Los Angeles,the famous landscape showcased in the film remains more or less the same,over the past decade the city itself has changed hugely,with east-side neighbourhoods such as Echo Park and Silver Lake going from places to avoid to places to be seen.We talk about the reasons why people love to visit Los Angeles,and Los Angeles day trips.
