San Fernando Valley - San Gabriel Valley - Los Angeles Hotels .com
Remember the '80s? Remember valley girls? Well, it all started here, in
San Fernando Valley. LA hipsters still like to disrespect the area west
of Griffith Park
. They shouldn't.
This is where many Movie and TV Studios
, such as
Universal Studios and Disney, are located.
As a visitor, you'll want to check out attractions such as the
studios, most of which offer tours, or the restored 1797 Mission San
Fernando Rey de Espana, or even the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library
The other valley, San Gabriel, is east of Los Angeles. A
farming area not so long ago, it's now solid with suburbs, including
towns such as Pasadena, Covina, and Arcadia. Hispanic families have
lived here since the nineteenth century, and Asian immigrants since
early in the twentieth -- but in the last decade of the twentieth
century, this valley's suburbs became predominantly Latino and Asian.
Visitors will find lots to attract them, including the Mission
San Gabriel Arcangel, the Santa Anita Park thoroughbred racetrack,
Caltech (the California Institute of Technology), and the Tournament of Roses every year in
