Developed in the 1850s, the original Los Angeles County covered a bigger area than it is today. As its population increased, the county was split to better organize future development.
Though smaller, modern Los Angeles is full to the brim with charms that keep visitors coming. With endless sunshine, palm trees, shopping malls, and beautiful people, this is a place like you’ve never been before and yet strangely familiar. As the home of Universal Studios, Hollywood, Beverley Hills, Sunset Strip and the Walk of Fame, Los Angeles has long lured people into its glittering fantasy world. And beyond the glam, Los Angeles is a wonderful, vibrant, exhilarating multi-cultural hub with plenty of things to do and discover.
