City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.

Change things up with a short trip to The Getty Villa in Malibu (about 32 minutes away). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Hollywood Bowl Museum, get advice or help at The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens, enjoy the sand and surf at Santa Monica State Beach, and get to know the fascinating history of Hollywood Walk of Fame.
