Description:

Known as the “City of Angels,” Los Angeles has been synonymous with flash and film fakery. But beneath its well-manicured surface, there is authenticity to be found. Los Angeles is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world with its inhabitants creating a flavorful experience of food, fashion, art, music and all points in between.

Nestled in landscapes of beaches, mountains and desert, one will find that no two neighborhoods are ever alike in Los Angeles, and it would do a visitor a great service to explore the city. From big Hollywood dreams to sunsoaked beaches to traffic jams to celebrity sightings, L.A. will not disappoint your need for escape.
