For over a century, Los Angeles has been a magnet for dreamers, artists and, most of all, the ambitious. The lifestyle, however, is very pleasant, thanks to the superb Californian climate, the steadying influence of the Pacific Ocean and the healthy living ethos that many in LA subscribe to. Of course, if you enjoy late nights and bleary mornings, there is a bewildering array of night time entertainment available to suit all tastes... you can find out first hand why Hollywood stars struggle to stay “on the wagon”.
Los Angeles’ beaches are beautiful and allow you to try the whole gamut of water sports under the warm sun. The drive along the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu is spectacular, especially as the sun is starting to set over the ocean. You can find a sandy spot among the beachside villas and enjoy the vastness of nature. With the Santa Monica Mountains on one side and the Ocean on the other, it’s possible to forget you’re on the edge of one of the world’s iconic cities. From broad boulevards to tiny boutiques, kooky houses on Venice Beach to the grandest Bel Air palaces, from greasy hamburgers to the freshest Californian sushi... this is LA and there is nowhere else on earth like it.
