"This is L.A." Los Angeles by spgood301

Los Angeles is an huge, exciting place that I'm glad I've gotten the chance to know. It's America's second largest city in population, center of the entertainment industry, home to miles and miles of both freeways and beaches, and it's got TONS of things to do. Wanna catch some rays? See the beautiful people? Have a great meal? Ride a roller coaster? Nothing better than cruising down an LA street, to get that LA attitude-so much fun!

I hope my tips give you a taste of the "City of Angels". I spent three months living and working there, and it was quite an experience.

Crazy, cool LA. You gotta love it!!!

Where I Lived in LA

Our company put me up in a beautiful apartment complex in the Hollywood hills, with lots of aspiring actors and actresses living there. You can see many headshots in the little general store-no one I recognized. One girl I met swore she'd seen me on TV...too bad I really have a face for radio!

Every morning when I went to work, this is the first thing I saw. Pretty cool, huh?

I got the sunset every night over, well, the adjacent building. Not the greatest sunset in the world, but still not bad either.

Oh, and did I mention that the pool wasn't bad?

Not bad for a New York boy!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The weather, all the cool things to do
  • Cons:Everything's so spread out-you'd better have a car if you go there
  • In a nutshell:What can I say, it's LA
