Los Angeles: Where Everyone is Welcome
Discover Los Angeles
When we were kids, a white piece of paper was enough to make an airplane that travelled to foreign lands. A simple cardboard box transformed into a magical rocket ship gracing undiscovered galaxies all over the universe. All we needed was our imagination to discover different worlds with new people, languages, and traditions. We created these images in attempt to reach beyond what was right in front of us, based in a willingness to embrace the unknown.
Los Angeles is asking that their city be the next stop on your paper plane itinerary. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you do, #EveryoneIsWelcome to Los Angeles, a place where the imagination can thrive and people from across the universe have come to share their stories. The Discover Los Angeles initiative invites you to be part of their community, even if just for a week.
Experience the people and partake in the laughter as you explore what this incredible population has to offer. A little time spent in Los Angeles will make you feel like you’ve already rounded the globe. Spiced dishes, lively music, and infinite creativity await.
