BeschreibungThrough the television and motion picture media, just about everyone has seen the palm-lined neighbourhoods of Beverly Hills, the bikini-clad beauties of Malibu, and the San Gabriel Mountain backdrop of Pasadena's Rose Bowl. Yet beyond those images lies a city of unparalleled economic and industrial diversity, with earnest sophistication in the cultural arts, and an international mix of populations. Attractions include Disneyland, Fisherman's Village, Hollywood's Walk of Fame, Universal Studios, and the Wrigley estate (a former mansion owned by the family of chewing gum fame and now the headquarters for the Tournament of Roses). Highlights include the essentials: transportation, lodging, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, and day and weekend adventures outside the city. Key maps of the city are provided at the beginning for quick reference. This informative guide is ideal for tourists, new residents, and natives alike. The calendar of special events in this volume, along with an extensive list of sporting events, can help you plan exciting sightseeing tours.
Itineraries for one-day excursions are given for such destinations as Catalina Island, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, Big Bear Lake, and more.
