About This Quiz

Los Angeles is a pretty special place. It is, after all, the second most populous city in the entire US of A and the most populous city in the state of California. Los Angeles has a long and storied history, from its founding by Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, to its becoming part of Mexico, to its initiation into the United States with the rest of California in 1848. Known as the City of Angels, Los Angeles is home to Hollywood, the movie capital of the world. 

If you find yourself in Los Angeles, you know you have to see awesome sights like the Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Griffith Observatory, and the Staples Center. It would also be a good idea to take a peek at what the coast has to offer since the city's placement on the Pacific Ocean has been one of the major reasons that it has thrived throughout the years.
