Los Angeles Sights
Overview of Sights
Los Angeles maybe perceived as a sprawling metropolis from the desert to the ocean-but the reality is the main sights that represent a large makeup and population of the city are within a 20 mile-square rectangle radius from the beach to Hollywood. Hollywood and Venice Beach are the two most popular sights and have high numbers of tourists but are also good points to capture tour buses for the more off the beaten path areas of LA.
