More Information


Los Angeles Culture

The Los Angeles culture is one filled with lots of money and lots of dreams. Most people seem to be aspiring to be famous, and have day jobs to pay the bills until that day comes when they will see their name in bright lights. Remember that the next time you notice how good-looking the waiters and waitresses are.

The people of Los Angeles are a unique bunch. You

are likely to see a famous movie star, director, screenwriter, singer…or fill in the blanks… and many more who aspire to be the aforementioned.

But Los Angeles is not simply home to Hollywood’s rich and famous; it is also home to large ethnic communities. People from all over the world have made it their home. This is apparent when you drive around town and see Thai town, Little Tokyo, Little Armenia, Korea Town, Little Ethiopia, and Spanish words on billboards and store windows. A large percentage of residents are at least part Hispanic.

Unlike many big cities, Los Angeles is a true melting pot. Look around and you will see many people of mixed backgrounds, and many more who speak more than one language. Angelenos are laid back people who enjoy the sun, and like to drive fancy cars.

Los Angeles Shopping

If you like to shop, than you are going to love to shop until you drop in Los Angeles. There are plenty of trends to find while you window shop or charge your card to the max. You can find everything that the stars wear, but be prepared to pay for those designer clothes.

Enjoy the beautiful weather by shopping in one of the outdoor malls and shopping areas. Take your pick

from Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, Century City Plaza, or the most famous of them all, Rodeo Drive. Or visit Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard, but be aware of paparazzi trying to snap pictures of your favorite actor and actress.

If it isn’t sunny outside, head to one of the indoor malls. The big favorite is the Beverly Center where you just may spot your favorite celebrity choosing a new outfit.
