Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Visit Venice Beach and Boardwalk and Santa Monica Beach for some beach relaxation. Kids will appreciate attractions like Disneyland Park and Will Rogers State Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Los Angeles: Hermosa Beach Pier (in Hermosa Beach) and Santa Monica Mountains (in Santa Monica). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, appreciate the history behind Watts Towers, don't miss a visit to Stahl House, and take in the waterfront at Santa Monica Pier.
