Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Let the collections at The Getty Center and Griffith Observatory capture your imagination. Montana Avenue and The Disney Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Los Angeles: Anaheim (Oak Canyon Nature Center & Disneyland Park), AllWater Charters & Boat Rentals (in Dana Point) and Santa Monica (Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica Mountains, & more). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, explore the activities along Santa Monica Bay, wander the streets of Abbot Kinney Boulevard, and take in a show at Melrose Trading Post.
