City of Angels

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

Los Angeles bills itself as the "Entertainment Capital of the World," offering tourist attractions that range from cutting-edge movie studios and amusement parks to family-run vineyards and scenic coastal roads. Indisputably one of the world's most diverse cities, Los Angeles continues to draw a huge number of immigrants from all parts of the globe, giving this giant urban center a strong cosmopolitan flavor that makes it a perfect setting for an exciting vacation. Los Angeles is in California (CA). Add Los Angeles and other destinations in United States to your travel plans using our United States trip builder tool .

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
