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

Venture out of the city with trips to The Queen Mary (in Long Beach) and Santa Monica (Third Street Promenade, Montana Avenue, & more). Pack the 7th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, look for gifts at Amoeba Music, take in the exciting artwork at Annenberg Space for Photography, and get a new perspective on nature at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum.
