Los Angeles - or LA, as Angelenos call their hometown - is the second-largest city in the USA, only slightly smaller than New York. Located in Southern California, nicknamed the City of Angels, LA is as much business and trade as it is culture and the arts. A major global business hub, the city is also the nerve centre of the nation's film and music industry and buzzing with activity 24 hours a day - just like in the movies.
Sea, sand and sun are all part of the lifestyle - its ideal location in the Sun Belt keeps temperatures balmy all year round. LA is the stuff dreams are made of, from its white sand beaches to iconic boulevards and neighbourhoods - Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard, Melrose Avenue... the list goes on. For thrill-seekers, Six Flags Amusement Park and Disneyland are a short trip from LA, as is Universal Studios Hollywood.
