Los Angeles (commonly referred to as L.A.), California is the most populous city in the state and the second most populated city in the United States. The population of Los Angeles based on the 2010 census was 3,792,621 people. This city is made up of eighty districts and neighborhoods and covers five counties. The nickname for this city is "The City of Angels" because in Spanish, "Los Angeles" means "the Angels."

This city also is home to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is the third busiest airport in the United States and the sixth busiest commercial airport in the world.
This city was founded in 1781 by the Spanish and was part of Mexico until 1821. In 1848, this area was purchased by the United States as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

Hello @Kaan and @Andrea,


Thanks for taking the time to post on our site! I hope the Lakers bounce back for you too! (I'm sorry I don't follow basketball..?!)


@Andrea - The main difference between freeways and highways is that in the case of freeways, these roads are separated from the rest of the traffic and can only be accessed by ramps. These ramps (slip roads) allow for speed changes between the freeway. I hope this is helpful to you.


Feel free to ask us any other questions you have!


Cheers,

Eva
