More about Los Angeles

Designed to only stand for 18 months, the sign deteriorated over the course of more than half a century, until 1978, where a public campaign led by Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy Magazine, found donors to restore the sign and ensure it was a more permanent structure.

Anaheim was a sleepy suburban town until animator Walt Disney
built a theme park in the midst of it all. Disneyland boasts two different resorts, with a range of rides featuring much loved Disney characters and is a great place for all the family to visit.
