The Biggest City On The West Coast
Los Angeles (City of Angels) is the treasure of California, one of the largest, most beautiful and attractive cities in the United States – a trip to the biggest city on the Pacific Coast will convince you that words simply are not enough to describe all the wonderful places in Los Angeles.
The city was founded in 1781 and it was first called El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula (now THAT is a long name!). It has experienced rapid growth primarily due to its rich natural resources, but also due to the mild Mediterranean climate and generous natural landscapes, which have always attracted tourists and people who wanted to settle here as well. Today, Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States.

You haven’t visited L.A. if you haven’t seen Hollywood (the district of Los Angeles whose name became synonymous with the film industry during the last century) and especially its main attraction, the world-famous Hollywood Sign, installed in Griffith Park.
In Hollywood you will find the houses of many celebrities such as Paris Hilton’s – a house that can not remain unnoticed due to the huge area that it stretches.
The Grauman’s Chinese Theatre is one of the most famous and popular theaters in the world and has hosted the premieres of many magnificent shows.
The Walk of Fame is a place where many would want to see their name written – who haven’t dreamed at least once in their lifetime of being a movie star and have their own star on the Walk of Fame?
A sightseeing attraction that recently became popular in Los Angeles is the The Tragical History Tour – a circuit that includes houses of late celebrities. One of this attractions is the house where The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has lived the last days of his life.
After Hollywood, the next must-see in Los Angeles is Beverly Hills. The residential district of movie stars is one of the most expensive areas in California, where the properties are true fortresses, surrounded by high walls and guarded by bodyguards.
