Geocache Description:

Los Angeles is Everywhere. Los Angeles is a city that just can't help but get noticed. I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area, and have since moved on to other places. But for some reason, you just can't escape LA. There are references everywhere: in names of businesses, highways, mountains and hills.. even districts and neighborhoods.

NOTE: PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LONG DESCRIPTION before logging this cache!


It may also be a good idea to check this webpage for hints and examples before you attempt to log this virtual cache.

To claim credit for this cache, you must:

  • locate a place that bears the same name as a place in Los Angeles
  • photograph it with yourself and the GPSr in the picture
  • post GPS coordinates for the location and include the city where you found it in the description
  • explain the tie to Los Angeles. The more detail, usually the better.
It must be unique, although it is acceptable to two people to log a different location in the same city that bears the same name (example: a chain restaurant with multiple locations, a neighborhood that may have multiple signs, etc). Lastly, the location must be more than 120 miles from these coordinates: 34° 03.133' N, 118° 14.622' W (which is to say, it needs to be more than 120 miles from downtown Los Angeles).

Note that the location dosen't necessarily have to be named AFTER it's Los Angeles counterpart, it just needs to bear the same name. It dosen't even need to be the same type of location, just the name must match.

For purposes of this virtual cache, "Los Angeles" refers to locations within the city limits of Los Angeles proper. Finding another "Watts" would count, finding another "Santa Monica" or "Avalon" would not.

If you have any questions about whether or not your "find" is appropriate or not, feel free to log it anyway. You can find more information about this cache, including rule clarifications, at the website link above.
