As if we needed more of a reason to love Los Angeles, it was recently ranked #9 in Resonance Consultancy’s Top 10 2020 World’s Best Cities report, making the city one of the places to be in 2020 and beyond! A hotspot for entertainment, innovation and tourism, LA is a home to over 13.2M residents and brings together over 50 million visitors annually!

Ranking the world’s metropolis cities using a combination of statistical performance and qualitative evaluations in six core categories, this report provides further insight into the ‘The Creative Capital of the World’, which entered the Top 10 for the first time!

Within the ranking subcategories, Los Angeles was voted #4 for Product which encompasses a city’s key institutions, attractions and infrastructure, and was voted #7 in Promotion, highlighting the city’s ability to tell its story through media coverage, social buzz (hashtags, social check-ins), online articles, Google searches and more.

Breaking tourism records yearly and anticipating increased attention with the 2028 Olympic Summer Games, Los Angeles development is at an all time high. Look out for a direct transit line to LAX opening in 2021 and of course, a new place to call home in DTLA at Hope + Flower.

Contributing to L.A.’s coveted fourth place ‘Product’ ranking, is the impressive World University Rankings awarded to the California Institute of Technology at #2 and UCLA at #17, both of which boast impressive programs and notable alumni.

Los Angeles’ world-renowned museums (The Getty Center, The Broad, Los Angeles Country Museum of Art) housing incredible collections also affected their ranking, along with the city’s variety of intricate neighborhoods, must-see scenic trails, Hollywood history, and unique attractions including Universal Studios Hollywood, Disneyland Park, Griffith Observatory, Santa Monica Pier and more.
