Los Angeles or L.A. is located in southern California. It is a very big city and has over 3.8 million people. It is also very busy and it is one of the most crowded cities in the U.S. There are many beaches in L.A. because it is located on the Pacific Ocean. It is rather warm there; the average annual temperature is 24 degrees but in summer it is over 30 degrees Celsius. Every year a lot of tourists come to visit many museums, galleries and art centres, which are located there.
