The unique city of Los Angeles (or LA is it's commonly known as), is the second largest city in the US next to New York. The 'City of Angels' has a booming cultural and arts scene, giving it a dyanmic and individual identity. Not only is it the centre of the US' film and music industry, but it's also a huge business and trade quarter. This city really does have it all.
Discover the delicious cuisines along Ocean Avenue, and stroll along to the farmer's market to fill your room with bunches of fresh flowers. If you're looking for entertainment, Venice beach has some of the city's best performers that crowds flock to go see, or go on a hike up to the famous Hollywood sign. Alive and buzzing with energy and activity 24 hours a day, it really is just like it is in the movies! As soon as the sun goes down, the city comes alive with its vibrant nightlife scene. Take your pick from restaurants, bars, live music venues & rooftop views from little seaside pubs. It's safe to say you'll be completely spoilt for choice.
Sea, sand and sun are all part of the lifestyle - and its ideal location in the Sun Belt keeps the temperature warm all year round meaning that you can enjoy lounging in the sun during its 340 days of sunshine a year. From the white sandy beaches to iconic boulevards and neighbourhoods like Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard & Melrose Avenue, LA is a dream come true. If you're looking to spice up your day with a bit of a thrilling adventure, the Six Flags Amusement Park and Disneyland are only a short drive away, as are Universal Studios Hollywood.
