What drives me crazy is the stereotype people who promote cities via travel books or destination guides seem all to willing to give Los Angeles. Take for instance this description from WCities:
La-La Land…every nickname for LA describes a place where fantasy becomes reality. Schmooze with celebrities, shop Rodeo Drive or simply catch the sun at the beach. There’s never a shortage of places to go or wishes to be granted in the City of Angels.
Fortunately for those of us who live and know Los Angeles, there is more to this city than celebrities, shopping, and the beach. True, LA can be magical but it makes me glad that we have sites like Blogging.la where real LA people write about what LA is really about which is so much more than gossip, celebrities, and plastic surgery.
