Los Angeles is the largest city in California, set on the southern coast of California, 75 miles north Mexico and 400 miles south of San Francisco. The Pacific coast bounds it on the west and the San Gabriel and San Bernardino Mountains form the border to the east.

Along the Pacific shore, Malibu and Santa Monica are the best‐known high‐class beach resorts, while Venice Beach is better known for the bikini roller blade set.
