Los Angeles, CA
Los Angeles is the City of Angels, is much more than a city of celebrities and tourist attractions. It is an urban landscape that offers just about any kind of event tickets imaginable. The only major sports franchise is an NFL team, but that could be coming soon. Thankfully, the Lakers and Clippers are making excellent use of the Staples Center, along with the NHL Kings. The Dodgers are threatening to bring a World Series championship home to Dodger Stadium.
In addition to a thriving sports scene, Los Angeles also has a theater scene too. This is not just a place where movies are made, but a city that appreciates the live stage. Broadway shows on tour and pre-Broadway tryouts do quite well to remind the citizenry how to finish a scene in one take.
Musically, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Chamber Music Society are rejuvenating the classical scene at Walt Disney Concert Hall and a few more venues. Big pop, country, and rock bands come through to share the Staples Center and play beloved music venues like Club Nokia and El Rey Theatre.
