Many people mistake L.A. to be the home of the famous Disneyland amusement park. But the truth is, it’s simply not! Disneyland is and always has been in Anaheim, Orange County; which is in the same state as Los Angeles.
It’s about half an hour drive from the city but is definitely, we repeat, NOT in L.A. And please, if you don’t feel like pissing off the locals, don’t make that tragic mix-up in front of them. They will roll their eyes so hard you’ll have to call an exorcist.
Whose Humps Are You Looking At?
Before you start attacking us for objectifying people, we're just talking about Los Angeles speed bumps. We honestly can't figure out why – and neither can people who actually live there – but for some reason, in L.A. those little things in the middle of the road are called "speed humps."
Maybe it's the local snowflake mentality. They just had to be different from everyone else, didn't they?
If you're a summer type, you've come to the right place. In L.A. it's summer pretty much all year long. When people are freezing their bums off in other parts of the globe, Angelenos get to waive any and all use of boots and sweaters and bask in the warm sunlight on a regular basis.
How else will they maintain their tan for a new batch of Instagram photos nobody cares about?
Shh, It's (not so much of) a Secret!
One of the best semi-kept local secrets is that the iconic L.A. food chain In-N-Out doesn't only have what you see in its regular menu. The burger place actually has a secret menu! Well, a 'not-so-secret' menu, to be exact.
But who cares? It sounds good, and it has the 3X3, 4X4, and Animal Style burgers on it. The locals, though, might only get these when they are having a cheat day from their custom-built goji-berry-based diet.
Angelenos Have Their Own Standard of 'Cold'
If you don't want to risk looking like a tourist, make sure to dress properly whenever the temperature drops below 60°. Water might freeze at 32°, but L.A. people really don't need temperatures to get that low to do the same and run for the nearest pumpkin-spice latte.
So, to disguise yourself as a local, please make sure to pull out your coat and scarf at the sight of any hint of chill, as tiny as it may be. Trust us.
