Combine the Pacific Ocean, perfect weather, the creative energy of Hollywood and the diversity of a metropolitan area of more than 15 million people and you have the magical elixir that is Los Angeles.

The same magnificent climate, scenery and talented population that attracted the movie industry has also attracted the world's most important sporting events including two Olympic Games in 1932 and 1984, five Super Bowls, the men's (1994) and women's (1999) FIFA World Cup championships and some of the most storied sports franchises anywhere, including the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Southern California offers the complete package for sports organizers as well as the sports fan, with hundreds of facilities from giant football stadia like the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the Rose Bowl to state-of-the-art arenas like Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim and Staples Center to intimate facilities like the Bren Center at UC Irvine or the Lyon Center at USC. The variety and quality of facilities in the area is so outstanding that the area's bid for the 2012 Olympic Games noted that construction was needed only for a permanent canoeing and rowing channel and a shooting range to meet all Olympic requirements.

In addition, a vast array of quality accommodations are available in major clusters including downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, the Los Angeles International Airport area, the L.A. westside, Anaheim and Long Beach. More than 100,000 hotel rooms are available in Los Angeles County alone and more than 150,000 in the greater Los Angeles area, all connected by the area's famous freeway system and an emerging rapid transit system using both buses and rail.

Of course, there's plenty to do once you get here, including the area's legendary beaches and attractions, including Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood, the Queen Mary, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Getty Center and many, many more.

It's all here!
