Frank Loyd Wright once said "Tip the world on its side, and everything loose will land in Los Angeles". LA is a city of dreams, stars, and freeways. It can be a surreal place to visit, partly because even if it's your first time in the City of Angels, you feel a nostalgia for the place. These sights, you've seen before on TV, in the movies. This feeling of bright warm sunshine, the visual of the palm tree lined streets, - it's so familiar. LA is certainly one of the most culturally influential cities of the world. Hollywood has become synonymous with the movie industry as well as celebrity culture, but it's also a city of creativity and new ideas - the motion picture industry that took hold here was more of a consequence of this creative ideology than the precursor to it. The scale of LA is almost too daunting to take in, but scaled down to it's famous neighborhoods, beaches, and landmarks you'll find LA's true identity.
