Compton is one of L.A. County's oldest cities but it didn't get widespread recognition until the 1980s. Today Compton has prospered significantly and progressed from the struggles of past decades and is known as an "entrepreneurial hotspot." Central to L.A. County and a very short distance from many L.A. landmarks, the Compton sign is a perfect Instagrammable moment to mark your journey through the Southland.
