Los Angeles Travel Guide: 4,591 reviews and 9,470 photos

LA is the US's second largest city after New York and in many ways, for better or worse, the cultural capital of the US. It's also a sprawling metropolis with relatively poor public transportation. Therefore it's difficult to explore the entire Metro area from a single location. it's better to pick a focus area.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful weather
  • Cons:Traffic, traffic and more traffic
  • In a nutshell:must see US city

    My travels to LA never gave me enough time to see it all, and should return one day for the rest. You did a nice presentation with pictures and comments, and especially the beaches.

    My dream in Los Angeles is to be here: Universal Studios Hollywood and some other studios (Paramount etc.).

    Great intro shot. I've had a few occasions to breeze in and out of LA and will be doing it again next month. Hopefully I'll get to check out Venice Beach this time and hit a few more highlights.
