It's LA. And whatever you have heard about LA, it's got its good points. Downtown is a cool spot with some nice art installations and lots of history. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is a must-see with it's unique architecture. Go there on the weekend though to avoid the weekday business crowds.
Beverly Hills is a sight to see but if you want to see some nice homes, head over to Bel Air. Then head to Mulholland Drive for an incredible view of the San Fernando Valley.

Los Angeles offers a kaleidoscope of infinitely evolving images that defies any one description. There are too many parts, some interrelated, some not. No one description can adequately describe Los Angeles. It needs to be experienced.
Los Angeles County covers more land area than 66 of the world's countries. It includes mountains, deserts and seashore. Over 200 different languages are spoken within its boundaries. It has been home to a diverse set of personalities ranging from Ray Bradbury and Julia Child to George Patton and Earl Warren. There are at least 40 universities located within its borders, including such world-renowned institutions as the California Institute of Technology, the University of California at Los Angeles and the University of Southern California. Home to many icons of the entertainment industry, Los Angeles leads the world in producing popular entertainment. There are 305 live theaters in the Metropolitan Los Angeles area. Within its twenty-eight or more museums some of the world's greatest art treasures can be seen. The contiguous ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach together comprise the fifth busiest port in the world and the most significant port in the Western Hemisphere.
Los Angeles is a young city yet it has numerous areas of historic interest ranging from the city's modern birthplace, Olvera Street, to America's largest and finest collection of still in use, vintage art deco buildings. Not too long ago Los Angeles was a significant agricultural region. It is now America's largest manufacturing center, located in a state that is America's largest agricultural producer.
The northern and eastern boundaries of Los Angeles are defined by the San Gabriel Mountains. From base to summit they are higher than the Rocky Mountains. They are the walls of the Los Angeles Basin retaining the ocean's moisture and preventing the area from being a desert. They also trap smoke, dust and pollutants, i.e., smog.

LA has grown on me.. slowly. Absolutely vapid but the culture still has a respect for food, fashion, and personal freedom. I hate anywhere that you have to drive but, as far as the US goes, this is still one of the better cities in the country. Downside: vapid people and a driving culture. Upside: good food, coastal living, and a liberal sophisticated society

Los Angeles has something for everybody! It is a foodie, cultural mecca! The Beach, Hollywood, Downtown, all things that must be seen and experienced in LA.

Almost mythic in its stature as a city of bright lights, beaches, and movie stars, LA is a classic insider's city, the kind of place where the deeper you delve into its neighborhoods and burgs, the more likely you are to discover something neat -- an awesome restaurant, a great club, a cool boutique. That's not to say that you have to live in LA to appreciate it, of course! With gorgeous coastline from Malibu to Santa Monica, fabulous museums like the hilltop Getty Center and, yes, the livid plutocratic gloss of Rodeo Drive, it's a place that will more than entertain you (LA *is* all about entertainment, after all) for a day, a week, or more. Granted, it's also a denucleated, sprawling hell of traffic and mini-malls and pretentious hipsters elbowing each other in line for $7 soy lattes, but once you get past the fake facade of Hollywood, you'll likely find behind it one of the most unique and interesting cities in the world, just waiting to be discovered.

Los Angeles is an interesting place. It's so heavily varied and changing from one area to the next. The city proper is really spread apart, compared to a city like New York, which is what I'm used to. I can't say I LOVED LA city center, but it was certainly cool to experience. The traffic can go screw itself, though.

Never get tired of exploring the enormous cosmopolitan city of cities called LA. Whether it's searching for Mid-Century Modern architecture in the hills above Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, or hanging out on a summer afternoon in one of the South Bay beach towns or Venice, or getting a huge shot of culture downtown and at the two Getty Museums, there's always more to do here. And more to eat - the foodie scene all over LA is insane (for recommendations you can trust that are up-to-the-minute, read critic Jonathan Gold's recent columns online). As you drive around town, make sure to tune in to local radio station KCRW for all the best beats and news about events going on around town.

Los Angeles is often easily dismissed as a superficial city. But you know what I've discovered in the past 9 years here? It's actually one of the most complex cities I've encountered. There is so much diversity, so many layers to this city that I'm still, to this day, being introduced to all the different gems and adventures within LA.
The thing with this city...it takes effort. It takes time to get from one place to another. And it takes time to peel away at the layers. But when it comes down to it, it's an AMAZING place to see and be.

Los Angeles has a bit of everything from the beaches of Venice and Santa Monica to its revitalized downtown with the new JW Marriott and LA Live. Since I live in Santa Monica, I'm a biased when it comes to L.A. The only thing I can't recommend is the traffic, which is best handled by listening to good music and leaving a half hour earlier than you think is necessary. When you leave early, you have a better chance of arriving on time. The Big Blue Bus in Santa Monica is a great way of getting around, but L.A. remains more of a car city than a public transit city. However, if you stay in Hollywood, you may be able to get by using the Metro.

been here over forty seven years and have not seen all of it yet there is always something new going on in this city you will never get bored here dsy or night. You close to the ocean mountains and the forest in short distance. Sun shine here almost three hundred days a year so it is beach time
