Colleges In Los Angeles County

When it comes to counties in the state of California Los Angeles County has to be mentioned. It has the largest population in the entire United States. Just last year in 2008, its population was estimated at 9,862,049 and with one visit to the county, it would be easy to see why.

Celebrities are there. The weather is nice. The jobs include acting and modeling. All around Los Angeles County is a great place to live if you love nightlife and the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Appropriately, the county seat is Los Angeles. That is also the largest city in the state of California. The county was part of the original counties when California entered statehood in 1850. Los Angles County has 70 miles that border the Pacific Ocean for beaches and beaches of rest and relaxation.

Beaches are a great addition to the county, but that is not all. There are mountain ranges, valleys, forests, islands, lakes, rivers, and deserts. The county literally has something for everyone even if your favorite outdoor activities are done in the dead of winter.

The majority of the population lives in the Los Angeles Basin and the valleys of San Fernando and San Gabriel. Santa Clarita Valley is mountainous and has blizzards that are so rough that the area is less populated than others in Los Angeles County.

The county is divided into 4 areas. It is so large that this is helpful when visiting and choosing where you live if that comes into play. The east includes Eastside, San Gabriel Valley, and Pomona Valley. Westside and the beach cities are part of the west. The south includes South Bay, Palos Verdes, and South LA. In the north, you have San Fernando Valley and parts of the Antelope Valley. Last is the central division and that is the party seen. There you will find downtown LA and Mid-Wilshire.

88 incorporated cities make up the Los Angeles County. The most popular include LA, Long Beach, Glendale, Santa Clarita, and Pomona. Other notable cities include Inglewood, Burbank, and Pasadena.

Transportation in Los Angeles County can be coined as busy and crowded. The congested freeway is patrolled by the California Highway Patrol. There are also several major highways, air, train, sea and local transportation buses to help visitors and residents get around the county.

Los Angeles County would be nothing without its vast industries. They are international trade, motion picture and television production, music recording, aerospace, law and medicine. We all have heard of the major companies within the entertainment industry that are located here. 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. and Walt Disney are just a few.

When it comes to education, no one has more choices for schools than Los Angeles County. There are several colleges and universities like Pepperdine, California State University-Long Beach, Fuller Theological Seminary, Santa Monica College, and a list of many others. There are hundreds of churches too.

Griffith Park is worth visiting when you choose Los Angeles County for a vacation destination. Santa Monica Pier was featured in the show Three’s Company. There are museums, the Staples Center, lakes for fishing, Dodger Stadium and Whiskey a Go Go, made famous by The Doors. The major attraction is Six Flags Magic Mountain followed by Hurricane Harbor and Universal Studios Hollywood.

Other attractions at Los Angeles County include the U.S. Bank Tower, Queen Mary, and the Central Los Angeles Library. Los Angeles County has activities that will blow your mind. There is always something to do, every day of the week all year long. Outdoor and indoor recreation is available around every turn.
