Los Angeles is a city in the state of California, located on the west coast of the United States, and is the center of the nation's television & movie industry. It is the second most populated city in the United States, which is home to almost 4 million people! I explored Los Angeles around the Santa Monica and Venice Beach area, and I loved it! The diverse population amazed me, along with the carefree vibe around these beautiful beaches. The Santa Monica Pier was such a neat spot, and was in walking distance from where I stayed at Air Venice on the Beach. This hotel was in the perfect spot along the beach, and was in the heart of the Venice Beach area. I stayed in a Room with Partial Ocean View (#18), and it was simple and perfect. I definitely plan to travel back to Los Angeles, one day, to explore much more!
