Los Angeles, the City of Angels, is of course best known for being the epicentre of the American entertainment industry, but it is also a city that has something to offer for very diverse of people.

Many neighbourhoods in Los Angeles are connected by what are known as ‘secret staircases’, which have been inherited by the city from a time before mass transportation, and they offer a way to get to know the city more intimately.

Some other lesser known attractions are Echo Park Lake and the Botanical Garden at Huntington Library, great places for those who want to relax far away from the huge crowds often associated with L.A.

Student Opinions About Studying in Los Angeles

“The locals here avoid the most touristy beaches and instead prefer beaches like El Matador, Cabrillo, Topanga and Abalone Cove. These are great ways to relax in this busy city without having to deal with huge crowds of tourists.”

“I made the mistake of not selecting my apartment based on the location of my university, so I ended up commuting for 2 hours every day which I really wish I could have avoided. Overall though the city is very alive and offers plenty of events and opportunities for connecting with people involved in the entertainment industry.”

“It can be hard to make friends in L.A sometimes because it seems like most people are mainly worried about advancing their careers and not much else. If you’re studying, make sure you take advantage of the clubs and societies available on your campus for meeting like-minded people, but if you’re not studying there are plenty of Facebook groups you can join with this purpose in mind.”
