A little about Los Angeles:

The City of the Angels is located at the epicenter of the entertainment, manufacturing, aerospace, finance, trade and transportation industries. Its long and illustrious relationship with the media and entertainment industry keeps LA on the cutting edge of all the cultural influences of the country. Los Angeles (LA) is home to several of the top real estate locations in the world, among them Hollywood and Malibu Beach, and it claims several of the country’s finest higher education institutions.

It is difficult to define the “greater Los Angeles area” as its sprawl covers a gigantic area of California. Suffice it to say it is California’s largest city, second only to New York City. Los Angeles and Orange counties are home to some 12.9 million people. The city of Los Angeles itself has a population of about 3.8 million. It covers over approximately 503 square miles.

The world famous area known as Hollywood, glamour capital of the world, is near Downtown Los Angeles. Magnet to the stars and the wannabe stars of movies, music and TV, Hollywood remains one of the most enduring attractions of this great and unique city.

Open since 1955 in nearby Anaheim, Disneyland is an epic American theme park of The Walt Disney Company. Disneyland holds the distinction of being the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself and Disneyland is considered the quintessential theme park of all time. Disneyland has been visited by more than 600 million people from all walks of life. The park is unique and though often imitated, remains true to the vision of Walt Disney despite the changing tastes and cultures of those who visit it.

The economy of Los Angeles is driven by international trade, entertainment (television, motion pictures, video games, recorded music), aerospace, technology, petroleum, fashion, apparel, and tourism. Los Angeles is also the largest manufacturing center in the western United States. The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach together comprise the fifth-busiest port in the world. These two ports are the most significant ports in the Western Hemisphere and they are vital to trade within the Pacific Rim.

Other significant industries include media production, finance, telecommunications, law, healthcare, and transportation.

LA is home to six Fortune 500 companies—energy company Occidental Petroleum, healthcare provider Health Net, metals distributor Reliance Steel & Aluminum, engineering firm AECOM, real estate group CBRE Group and builder Tutor Perini.

There are numerous colleges and universities located within the LA area: some of the more famous are USC and UCLA.

Auto Transport on the Freeways

LA is famous for its numerous freeways that were once hailed as marvels of engineering and traffic design, but are now synonymous with gridlock and traffic jams.
