Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.

There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, buy something for everyone on your list at The Grove, engage your brain at California Science Center, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Hollywood Walk of Fame.
