Whether you want to trek down the Hollywood Walk of Fame, shop the streets of Beverly Hills, or just catch the sun at the Santa Monica Pier, LA truly has it all. Often called "The Entertainment Capital of the World," the city is famous for its production of movies, music, video games, and TV shows, making it a prominent cultural center and an intriguing place to visit. And if the Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Museum of Contemporary Art or Griffith Park doesn't pique your interest, Disneyland and San Diego are not too far away.


LA weather is generally warm and pleasant all year round. Protected from extremes of temperature and humidity by the Santa Monica and San Gabriel mountains, and influenced by the warm, moist air from the Pacific, its summers are dry and sunny and winters cool and wet. Offshore breezes cool the beach communities during the hot summer months, but inland temperatures can rise to well over 90°F (32°C), especially in the numerous canyons and valleys of the area. Smog often gathers in low-lying areas and sometimes the hot, dusty Santa Ana winds blow in strongly from the surrounding mountains.


Twenty-four million people come to LA every year for their vacation. Because the metropolitan area is so dense, it is impossible to separate LA, or even LA county, from the surrounding metropolitan areas, except by planting a city limits sign.
The LA five-county area has a population of almost 20 million. It includes LA, Riverside, Ventura, Orange and San Bernardino Counties.

If the five-county LA area were a state, it would be the fourth largest in the United States.


The diverse, multiethnic population of LA today distinguishes the city as the cultural hub of the Pacific Rim. In fact, LA is one of only two U.S. cities without a majority population. People from 140 countries, speaking approximately 86 different languages, currently call LA home.

•Hispanic or Latino (of any race): 47.3 percent
•White, non-Hispanic: 29.2 percent
•Asian/Pacific Islander: 13.1 percent
•African-American: 8.9 percent
•American Indian/Others: 0.3 percent


English & Spanish is used by majority people in LA.


LA is in the Pacific Time Zone, which is GMT-8 during Standard Time and GMT-7 during Daylight Saving Time. GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time.

Currency Used: US Dollars
