Los Angeles, California. Aside from the Big Apple, is there any other place in America that might legitimately call itself the Center of the Universe? In the case of Los Angeles, it is the center of the entertainment universe and has more legitimate movie stars per square inch than just about any other place on earth.
And so visitors come for the glamour and the glitz, for a chance to catch the sight of a star maybe just going to the supermarket or walking in quasi-designer cut-offs and tee-shirts down Melrose Avenue. They come to see how movies are made, how television shows are produced, to be thrilled by the area's amusement parks and to soak up the endless sunshine on beaches populated by the most beautiful people in the world.
