Los Angeles

Hollywood glam is inescapable in this southern Californian city that thrives on big screen dreams and motivation to achieve. Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States and it is the dominant home base for television and movie productions in the US. But not everything has to do with a walk of fame. The city is a quick ride to pristine beaches, and forest preserves, and local residents can opt for a walk to the top of the hill that displays the famous Hollywood sign that shines brightly over the city of stars.
