Los Angeles is a city with a lot of personalities, each neighborhood defined by its urban or seaside locale, with many celebrity and cultural influences colliding to create a crazy quilt of a destination!
We love the sunshine minus humidity, the casual style on the streets and in the shops, healthy food and outdoor activities, Amazonian palm trees, pastel vintage cars and celebrity spottings.
