The city is closely associated with the world of entertainment – with good reason – but if you take a closer look, you may find that Los Angeles has more to offer than you've ever imagined.
The area is home to many renowned schools of higher education, including the University of Southern California (USC), University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Cal State Los Angeles, Long Beach, Northridge and Fullerton Pepperdine University, Loyola Marymount University and Occidental College.
The Los Angeles offers a wide variety of housing options, including exciting new housing developments in the revitalized downtown area. Whether it's city or suburban housing you're looking for, by the beach in the hills or in the center of the action, you will love where you live in LA.
Almost any outdoor activity that comes to mind can be enjoyed in and around Los Angeles. Surfing, cycling, hiking, swimming, golfing, fishing, running, shopping – even skiing and snowboarding are options if you're willing to drive an hour or two out of the city. In fact, driving is even considered recreation in LA!
Los Angeles is without a doubt the entertainment capital of the world. From a night out at the movies to spending a day at the studios where the movies are made, you'll never run out of entertainment options in this city. World-famous theme parks, zoos, casinos and theaters are located throughout the area.
World-class chefs, like Wolfgang Puck and Nobu Matsuhisa, not only began in Los Angeles but continue to operate popular restaurants in our city. From Pink's Hot Dogs to Tommy's Burgers to the best in Mexican, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Caribbean, Persian and you-name-it cuisine, LA has it all.
The arts are truly embraced in this city. From the new Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA to the Huntington Library in Pasadena to the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center, Los Angeles is home to countless world-renowned centers of artistic appreciation and celebration.
If it's nightlife you're looking for, you'll find plenty of it in this city. From dance clubs to karaoke bars to comedy, magic and live music clubs, Los Angeles offers one of the most diverse and "alive" nightlife scenes anywhere. We do enjoy the sun here in Los Angeles, but we also like it when the sun goes down.
