Introduction
Los Angeles Los Angeles

Welcome to sunny Los Angeles, a shiny city of reinvention where small talk always starts with a question: ‘Where are you from?’ This query reveals what’s driving the city’s energetic buzz – a perpetual in-fl ow of dreamers, go-getters and hustlers primed with unabashed optimism. Where else could an English acrobat named Archibald Leach become debonair Cary Grant? Or an Austrian bodybuilder lift his way from Muscle Beach to the governor’s mansion? Even the water’s from someplace else, imported almost a century ago after DWP chief William Mulholland opened the gates of his 233-mile aqueduct and millions of gallons rushed into the city.

Los Angeles county has a population of over 10 million, the largest of any county in the nation. The metropolis of Los Angeles sprawls across over 4,000 square miles between the beautiful pacific ocean and the snowcapped mountains. Having one of the best climates in the world, Los Angeles draws visitors year round from all over the world.

Shopping
Shopping Shopping Shopping

The largest manufacturing area in the western U.S. and home to many top designers, Los Angeles ranks as a global fashion center. Add to that the goods streaming into the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports — the fifth busiest shipping complex in the world — and you've got the ingredients for a world-class shopping spree. One classic Los Angeles experience is a cruise down Melrose. Nearby, boutiques cluster along Third Avenue, Beverly Boulevard, La Brea Boulevard and Robertson Boulevard. For more compact browsing, there's the old-school Beverly Center, a three-story mall anchored by Bloomingdale's and Macy's, and the Grove, mall king Rick Caruso's village-style outdoor shopping center. Downtown's Los Angeles Fashion District is heaven for bargain-seekers. Its polar opposite can be found on Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, where storefronts bear familiar names from the pages of Vogue & the Robb Report.

Attractions


Hollywood

Hollywood is a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California - situated west-northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. Due to its fame and cultural identity as the historical center of movie studios and movie stars, the word "Hollywood" is often used as a metonym of American cinema, and is often interchangeably used to refer to the greater Los Angeles area in general. The nicknames StarStruck Town and Tinseltown refer to Hollywood and its movie industry. Today, much of the movie industry has dispersed into surrounding areas such as the Westside neighborhood, but significant auxiliary industries, such as editing, effects, props, post-production, and lighting companies remain in Hollywood, as does the backlot of Paramount Pictures.

Designed by Arata Isozaki, MOCA Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles is host to elegant underground galleries, the flagship location of the MOCA Store, the café Lemonade at MOCA, and staff offices. Pay close attention to the design of the building. Since opening in December 1986, this landmark structure has received numerous accolades from design critics nationwide.

In the Southern California & Baja gallery, seals and sea lions can be viewed in an up-close-and personal indoor/outdoor setting. The Northern Pacific gallery is home to puffins and other diving birds which nest overhead and 'fly' underwater, while the sea otters frolic in a nearby habitat. In the Tropical Reef Habitat, the aquarium's largest exhibit, visitors are introduced to a coral lagoon with colorful fish, as well as sea horses, sea snakes and mysterious sea dragons. Shark Lagoon features a large exhibit showcasing impressive big sharks and touch pools where visitors can reach in and touch more than 150 smaller sharks.

Griffith ParkGriffith Park

Griffith Park is a large municipal park at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. The park covers 4,210 acres (1,700 ha) of land, making it one of the largest urban parks in North America.[1] It is the second-largest city park in California, after Mission Trails Preserve in San Diego, and the eleventh largest municipally owned park in the United States.[2] It has also been referred to as the Central Park of Los Angeles, but it is much larger and with a much more untamed, rugged character.

Big Bear Lake


Big Bear Lake is a reservoir in the San Bernardino Mountains, in San Bernardino County, California, United States. At a surface elevation of 6,750 ft (2,060 m), it has an east-west length of approximately 7 miles (11.2 km) and is approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) at its widest measurement, though the lake's width mostly averages a little more than 1 mile (1.6 km). These approximations are based on the lake having an optimum retainable water level. At dam's end Big Bear measures its deepest water at 72 feet (22 m). It is a completely snow-fed lake having no other means of tributary or mechanical replenishment.
