I love La La Land. No, really. I do. Only Northern Californians see a rivalry between SF and LA. Rise above the regionalism and learn to love LA's cosmopolitan attitude and global immigrant cultural mix as much as San Francisco's mosaic of neighborhoods and back-to-nature ethos. Downtown LA may be seedy, but it's also got vibrant arts and cultural scenes. Don't skip seeing the awesome museums of Mid-City like LACMA and the hilltop Getty Center in West LA. Hollywood is mostly a tourist trap, but with restored movie palaces and nightclubs worth taking time out for. And of course everyone inevitably ends up at the beach: posh Santa Monica, the historic end of Route 66; funky Venice, which birthed skater culture and its own arts scene; and the bodacious beaches of the South Bay.

The crazier side of Southern California as opposed to Orange County. Where OC is the innocent, LA is the one with street smarts, interests and a personality. Southern California cool, as they say on 94.7 The WAVE.

Exciting, exhausting, stressful, overwhelming, rewarding, exhilarating, and overly stimulating, Los Angeles is a whirlwind megalopolis with more to do and see than visitors - or even locals - know what to do with. There are all walks of life here, with subcultures rampant enough to create a second planet. From the downtrodden and poor to the sickeningly rich, from eccentric promenades to glamorous beach resorts, from the nitty gritty high-rise downtown to the tranquil peace of mountain trails or beachside coves, Los Angeles has it all...and more.

This goes out to all you haters. You know the folks that always chant BEAT LA or LA SUCKS. We know you just wish you could be like us. But you aint got chit going for you.
We have a world class city with more to do than just about anywhere else period. During winter you can easily ski/snowboard and surf daily. You can literally pick just about any activity in the world and do it within LA or a reasonable drive of LA. Camping, Hiking, Rock Climbing, Surfing, Car Racing, Archery, Museums, illegal narcotics (some are even legal in LA, just not federally), drive by's, paintballing, Disneyland, Zoos, Aquariums, Deep Sea Fishing, river fishing, Dragonboat Racing, Skydiving, Dancing, Clubbing (yeah they are different).
Let alone I think LA has more professional and collegiate championships than any other two cities just about put together. You have:
Sparks (yeah I laughed too, but so what!)
And the list goes on. None the less LA is the center of the world. At least according to Hollywood, you know the place you dream of becoming an actor at someday and you get to practice lines such as, "would you like fries with that" while auditioning for that breakthrough role!
Pro Tip: Come spend your $$$ here. We love it!
Ohhhh don't forget we have all the great grub... especially our ghetto dogs errr street dogs... you know the bacon wrapped beef wieners with grilled peppers n onions on a roll that was cooked on some converted homeless dudes shopping cart with a cookie tray for a surface and is unlicensed... ohhh yeah you know you jealous since Wolfgang Puck loves the danger dogs too! Hell we are so awesome we don't have a Chinatown with that many Chinese, we have a whole valley with the best Chinese grub this side of the forgotten city... hell it was forgotten since Arcadia, Alhambra, Industry, etc are sooooo spectacular!
Ohhhh and lets just Toss in OC for chits n grins and you start to see why LA isn't being arrogant, we are just better than you!
So put that in your pipe and smoke it, dogg...Recommended for

LA...the land of movie stars, the Lakers, horrible traffic 24/7, smoggy weather, plastic surgery, and amazing food! I lived in LA for the last six years, and it has been great. Every part of the city has something interesting to see and do, whether it's high-end shopping in Rodeo Drive (well, Beverly Hills, but it's pretty much LA), a concert or basketball game in Downtown LA, seen-and-be-seen nightlife in Hollywood, or the chill beach scene just a little further west in Santa Monica or Venice. The people are incredibly diverse, from their ethnicity to their day jobs...LA doesn't lack any personality types. I love LA!

The fast paced lifestyle of LA living isn't for everyone; but for the nearly 4 million people who choose to live here, they would say there is no place better. From the hills, to the city, there is always something new and exciting to explore. The people in general are a little more laid back and care free than most other major cities aside from SF. The only downside which I think everyone will agree with is the traffic.

This sun-filled strip mall is an American cultural Mecca. Sprawling and full of traffic, LA is hard to love but the weather is nice, the food scene is sophisticated, and there are great museums and shopping. Contrary to its image, this is not the place for a beach holiday. You definitely need a car.
