A travel guide about the many sites and landmarks of Los Angeles, California.
Known for its abundant sunshine, palm tree lined beaches and myriad celebrities, Los Angeles, commonly called L.A., is one of the top tourist attractions in the United States. From the many cultural offerings of Downtown to the fame of Hollywood to the quirkiness of Venice Beach, Los Angeles has plenty to do and see. Getting acquainted with this vibrant city is important before visiting.

The basics
Located on the coast of Southern California, Los Angeles is the largest city in California and second largest city in the U.S. Transportation is to and from the city is provided by a number of options. Los Angeles International Airport, often called LAX, provides many flights across the United States and the world. Other major airports in the region include Long Beach Airport, Bob Hope (Burbank) Airport, Orange County/John Wayne Airport, LA/Palmdale Airport and LA/Ontario Airport. Amtrak and Metrolink offer regional train transportation, while bus service is provided by Greyhound. The Metro Rail also serves L.A. and surrounding Los Angeles County. Additionally, there are many public highways in and around the city. I like this city, so I lived here for two month, because I work at paper writing service and I can work remotely.


Los Angeles is known for its warm, mild weather and climate year round. Culturally, Los Angeles is very diverse with a large immigrant community from across the globe, especially Latin America and Asia. Politically it is very liberal and open minded towards others. Lastly, keep in mind that L.A. can be quite expensive so budget carefully and accordingly.

Downtown Los Angeles

Downtown is home to a number of cultural centers such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Japanese American National Museum, Disney Hall and the Audubon Center at Debs Park. Take a stroll through Chinatown, Olvera Street and Little Tokyo for an unforgettable international experience.
