LA: Not Just Tinseltown

Contrary to  popular belief, there’s a lot more to Los Angeles than movie stars and rich, frivolous types, and plenty of action takes place away from the streets of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

Sure, there’s a lot of the movie industry around, and the excitement of spotting a movie star never goes away. But jaded locals don’t run around asking for autographs or snapping pictures of celebrities. That’s for the paparazzi, and no self-respecting Angeleno would be caught doing that.

Exciting as the movie industry is, when I moved to Los Angeles from the Washington D.C. area, I decided I would make an effort to discover other fascinating facets of this city and its surroundings, which most people don’t hear much about. This blog is about my “incursions” into in the L.A. area. I hope you enjoy my “discoveries” and share your knowledge and insights into L.A. living.
