    "East Of" or "East To"??

    Hi, teachers:

    I wonder should I say "east of" or "east to" when describing direction?

    Example: Should I say:
    Los Angelas is east of Las Vegas
    or
    Los Angelas is east to Las Vegas
    Thanks in advance to all^_^

    Los Angeles is east of Las Vegas.
    That's grammatically correct.

    To be geographically correct, you can say:
    Los Angeles is west of Las Vegas. or
    Los Angeles is [to the] south-west of Las Vegas.
