Los Angeles is alive with excitement, culture, diversity, art and of course, entertainment, 24/7. From museums and theme parks to the rich and famous, L.A. has a culture all its own. Cheer on one of several professional sports teams or tour Universal Studios Hollywood to get a behind-the-scenes look at how movies are made. Discover the charm of downtown’s neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Olvera Street and Koreatown. Rub elbows with the stars on Rodeo Drive, go celebrity watching at a trendy Hollywood restaurant or compare your handprints to theirs outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
