Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Annenberg Community Beach House and Venice Canals Walkway. For shopping fun, head to Abbot Kinney Boulevard or The Grove. Venture out of the city with trips to Santa Monica (Third Street Promenade & Santa Monica Mountains), Anaheim (Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, & more) and State Street Underpass (in Santa Barbara). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, explore the world behind art at Diorama-museum of Bhagavad-gita, stroll through Will Rogers State Beach, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
