Hollywood is a major attraction, and it includes the Hollywood Sign, the Chinese Theatre, and the Walk of Fame. Some family-friendly activities in other areas of L.A. include Universal Studios, Los Angeles Zoo, Six Flags Magic Mountain, and the Santa Monica Pier's small amusement park, called Pacific Park. Of course, when you head to L.A., you're near miles of beaches that are perfect for swimming, tanning, and building sand castles. You can also take a variety of tours in L.A., ranging from whale watching on a boat to riding a bus around the city to look at breathtaking mansions where celebrities live.

Transportation and Commutes

The traffic in L.A. is famously frustrating, and some residents try to solve the problem by using the public transportation options that are available. The Metro is the most well-known bus line for getting around the city, though Greyhound also serves the area. Trains here include Amtrak, which is most often used to take residents from L.A. to San Diego and other nearby major cities. The Metro Rail is another public transportation option; it's a light rail that many people use to get from the suburbs to downtown L.A. for work. Of course, most people still prefer to drive their own car to work, but they face an average commute time of just under 30 minutes each way, which is among the longest commute times in the country. As for air travel, the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) takes care of more than 60 million travelers per year.

Neighborhood Guide

There are more than 100 neighborhoods in Los Angeles, and some are large enough to actually be considered cities in their own right. A complete rundown of every area in this major city could get long and tedious, so instead, here are some details about the basic regions of Los Angeles.

Eastside: This is the inland area of the city, so the homes tend to be more affordable. The Eastside comprises Alhambra, Commerce, Eagle Rock, and Monterey Park, among others.

Little Tokyo is also located in the downtown area, while Chinatown and Koreatown are nearby.

South L.A.: In this area, you'll find Gramercy Park, Hyde Park, and the historic South-Central district of the city. In addition, South L.A. encompasses University Park, home to the University of Southern California (USC) and the famous Shrine Auditorium.
