On September 4, 1781, 11 families - 44 people, including 26 blacks - walked out of Mission San Gabriel Arcangel to establish a community closer to the harbor. That village, El Pueblo de Nuestra Se#xF1;ora la Reina de los Angeles (The Town of Our Lady, the Queen of the Angel), was to become the City of Los Angeles. The Mission San Gabriel Arcangel is still here and you can visit it. The old and the new blend well in Los Angeles. It is the largest city in the state and the second-largest in the nation, and it is California's business and commercial center as well. But overall, the region is most famous perhaps for being the "heartland" of the nation's entertainment industry, a place where fact and fancy blend into one... and every reel has a happy ending. All of the surrounding communities are explored - Pacific Palisades, Redondo Beach, Venice, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Canoga Park, Malibu, Santa Monica, Pasadena, Pomona, San Marino, and more.
