A Guide for Travelers to Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles is an architectural kaleidoscope. As you explore the warm, southern California city, you'll find odd contrasts:
  • Hollywood movie star homes and tacky Googie architecture,
  • trend-breaking modernist architecture and wacky amusement park buildings,
  • Spanish Colonial missions and Frank Lloyd Wright houses.
Located near the San Andreas Fault, Los Angeles is prone to earthquakes. Perhaps that's why so much of its architecture is new and innovative.
