The sunny “City of Angels” on the coast of California is an entertainment epicenter. L.A. is home to Hollywood, the Santa Monica Mountains, and literally hundreds of museums, art galleries, and creative exhibits. With numerous colleges and universities (including the University of California and the California State University) as well as music, drama, film, art, and design schools, you’ll find a strong, creative higher education culture. The bus, subway, and light rail systems provide an easy network for getting to and fro, and the Los Angeles International Airport is right there.
While having a car to commute around LA is certainly convenient, there are so many other ways to get around town. The LA Metro bus and rail system connects the suburbs to Downtown and even provides a 24-Hour Owl Service for adventures that last until dawn. You can also use the Metro to connect to different bike routes, and certain neighborhoods are known for being pedestrian friendly as well.
