Venice Posted On: 5/25/2012 2:43:33 AM
I've lived in Venice longer than I've lived anywhere (I'm originally from San Diego). I love it. Venice is a little piece of paradise on earth. Yes, there are problems with homeless, with parking, with very high housing costs, but it is a wonderful, walkable community, with great funky restaurants and wine bars, the boardwalk, the ocean, an eclectic mix of architecture and a creative population.
Would love some feedback Posted On: 5/25/2012 2:40:19 AM
I'm a working novelist, single female, on the young side of middle-age, selling my place in Venice CA and trying to decide where to relocate. I'm a diehard Californian, so I want to stay in the state. I've always lived close to the ocean and would like to continue to do so. Would anyone care to offer some feedback on Arcata and Humboldt in general for writer types? I'm looking for a walkable community, decent restaurants and coffee houses and public spaces. I don't need constant entertainment but definitely want some intellectual/cultural stimulation.
Obviously I'll be making a visit before any kind of decision, but am curious to hear insider perspectives.
