Los Angeles, commonly referred to as L.A., holds the distinction of being the commercial, financial, and cultural hub of Southern California. As the largest city in California and the second-most populous city in the United States, after New York City, Los Angeles stands as one of the world’s most densely populated metropolises. With approximately 3.9 million residents within the city limits as of 2020, Los Angeles is renowned for its Mediterranean climate, diverse ethnic and cultural makeup, status as the epicenter of the Hollywood film industry, and its expansive metropolitan area.

The city of Los Angeles is situated in a basin in Southern California, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, extending partially through the Santa Monica Mountains, and reaching into the San Fernando Valley, with the San Gabriel Valley to the east. Encompassing an area of about 469 square miles (1,210 km2), it serves as the county seat of Los Angeles County, which boasts a staggering estimated population of 9.86 million residents as of 2022, making it the most populous county in the United States.

Los Angeles boasts a diverse and thriving economy with a wide range of industries. It is home to one of the busiest container ports in the Americas. In 2018, the Los Angeles metropolitan area recorded a gross metropolitan product exceeding $1.0 trillion, ranking it as the city with the third-largest GDP in the world, following New York City and Tokyo. Los Angeles has hosted the Summer Olympics twice, in 1932 and 1984, and is slated to host the 2028 Summer Olympics. However, the region has also faced challenges related to statewide droughts, placing strain on the city’s and Los Angeles County’s water resources.

The climate in Los Angeles is characterized by two seasons: a dry summer and a very mild winter. It falls within the boundaries of a Mediterranean climate, though it receives less annual precipitation compared to most other Mediterranean regions, narrowly missing the classification of a semi-arid climate. Daytime temperatures remain temperate throughout the year, averaging around 68 °F (20 °C) in winter, giving it a tropical ambiance, albeit a few degrees cooler than a true tropical climate due to cooler night temperatures. Los Angeles experiences abundant sunshine, with an average of only 35 days of measurable precipitation annually.

Temperatures in the coastal basin can exceed 90 °F (32 °C) on approximately a dozen days per year, ranging from one day a month in April, May, June, and November to three days a month in July, August, October, and up to five days in September. The San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys tend to have warmer temperatures. There are significant daily temperature fluctuations, with inland areas experiencing a difference of over 30 °F (17 °C) between the average daily low and high. The average annual sea temperature is around 63 °F (17 °C), ranging from 58 °F (14 °C) in January to 68 °F (20 °C) in August. Los Angeles enjoys more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, with December averaging around 7 hours of sunshine per day and July averaging around 12 hours.

The economy of Los Angeles thrives on international trade, entertainment (including television, motion pictures, video games, and music production), aerospace, technology, petroleum, fashion, apparel, and tourism. Other significant industries include finance, telecommunications, law, healthcare, and transportation. In the Global Financial Centres Index of 2017, Los Angeles was ranked as the 19th most competitive financial center in the world and the sixth most competitive in the United States, following New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C.

Out of the five major film studios, only Paramount Pictures is located within the city limits of Los Angeles, situated within the so-called “Thirty-Mile Zone” of entertainment headquarters in Southern California.

Los Angeles takes pride in being the largest manufacturing center in the United States. The contiguous ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach together constitute the busiest port in the United States by certain measures and the fifth-busiest port globally, playing a vital role in trade within the Pacific Rim.

The Los Angeles metropolitan area’s gross metropolitan product surpassed $1.0 trillion in 2018, solidifying its position as the third-largest economic metropolitan area worldwide, trailing only Tokyo and New York. A 2012 study conducted by a group at Loughborough University classified Los Angeles as an “alpha world city.”
