Los Angeles

There has never been a better time to visit and experience Los Angeles. While LA is a geographic behemoth, taken region by region, city by city, LA is not only more manageable, but also more exciting. Each locale has enough diversions to fill a short trip, yet not too many to overwhelm. Los Angeles celebrated its 225th Anniversary in 2006. Anytime is the perfect time to discover the rich history the city and county have to offer.

With 88 cities, LA County has something for everybody. Whether it's shopping on Melrose Avenue, biking near the shores of Venice Beach or cheering on the home team at Dodger Stadium, there is never a shortage of things to do. On only one tank of gas, you can ski, surf and hike in LA where, on average, it is sunny 325 days out of the year. With sights to see such as Seinfeld's New York apartment (really in LA), the soon to be re-opened Griffith Observatory or the Walt Disney Concert Hall, instead of looking for things to do, you'll look for a moment of relaxation. A moment of relaxation that can be stolen while wandering through the LA County Museum of Art, perusing through books at one of 311 bookstores or stopping for a cup of joe at Johnie's Coffee Shop.

The rich history of the city can be explored in a myriad of different ways, whether it be at the San Fernando Mission where you can learn about the development of this region or on the world's most famous sidewalk, Hollywood's Walk of Fame, where more than 2,300 stars from film, television and music have their own stars. Or you can explore one of the county's many ethnic areas, such as Little Ethiopia, and partake in the cuisine, shopping and life of the neighborhood. Whatever it is you want to do, LA is sure to offer it. Come celebrate 225 years of existence with Los Angeles, where the sun never stops shining, palm trees never wilt and excitement never sleeps.
