California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.

Lawndale is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The population was 31,711 inhabitants at the 2000 census. From the 1780s onward, the area that is now Lawndale was part of the El Rancho Sausal Redondo, a land grant given by the Spanish colonial government that includes much of what is now the South Bay region. In 1905 E.L Hopper first subdivided the area and named it after a Chicago suburb.

Roy Rogers once lived here for a short time, as did Bettie Page. Fred Dryer grew up in Lawndale. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.1 square kilometers and it is all land.

Lawndale is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in California worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of California.
