Los Angeles: Hollywood and Much More
Los Angeles is perhaps most famous as the capital of the American film industry, a sprawling expanse of movie studios and celebrity-studded locales nestled in the Hollywood Hills. Spend time frequenting the shops, cafes, and restaurants of Hollywood, and you're almost guaranteed to see someone famous.
Los Angeles is much more than just a movie town, however. It's the second-largest city in the United States, and it's the country's densest urban centre, with a population of almost 18 million inhabitants in the farthest reaches of its metropolitan area. The city occupies a basin of more than 1,200 square kilometres – surrounded on three sides by mountains, with peaks as high as 2,000 metres – and on the fourth by the Pacific Ocean.
Visitors to Los Angeles who are interested in something other than movie stars can find cultural edification in the city's world-class museums including the Getty Center and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, sporting events featuring numerous professional teams, relaxation on beautiful beaches, and cultural colour in LA’s astoundingly diverse population. The surrounding hills offer the opportunity for challenging hikes and stunning views of the city stretched out below.
The weather in Los Angeles is famously beautiful all year long, but it's close to perfect in the months between April and September. The weather in February has the potential to be rainier than in some other months, but it's also awards season, meaning that there are more celebrities in town, making it the best time for getting close to the city's most famous and the talented residents.
