Soul Of America Los Angeles

WELCOME TO LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Beauty spas, celebrities, beaches, extravagant cars and theme parks are merely opening acts in this oft ungainly, but always exciting and expansive region. Absent a master landscaping plan, the world’s most extensive freeway system is the connective tissue that sews together Downtown, Exposition Park, Mid-Wilshire, Miracle Mile, Hollywood, Universal City, Pasadena, Beverly Hills, Century City, Bel Air, Westwood, Westside, Santa Monica, Venice, Crenshaw, Baldwin Hills, Long Beach, and Anaheim. Each has a unique calling to visitors, and each is identified by freeway exit signs as much as by city or district boundaries.
In this megatropolis, Downtown remains the dominant center for culture, government, finance, sports and value shopping. A lively nightclub and restaurant scene and a little known movie studio that caters to TV and commercial production on Downtown streets are just a taste of what's to come. You’ve seen LA’s 73-story cylindrical skyscraper in more movies than you can count, and the polished architecture of the nearby Gas Company, Sanwa Bank, IBM, Wells Fargo and California Center skyscrapers stand out with equal merit. Lowering your sight line, the boldly eclectic Disney Concert Hall, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Music Center, Colburn School of Dance, Central Library, Union Station, Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, and the Coca Cola Building present some of the best eye-candy in lotus land. Downtown LA also has the largest Fashion District in the nation. Get a great deal on rings and things at the Jewelry District. Have a taste for authentic Mexican food, culture and momentos? Drop by Alvera Street where the city was founded. Then hustle over to Little Tokyo for sushi and the new Japanese American Museum. Just north of the City Hall is Chinatown, with all the Dim Sum you can handle. And now, more than $10 billion of investment has attracted a blizzard of upscale residential, retail and entertainment construction in the southern part of Downtown.
