No other city in the country serves as such an eclectic melting pot like Los Angeles, or simply "L.A." as the natives call it. The “city of Angels” attracts an eclectic crowd with a range of aspiring actors, musicians, models, and other entertainment types lured by the tinsel of Hollywood. Then there are the beaches that glisten with sparkling sand, tanned and toned bodies, and the promise of a laid-back surfing lifestyle. Mix in a healthy dose of immigrants from hundreds of countries, each cultivating their own cultures and traditions, along with the student sector from multiple Universities, plus professional sports and athletes, big business and corporate hubs – and you can begin to better understand the draw for tourists, along with the 18 million people who call this thriving metropolis home. It’s the largest county in the country and the most densely populated, so land is at a premium. From high fashion, to movie studios, to fine dining - there is never a shortage of things to do, people to see, or places to go.
