Los Angeles, Southern California, is known for its sunshine, entertainment industry and openness to newcomers.
In Downtown Los Angeles, Olvera Street is one of the oldest surviving areas in L.A., to experience the colors and tastes of Old Mexico. Just across the road is Union Station, which has appeared in almost 30 big-budget movies.
The main attractions in Los Angeles include Knott's Berry Park, the Aquarium of the Pacific and, of course, Disneyland. Rodeo Drive, in the heart of Beverly Hills, is the world's most expensive and exclusive shopping area.
Hollywood is the epicenter of the world's entertainment industry. Highlights are the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Grauman's Chinese Theater. Griffith Park is America's largest and wildest urban park. Perched high on the slopes of Mount Hollywood, you'll find the Griffith Observatory here.
West Hollywood is a haven for artists and designers. As evening falls, head to the iconic clubs of Sunset Strip, such as The Viper Room and Whiskey a Go Go.
