In 1781, the city of Los Angeles was founded. The first 44 people to settle there chose the name "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula" which means “The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels on of the River Porciúncula.”
Now the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles is home to the tourist attraction "The Walk of Fame," which has 2,482 stars and counting.
Did you also know that LA is moving to where San Francisco is now? It's in no hurry, as it's slipping on the San Andreas Fault at the rate of .25 inches per year.
