The Bright Lights of Los Angeles

Los Angeles is also call L A and is the largest city in the state of California. It has hosted the Olympic Games twice once in 1932 and once again in 1984.

There are numerous shopping areas in the Los Angeles area that are distinctly ethnic and that also should not be missed, such as Little India, Chinatown, Olviera Street, and Japan town. The so called Golden Triangle holds more wealth and fine stores than most small countries. At its centre is the renowned Rodeo Drive. It is the street on which Julia Roberts had her shopping spree in Pretty Woman. It is the street that sports designer stores such as Tiffanys, Cartier, Chanel, Bally, Gucci and other well-heeled notables. This is also the street that few people who do not spend their life in front of the camera can afford. On nearby Wilshire Blvd, there is the Regent Beverly Wilshire, Niketown, Barneys, and, yes, the Winona Saks Fifth Avenue. And throughout the Triangle, you will see a curious collection of nouveau riche types sauntering about that will make you feel like you are watching an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous.

This city offers one of the most diverse arrays of bars and clubs. LA is one of the busiest cities where one slaves away all day working the 9 to 5 shift and then whisks away the nights and weekends in its vast nightlife scene. As soon as the sun begins to go down in Los Angeles people begin crossing the streets of Hollywood with their instruments as they set up for the next gig. The bright lights overwhelm the city and the night has just begun. In this city that never sleeps with it is blinding lights there are a plentyfull of bars and clubs up and down the streets of Hollywood, martini bars in Westwood, rooftop lounges in the Valley and sports bars in Sanata Monica and all the beach cities. There is something for every ones taste.

Today LA boasts attractions like the famous Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame, which honours those who have made a difference in film, music and stage. Walking and sight seeing tours are a great way to see and experience Hollywood. Everything is located near the Graumans Chinese Theatre where film and music enthusiasts can place their hands in the handprints and shoeprints of their favourite celebrities. Guided bus tours also of Hollywood offer an outside glimpse of the homes of the famous and rich.

Some of the best concerts in music history have been played at the Hollywood Bowl, another major Los Angeles attraction. This huge historical venue has been the playing stage for huge acts such as Frank Sinatra and The Beatles.
