What to do in Los Angeles : Tips, places, hotels and restaurants
Located in California, Los Angeles is the second city in the USA, just after New York. Its metropolitan area has a little more than eighteen million people. Nicknamed the City of Angels, it enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers. A feature of the city is that it extends over 100 kilometres from north to south, and it has no real downtown. Tourism is of major importance, with centres of attraction such as Disneyland Park or the Universal Studios in Hollywood. Other must-see places such as Sunset Boulevard, Melrose Avenue and the Beverly Hills boutiques attract visitors, as well as Venice and Malibu Beach. A number of museums are also worth a visit, for example the Los Angeles County Art Museum, the Museum of Neon Art, and the California Science Centre. Several places offer musical or theatrical performances, and graffiti and murals can be seen in many parts of the city. Do not miss the many buildings boasting remarkable architecture: The Los Angeles Central Library with its Egyptian overtones, the Bradbury Building in an Italian Renaissance style, and several skyscrapers over 200 meters high. It is advisable to rent a car to visit the city in the most convenient way possible.
