The city of Los Angeles (LA) is the largest city in California and the second largest in the US, located on the coast in southwestern part of California

LA is best known as the center of the US film industry, and on-location filming does still take place locally, but most actual film shooting is now done in other places owing to high costs and other factors.

It retains its central role in deal-making and movie premieres, and is also a major center for production of television shows and commercials, as well as music recordings.

It is also surrounded by mountain ranges, with beautiful beaches and desert nearby, offering diverse outdoor activities.

LA is huge, sprawling, and known for its highway traffic (with few public transportation options), so timing ground travel to avoid traffic gridlock periods (eg, during rush hour) makes the journey much more pleasant.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
