Los Angeles is a city known world-wide for movies, music, culture and its vibrant history. It is also known world-wide as a tourist destination, with iconic locations such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, the Getty Museum, Griffith Park, the Hollywood Sign, Venice Beach, Universal Studios, Disneyland, along with a plethora of other spots too numerous to mention. And, as of June 2016, Los Angeles has a new and “extreme” tourist attraction located in the heart of the city in the U.S. Bank Tower, the OUE Skyspace and OUE Skyslide. Since 1989, the U.S. Bank Tower has been one of the signature skyscrapers of the Los Angeles skyline, and at 1,018 feet in height, has been the tallest building in California – and West of the Mississippi since its completion. Movie buffs will also remember that the building was the main target of the aliens in Independence Day on the west coast.
