Los Angeles is the largest city in the US state of California and the home of stars and starlets! L.A. is a city with many facets that may not be visible to everyone at first glance!
With almost four million inhabitants, the city on the Pacific is the largest city in the USA after New York and the beating heart of the film industry. But Los Angeles is not only Hollywood and Beverly Hills, it is also a cultural, economic and business center.
L.A. itself consists of 15 districts, which are connected by the numerous highways. These include, for example, Hollywood, West Hollywood (famous for its party scene), Venice, Downtown L.A. or San Fernando. Only a few minutes drive away are the independent cities of Santa Monica, Bel Air or Pasadena.
Those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a while will find relaxing hours in the green and quiet San Fernando Valley district. There you will also find charming accommodations with a cozy Midwest flair. The area is especially recommended around Halloween, when everything is festively and spookily decorated.
Who does not wish to visit L.A. during the Oscar or Grammy Awards - but also away from the dazzling film and music world, the city has a lot to offer!
L.A. has many facets and each one is worth discovering! That's why you should bring enough time to get to know the city and its inhabitants. Besides the world-famous sights like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the TCL Chinese Theatre or Sunset Boulevard, there are other highlights.
For example, the Griffith Observatory, in the northwest of the city, towers over L.A. and offers a fantastic view of the Los Angeles skyline. Art lovers should visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. On display are more than 120,000 works of art from ancient to modern times.
L.A. can also be easily explored by bicycle. Along the idyllic beach districts and the parks (e.g. Griffith Park) it is a particularly good ride! And even outside the city - in the neighboring communities (e.g. Santa Monica) there are fantastic bike paths to discover.
