Los Angeles is world-renowned for being a sunshine-filled paradise as well as a social and business hub. The City of Angels is home to many fun (and free) attractions for people of all ages, such as the iconic Hollywood sign, gorgeous beaches, and a plethora of hiking trails, as well as a state park that is very affordable to visit. Thrill seekers love to spend their day at the Knott’s Berry Farm and the Universal Studios Hollywood amusement parks with their families or enjoying a nighttime movie under the stars.
