Los Angeles is one of America’s most famous cities, and has so many cultural icons to visit; sometimes it is hard to know where to begin. Has been nicknamed the city of Angels, it has a name that derives from the Spanish for ‘the Angels’, and actually is part of its longer original name, which is 14 words long. Los Angeles is a really huge city, in fact; it is the second largest in the United States (with New York of course being the largest).
Whether you have downloaded any Los Angeles wallpapers or have seen its many famous locations on television or on film, really it is even more exciting to visit in person. Hollywood, of course, is one its most famous areas, although no major film production goes on there today. Perhaps what still draws many people to this area is the knowledge that the many stars of the past once made so many classic movies in this area and there are still so many references to them in the sights you can see today, from the iconic Hollywood sign, to the stars of the Hollywood Boulevard. Other famous districts in Los Angeles include Pasadena and Beverly Hills.
One famous thing that Los Angeles is famous for, in the natural world, is its risk of earthquakes. Visitors to the area that have no knowledge of earthquake safety may want to seek advice, although it has to be said, that of the many earthquakes that the city experiences, most are too small to be felt, and only a small fraction of these will be at risk of causing serious injury.
So, when you visit Los Angeles, I feel that it will live up the glamorous images you may have on the Los Angeles wallpapers you may have downloaded.
