Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the world, and although it has a reputation for being the sunny city, which is full of excitement, entertainment, shopping centres and Hollywood, it actually has a huge amount more to offer than just this, including a wide variety of cultural sites, and large scale park areas where rest, relaxation and fun can be found. The main urban zone is spread out across a huge area, and it can take over two hours to cross from one side to the other by car. Within this area, there are an abundance of shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars, as well as over 800 cultural museums and art galleries, including the Getty Centre, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Page Museum at La Brea Discoveries.
Los Angeles is a stunning city, which is situated in a natural beauty spot facing out towards the Pacific Ocean. One of the most fascinating places to visit is the magnificent Griffith Park, which is one of the largest urban parks in the world. It is the perfect place to relax, explore, exercise, picnic, do a spot of photography and even witness the stars. Not only is there the observatory, but the park has been used to host many movie scenes, and if visitors are lucky enough, they may encounter the film set of one of the latest blockbuster films. Access to the park is easy from most areas of the city, and regular buses and trains operate to the park’s edge.
