Is Los Angeles Really Laid Back?

Dec 10, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Los Angeles and California in general, have a reputation for being laid back.

Wearing shorts, walking around in flip flops all day, or just sitting by the beach on a warm afternoon, are all common place concepts of CA.

Just picture the California surfer, riding the waves a few hours a day, relaxing on a hammock, and taking a nap in the sun.

But, that isn’t necessarily true.

  • As of 2008, the California’s gross state product is about $1.85 trillion, which is 13% of the United States gross domestic product.
  • As of 2010, California along with Texas, leads all other states in the number of Fortune 500 headquarters at 57 companies each.
  • Los Angeles is the largest manufacturing center in the U.S., employing 433,200 workers in 2008. Source: Wikipedia
