Moving to L.A.?  Los Angeles, the City of Angels, is the second-largest city in the United States and the largest city in California with an estimated population of about 3.85 million.  Los Angeles is renowned around the world for Hollywood- without a doubt the world’s leading producer of popular entertainment such as movies, television, and popular music.  Considered home to many celebrities, the entertainment industry is what gives L.A. its extraordinary international fame.

California is also famous for its earthquakes.  This is because fault lines are present in southern California, in particular, the San Andreas Fault.  Although earthquakes occur in a number of states such as Washington, Oregon, or Alaska, people are more aware of Los Angeles’ earthquakes due to their frequency and their effect on highly populated areas.  In fact, up until 1957 there was a law in L.A. against building any structure having more than 13 stories.  For this reason, you may notice that Los Angeles is not as “tall” as other major U.S. cities and actually sprawls out for miles.

Fun Facts about Los Angeles:
  • In L.A. you “are what you drive,” but the city also has the country’s largest public transportation system, with more than 1,500 buses and a light rail system. 

  • Visiting Los Angeles’ La Brea Tar Pits is like taking a glimpse millions of years into the past.  At the La Brea Tar Pits, visitors can see residue from the days when dinosaurs still inhabited the Earth.  The tar is even oozing in some places!

  • Did you know?  The city of Los Angeles’ full name is actually “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula.”  By abbreviating the name to L.A., one is actually reducing the name to just 3.63% of its original length!
