The Quartier Ouest association is proud to introduce its « Frenchies Love L.A » project, which aims to propose an associative trip from Paris to Los Angeles.
- ABOUT US
The Quartier Ouest association was formerly known as the B Ball State association.
Located in the French city of Herouville Saint-Clair, it’s an 11 years old structure which is renowned in France, for organizing sports events linked to Basketball. Among these events are youth camps, humanitarian fundraisings, and also tournaments such as the Quartier Ouest one, which is the most famous of them. Such event gathers players of any gender, professional or amateurs, coming from France, Europe, and also overseas. One of its main guests is the International french player Nicolas Batum, who has signed a recent contract with the Charlotte Hornets NBA Franchise.
In order to extend its possibilities, the B Ball State association has changed its name, to become the Quartier Ouest association, and to allow groups of people to travel abroad, or to participate in other activities.
This association has built its own trip schedule, without the help of other companies, and propose it to anyone who has paid for a registration. Anyone can join these trips, since the only requirement needed is to become a member of the Quartier Ouest association.
- LOS ANGELES
For those who have none or little idea of what is this famous city, it can be described as a location where the sea and the desert mix together with urbanism. But what’s more important is that Los Angeles can be considered as the home for some of the biggest brands from sport, cinema, music, and many more.
Among the greatest names close to this metropolis, there are Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Malibu, and even more.
With 18 millions of inhabitants, ethnicity is one of its greatest strengths. From Chinatown to Creenshaw, or also El Pueblo, it’s like an entire world that the city gathered here.
And if there’s a need to look elsewhere, many other towns can be reached from here, such as Las Vegas, San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, and many more.
Of all the biggest metropolis in the world, Los Angeles remains the most fascinating and attractive city among them.
You will have the opportunity to discover places that should not be missed, with a comfortable pace to avoid exhaustion, making this trip the perfect choice for groups and families.
- OUR STARTING FIVE
Here are the 5 major points that will guide every person interested during this trip, allowing it to be a pleasant experience.
If you don’t like french winters, you should know that here, at Los Angeles, the sun awaits your coming, even in this scheduled season. If you don’t want to let the weather change your mood, then coming is here the perfect choice.
If you like the 90’s years, then the Baywatch tv show should remind you something, right? Well, you should know that the famous beach of Malibu, that was the main asset of this show, can be found nowhere else than here, at Los Angeles. And if you want more, there are also other famous ones, such as Santa Monica, or even Venice Beach.
There is one point always associated with Los Angeles, and it’s Hollywood. With so many brands linked to the movie industry, and groups of famous actors and actresses, it’s now or never to get closer to such world and understand it. If you love cinema, then welcome to Los Angeles!
Nothing’s more pleasant here than succumbing to shopping temptation. If you come to the Outlets, Sunset Boulevard or also Rodeo Drive, even if you don’t spend money, wandering here is sufficient for anyone who is curious.
Since it’s the focal point of our trip, we also have to remind you how important is basketball here. Los Angeles is the home of college campus such as UCLA and USC, from which famous basketball players have spent time before joining the NBA, like DeMar DeRozan, Kevin Love, Reggie Miller, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, or Russell Westbrook.
But more important, it’s here and nowhere else that you will have the opportunity to attend some games at the Staples Center, home of 2 NBA franchises, which are the Clippers and the Lakers.
There are also numerous playgrounds, where lots of basketball players came before reaching the highest level of competition. Anyone who loves Basketball will be pleased to come here!
- THE SCHEDULE
