You mentioned that the freeway/interchange views of Los Angeles are
one of your favorite aspects of the city–care to name a few? My
personal favorite is the 10-E to 110-N carpool interchange.
That's probably my favorite too. What else? The views from the 405, heading north from the airport, and from parts of the 10, are superb. The number of palm trees visible is a good working metric for the quality of the freeway view. Here you can read about the East Los Angeles Freeway Interchange, once considered an engineering marvel, but it is not a favorite of mine. Here are photos of that interchange. Here is the 405-105 interchange. I hold the unusual view that Los Angeles is probably America's most beautiful city.
