Districts

Downtown
The central business district of the city of Los Angeles, Downtown is also home to the city's Grand Avenue cultural corridor.

However, in recent years, the area has seen a booming revival led by new residential buildings, with trendy hotels, bars, shops and restaurants.
Eastside
A funkier area north of downtown and east of Hollywood that's rapidly gentrifying.
Harbor Area
Home of the largest sea port in the States, and the launching point for trips to Catalina Island.
Hollywood
The place where movies are made. It has received quite a makeover in recent years, sparked by the construction of Hollywood & Highland and the return of the Academy Awards.
San Fernando Valley
The northern suburban portion of Los Angeles, lying in a valley northwest of downtown, containing various districts.
South Central
It's long had a reputation for gang violence and is famed for the Rodney King riots, but while it remains off most peoples radar, there are a handful of things to see and it's slowly working to repair its bruised image.
Westside
Generally more affluent area of town near the ocean
Wilshire
Home of the historic architecture of the Miracle Mile District, the Farmer's Market and The Grove shopping areas, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CBS Television City, and the famous La Brea Tar Pits.
