"There are so many hidden treasures, do not be afraid to explore"
Score 5.0 / 5
Los Angeles is the single most iconic location of the world, which encompasses an entire culture, lifestyle, and region; that goes well beyond its official city limits. Angelinos are very nonchalant, minding their own business but if you ask a question, they are a wealth of information on directions, food, traffic, weather, etc. Driving is an absolute must if you want to really experience and see the city. Public transportation has steadily been improving but more work is needed. Everything is determined by the length of time that it takes to arrive from point A to B; distance is not a factor. You will never go hungry; there is food everywhere you look and most food establishments are open early and close late. There are so many hidden treasures, do not be afraid to explore & get lost and try new things. There are many famous iconic places to visit and take pictures of, but the best places to visit are those you are unfamiliar with or have never heard of. It is true that within 15 minutes to 2-hour drive (subjected to traffic); you can be at a beach, desert, lake, mountain, snow, valley, etc.
