Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Get outdoors at Manhattan Beach and The Wedge. Old Town Temecula and Battleship USS Iowa BB-61 are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Los Angeles: Huntington Dog Beach (in Huntington Beach) and Vindemia Estate Winery (in Temecula). There's still lots to do: look for gifts at LA Farmers' Market, wander the streets of Angelino Heights Historic Area, learn more about the world around you at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Venice Beach and Boardwalk.
