Telling which neighborhood is best depends on your personal experience, and it’s your taste that determines the answer. However, yours faithfully, Brand LA, has bits of information about some neighborhoods in L.A. to share with you.

Now, The People!
Los Angeles County is often regarded as “the cultural hub of the pacific rim,” because of our multiethnic population. You get to experience a blend of rich cultures without leaving the shores of the United States. Los Angeles County is home to people from at least 140 countries speaking different languages. Here is a breakdown based on the U.S. Census Bureau on American Community Survey in 2018. L.A. had a population of 48.6% Latinos or Hispanics, 26.1% white (non-Hispanic), 15.4 Asian, 9.0 African-Americans, 1.4 American Indians, and others. We’ll publish 2020 data, when everyone’s counted this year.
Los Angeles County is diverse in terms of its population and the experience. When you can, why not make out time to explore L.A., and let Brand LA in on what you think?
