Basic Facts and Information About Los Angeles

LA is famous for being not only the cultural, but also financial and commercial center of Southern California. It is home to nearly 4 million people (as of 2016), and is a bustling metropolitan area – full of culture and life.

It is (of course) famous for being home to Hollywood, along with numerous celebrities and the Hollywood Sign. There are plenty of other great landmarks to check out however, including things like: the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Dodger Stadium and much more.

In terms of temperature, Los Angeles only has about 35 days (on average) per year of rain. It is unique in that temperatures can vary depending on where you are in the city. For example, during summer it may be around 95 degrees in Canoga Park, but only 75 down at Santa Monica Pier. This means if you get hot or cold, you can literally just move to a different area of LA for a bit and have a totally new climate! How cool is that?

Enough of the boring stuff though, you can look that up on your own. If you want a real from-the-ground perspective of LA, check out my recent posts instead!
