Welcome to Compton, California

Hip hop group N.W.A put Compton on the map with their groundbreaking 1988 album "Straight Outta Compton." However, much has changed in the three decades since the album was released. The city has a population of around 96,450. It also has a relatively young population, with an average age of 25 years. Compton is nicknamed the "Hub City" because of its central location in Los Angeles County. It has freeways on every side and two light-rail stops, which makes it easy to travel to other parts of the county from Compton.

Special Points of Interest in Compton, California

From satisfying homestyle food to unique attractions, Compton has something for everyone to enjoy. One of the most interesting attractions in the area is Watts Towers. These 17 interconnected sculptural towers were designed and built solely by artist Sabato "Simon" Rodia. Rodia was a tile mason and construction worker who emigrated from Italy. In 1921, he started working on the towers when he had free time. Over the next 34 years, he constructed tall towers, a gazebo, mosaic tile walls, and more. Today, you can tour Watts Towers to learn more about Rodia's ingenuity and vision.

If you've worked up an appetite, you'll find a variety of restaurants serving up dishes you'll only find in Compton. One popular restaurant worth visiting is Loreto's Fried Turkey. If your favorite part of Thanksgiving is the turkey, you'll love the menu at Loreto's. Here, you'll find juicy and tender turkey served nearly 20 different ways. You can get turkey sandwiches, turkey tacos, turkey soups, turkey salads, and turkey "soul," which is turkey smothered in homemade turkey gravy. Of course, you can also order a whole 15-pound turkey that's deep-fried and seasoned with a mix of Cajun spices.

Compton's La Doña Tamalería is a no-frills Mexican restaurant that serves up some of the best tamales in the area. In fact, the restaurant's tamales are so popular that it sells thousands every day. When you walk inside, you'll see massive stacks of cornhusk-wrapped packages ready to go. Some of the most popular fillings at the restaurant include classics like pork, chicken, and sweet corn. However, you can occasionally find special treats, such as pineapple and strawberry tamales.
