Los Angeles, California

Category: Urban


Los Angeles, also known as L.A., is California’s most populated city and the second-most populated city in the U.S. (after New York City). Known as the “City of Angels”, it is an international hub that has strong foundations in business, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, technology and much more.

This “Creative Capital of the World” has long attracted artists, filmmakers, writers, actors, musicians and dancers. It is also one of the fastest growing and most ethnically diverse cities in the U.S. Because it sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, it is prone to thousands of earthquakes each year and can be vulnerable to tsunamis.
