Los Angeles is a geographically diverse city, known for the ability for visitors and natives alike to ski in the mountains and surf at the world famous beaches, all in the same sunny day.
In addition to its Spanish heritage, and differing population, LA has a long history with the film industry. Because it provides so many celebrities with the latest and greatest in luxury shops, hotels and services, it also is on the cutting edge of luxury for the entire world.
