It would take several lifetimes to experience all that Los Angeles has to offer. More than just the second largest city in the USA, it’s like 12 cities in one, with each neighbourhood unveiling its own vibe and character. Close to half of Los Angeles’ residents can trace their roots back to Latin American origins, and the city’s past, present and future have been shaped by these rich cultures.
LA caters to the choosiest of shoppers, with both global fashion brands and edgy local designers; and of course, it’s the undisputed entertainment capital of the world, legendary home of Hollywood and the silver screen.
But LA offers so much more. Surrounded by mountain ranges, valleys, forests, beaches, and desert, one can take to the great outdoors, with almost a guarantee of good weather any time of year. It has more cultural institutions than any other major city in the United States. And it offers a diverse culinary scene with some of the most critically acclaimed chefs in the world.
If you haven’t experienced the City of Angels, go now; or if you’ve been 100 times, go back, as Los Angeles is constantly recreating itself, always adding to its list of blockbuster attractions.
