the hotel, folks. They will be checking bags at the gates, and any found in vistors' possession will be held until for them until they leave the park.

ALERT November 1st.
LAX has been closed down since 9:30 am and will be closed for at least 24 to 48 hours. No one gets in and no one gets out. All exits and entrances in and out of the airport are closed. All this is due to a shootout apparently directed at TSA staff. DO NOT GO TO THE AIRPORT NO MATTER IF YOU HAVE FLIGHTS AND TICKETS. YOU WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE, AND YOU CANNOT GET INTO THE AIRPORT ANYWAY.

Los Angeles is the place to go for summer fun and vacation people!(With maybe just an exception of Seattle, WA). Tons of events with great sunshine and cool breeze at least on most nights. Skip the East Coast, Mid-west and South where you get that brutal humidity with your sun-filled heat. Go west young and young at heart man and woman!

    It was scary...20 minutes for a taco, 20 minutes for a churro. and hour to get your face painted. Cool idea but logistically difficult.

I am born and raised in LA. I have traveled to many places and can't imagine living anywhere else, I just love it here. Well, except for Bora Bora :)
