Los Angeles is the "City of Angels", the city of stars, of miles of beaches, of ridiculously heavy traffic and millions of Angelenos. Go as far west as you can then turn right on the Pacific Coast Highway for one of the most spectacular drives anywhere. Head to Hollywood and look for stars on the street - or embedded in the sidwalk.
Most of us may think of sun, surf and the entertainment industry when we think of Los Angeles but there's much more to this major Pacific Rim business center. Love it or hate it, as one of the crossroads of the world you won't find many more diverse and energetic places than greater Los Angeles.
