24th Annual Anime Expo Kicks Off at L.A. Convention Center

Discover Los Angeles

People dressed in costumes that ranged from superheroes to internationally famous manga characters and the simply indescribable. The costumes added to the festive and somewhat chaotic atmosphere, which included dozens of food trucks parked both on the Convention Center grounds and across Downtown L.A.’s Figueroa Street. Lines at the opening of the show ran about 45 minutes to get into the Convention Center’s South and West Halls.

Inside the South Hall, the mood was convivial as attendees milled around merchandise booths, and outrageously-dressed people snapped photos of even more outrageously dressed people. Despite having attended about 300 anime shows, 23-year-old Devin Adkins was impressed by the sheer scale of his first AX. "It's definitely overwhelming, and I definitely plan to come back next year," said Adkins, who was dressed as Yato from Noragami. "I'm going to have to take tons of photos."

"You could fit all of the Texas cons (anime conferences) into this one," added 21-year-old Houston native Sophie "Tofu" H., who was dressed as the character Shampoo from Ranma 1/2. "There's lots of pretty stuff."

The Greatest Sports Moments in Los Angeles Coliseum History

Discover Los Angeles

The Coliseum hosted the 1932 Summer Olympic Games from July 30 to Aug. 14. Officially known as the Games of the X Olympiad, it was the first of two Olympiads hosted at the stadium. Along with the opening and closing ceremonies, the Coliseum was the site for field hockey, gymnastics, show jumping equestrian events, and track and field. Babe Didrikson won two track and field gold medals, in javelin and hurdles. Clarence “Buster” Crabbe (later the star of the Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers serials) won the gold in 400-meter freestyle swimming. An Olympic Village was built for the first time. It was located in Baldwin Hills and was occupied by the male athletes. Female athletes were housed at the Chapman Park Hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. Another innovation was the victory podium, which was used for the first time at the ‘32 Olympics. Interesting trivia: Tenth Street was renamed Olympic Boulevard in honor of the Olympics.

Top 10 Easy Hikes in Los Angeles

06/23/2015

Joshua Lurie

One of the best aspects of living in Los Angeles is the ready access to outdoor activities. The beach, mountains and desert are all within striking distance. Hiking is always an option, whether it’s the Santa Monica Mountains, Baldwin Hills, Hollywood Hills, down south in Ranchos Palos Verdes or up in the mighty San Gabriel Mountains. Learn about 10 of the best easy hikes in L.A. County that will get your heart rate up and yield some terrific views, but won’t lead to exhaustion.

A few quick reminders:
1. Carry your cell phone with you in case of emergency. The signal can be limited in the mountains, but the phone is your best friend if you run into trouble.
2. Carry plenty of water because trails often offer little shade and it can get hot.
3. Wear sunscreen. Even if the sky starts overcast, sun often breaks through clouds.
4. Stay to the center of the trail to limit contact with plants like poison ivy and wildlife like rattlesnakes and tarantulas.
