Los Angeles, the city that was once very strange and distant to me, has become my second home since college. After spending 4 years in the city, I’ve discovered and learned a lot things about Los Angeles. Yet there are still so many things that I don’t know about L.A. Below are 11 interesting facts about Los Angeles, some of which surprised me:
- A. used to have a very long original name.
Los Angeles was founded by 44 settlers known as “Los Pobladores” on September 4, 1781. Its original name was “El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula,” which translated to “The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels of the Porciúncula River” in English. As the population gradually grew, the city’s name was shorten to “Los Angeles,” or simply L.A. like we know it today.
- A. has 7 interesting nicknames.
Los Angeles gains the nicknames: (1) City of Angels, (2) Angeltown, (3) Lalaland, (4) Tinseltown, (5) The Big Orange, (6) City of Flowers and Sunshine, and of course (7) L.A.
- The Hollywood sign originally said “Hollywood Land.”
When it was first created in 1923, the famous Hollywood sign originally said “Hollywood Land” instead. The sign was used to advertise for a real estate development. Over the time, the sign has sustained plenty of damage and deterioration, as well as restoration attempts. Today, the Hollywood sign is protected by the Hollywood Sign Trust – a non-profit organization.
- Hollywood became the capital of the film industry thanks to Thomas Edison.
Ever wonder why Hollywood is a major city for the entertainment industry and celebrities? It’s all thanks to Thomas Edison! In the early 1900s, Thomas Edison and his Motion Picture Patents Company held the majority of the country’s film-making patents in New Jersey. Thus, filmmakers began moving out to the west to escape Edison’s patents. This reason, along with the favorable warm and sunny weather (who can complain about L.A’s weather after all?) quickly made L.A, particularly Hollywood, the capital of the film industry.
- A. is home to people from more than 140 countries speaking over 200 different languages.
L.A. is so diverse that it’s home to people from more than 140 countries speaking over 200 different languages! If you want to learn more about the different cultures that L.A. embraces (which you totally should), visit ethnic neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Little Ethiopia, Historic Filipinotown, Thai Town, and Little Armenia etc.
- LAX is ranked the 6th busiest airport in the world.
Los Angeles International Airport, also known as LAX, is ranked as the 6th busiest airport in the world in 2013 by the Airports Council International, with over 63 million passengers.
- A. is often referred to as the “Creative Capital of the World.”
L.A. has at least 90 theaters with over 1,000 theatrical productions annually and more than 300 museums. No wonder why it’s often referred to as the “Creative Capital of the World.” Not to mention that USC School of Cinematic Arts is the oldest and largest film school in the United States! #Fighton
- There are around 200,000 small businesses operating in L.A.
L.A. is also regarded as an entrepreneurial city, with approximately 200,000 small businesses operating, more than that of any other city in the U.S.
- It’s illegal to lick a toad in L.A.
It’s illegal to lick a toad in L.A, particularly the Colorado River Toad. Yup you read that right! Apparently this species of toad secretes a venom that can cause hallucinogenic effects. In other words: it’ll make you high! However, the venom is also deadly and can greatly damage your health.
- A. and San Francisco are moving 2.5 inches closer every year.
Because L.A. and San Francisco are on opposite sides of the San Andreas Fault, these 2 cities are moving 2.5 inches closer every year! So in around 10 million years, L.A. and S.F. will be right next to each other! No need for that 8 hours’ drive every time!
- The California Science Center is now home of the Space Shuttle Endeavour.
You can now see the Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center! It’s located in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion, along with exhibits and videos that feature Endeavour’s story. I went there for the first time with my friends last summer and trust me, its worth going!
