Los Angeles is the largest city in the state of California and the second largest in the United States and is often abbreviated as L.A. and nicknamed The City of Angels. The city is divided into many neighborhoods, many of which were towns that were annexed by the growing city. There are also several independent cities in and around Los Angeles, but they are popularly grouped with the city of Los Angeles, either due to being completely engulfed as enclaves by Los Angeles, or lying within its immediate vicinity. Generally, the city is divided into the following areas: Downtown Los Angeles, Northeast - including Highland Park and Eagle Rock areas, the Eastside, South Los Angeles, the Harbor Area, Hollywood, Wilshire, the Westside and the San Fernando and Crescenta Valleys. Some well-known communities of  Los Angeles include West Adams, Watts, Venice Beach, the Downtown Financial District, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Hollywood, Koreatown, Westwood and the more affluent areas of Bel Air, Benedict Canyon, Hollywood Hills, Hancock Park, Pacific Palisades, and Brentwood.  The economy of Los Angeles is driven by international trade, entertainment (television, motion pictures, recorded music), aerospace, technology, petroleum, fashion, apparel, and tourism. The contiguous ports of  Los Angeles and Long Beach together comprise the most significant port in North America. They are one of the most important ports in the world, and vital to trade within the Pacific Rim.
 
Los Angeles has a Mediterranean climate or dry-summer subtropical zone. The city experiences 325 sunny days every year with dry, warm to hot summers and cool to mild, winters with low humidity year-round.  Snow is extraordinarily rare in the city basin, but the mountainous slopes within city limits typically receive snow every year.

Los Angeles Airport (LAX) is one of the busiest airports in the world. Located on the southern coast of  California, Los Angeles International Airport handles thousands of domestic and international commercial flights every year, serving  over 80 airlines through nine terminals. Some of these airlines include: America West Airlines, Mesa Airlines, Southwest Airlines, US Airway, Air Canada, Air China, Air New Zealand, Hawaiian Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, LACSA, Northwest Airlines, TACA, Virgin Atlantic, Alaska Airlines, Frontier Airlines, American Airlines, Qantas, AeroMexico, Air France, Air Jamaica, China Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Song Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Continental Airlines, United Airlines, Air Indi, Air Pacific, Asiana Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Copa Airlines, JAL Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines, Mexicana Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Swiss International Airlines and Thai Airways 

Some of the higher public education institutes located within the city limits are: California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA), California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Private colleges in the city include the American Film Institute Conservatory, American InterContinental University, the American Musical and Dramatic Academy - Los Angeles campus,  Fashion Institute of  Design & Merchandising's Los Angeles campus (FIDM), Los Angeles Film School,  National University of  California, Occidental College ("Oxy"), Otis College of Art and Design (Otis), Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), Southwestern Law School, and University of Southern California (USC).

LA draws millions of tourists every year, catering to the unique desires of each one with unparalleled diversity and countless entertainment options. Important landmarks in Los Angeles include Chinatown, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Kodak Theatre, Griffith Observatory, Getty Museum, Univerasl Studios Hollywood, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Sign, Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame, Capitol Records Tower, Los Angeles City Hall, Hollywood Bowl, Watts Towers, Staples Center, Dodger Stadium and La Placita Olvera/Olvera Street. Nighttime hot spots include places such as Downtown Los Angeles, Silver  Lake, Hollywood, and West Hollywood, which is the home of the world-famous Sunset Strip. Take a tour through the world of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills, find the classic California surfing lifestyle at Huntington Beach, or follow the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole into the funky world of Venice Beach. California's most popular theme parks like Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and Magic Mountain are just a short drive away, making Los Angeles the perfect tourist getaway. Because of the large gay population and the large numbers of gay-oriented businesses, West Hollywood became prominently known as a gay village. The section of Santa Monica Boulevard from La Cienega Boulevard to Robertson Boulevard, known as "boys' town," is among the most popular gay neighborhoods in the world.

The beaches are also famous attractions in LA. Just a 30-minute drive from Downtown LA,  Santa Monica Pier is within walking distance of the Third Street Promenade, which is filled with restaurants, interesting stores, outdoor cafes and all sorts of live entertainment on the streets. Further south of Santa Monica is the Venice Beach Boardwalk, famous for electic people, unique shops and tattoo parlors. The famous Muscle Beach gives passersby's the opportunity to watch hunky men working out. 

Some well-known shopping areas are the Hollywood and Highland complex, the Beverly Center, Melrose Avenue, Robertson Boulevard, Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, The Grove, Westside Pavilion, The Promenade at Howard Hughes Center and Venice Boardwalk. The very famous Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long. But those three short blocks constitute the most famous shopping district in America, and probably the most expensive three blocks of shops in the world. It is here that the rich & famous do their shopping, and where tourists window-shop while trying to spot movie stars on the fabled street. The most celebrated clothing designers in the world have boutiques here such as Armani, Gucci, Christian Dior, Coco Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Valentino. The jewelry stores boast names like Cartier and Tiffany. Other nearby stores include I. Magnin, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Yves Saint Laurent, & Pierre Deux. In fact, Rodeo Drive is home to the single most expensive store in the world " Bijan". You must make an appointment in advance just to shop at Bijan (which was named after its Iranian owner). On a typical visit, Bijan's average customer spends in the neighborhood of $100,000 on men's fashions, which range from a $50 pair of socks to $15,000 suits. And did you ever wonder what store Julia Roberts was snubbed in, in "Pretty Woman"? Well, it was a woman's clothing store named Boulmiche, located just a few steps west of  Rodeo, at 9501 Santa Monica Blvd.

For the golfers, North Course at Los Angeles, touted as one of the best in southern California, is a private, 18-hole golf course that has a prime location in the heart of L.A.'s most valuable real estate area. This exclusive course is a popular choice because of the picturesque scenery and challenging day of golf it provides. The prime location of the North Course provides interesting views during your game, past the 13th green is the Playboy Mansion and the 11th hole, a difficult par-3 reverse-Redan, has the L.A. skyline as a backdrop.
