I love LA - 2/28/2020
My favorite city in the U.S. Fantastic cultural amenities. Fantastic food from around the world. Great shopping. Lots of interesting architecture and history. The best weather in the world. Endless Pacific Ocean at your feet. Great music city. Year around beautiful flowers and gardens. Multi-cultural. The absolute best city for year around outdoor activities. Fantastic hiking areas. I honestly can not imagine living anywhere else. Read More

Not a place to live - 1/13/2020
LA has the worst of all worlds. Few bright spots- very few. Every good human being moved out or will move out soon. No one should think of moving here to live for Read More

Los Angeles is a pit. - 12/12/2019
Los Angeles is a pit. The cost of living is insane. If you live here you are either poor or rich.  Read More

Not a place to raise a family - 11/26/2019
Not a place to raise a family. Drugs, theft, violence, etc. The police here are not like depicted on TV and movies, though. My experience with the LAPD has ALWAYS been positive. The officers I've had to deal with here were always professional, courteous, honest and empathetic. Read More

City for young people? Maybe with daddies money - 8/23/2019
LA is a place where you go after you’ve established some sort of solid foundation whether it be obtaining a useful degree or moving jobs. As someone who moved there at 20, I found it very difficult to make a lot of money( I work in marketing not “acting” or modeling). People move to LA with the hopes of being discovered yet fail to realize that most celebrities that live there were discovered elsewhere and settled in LA. Rent is absurd, groceries are expensive, and the gas is through the roof.. especially having to constantly fill up from the stop and go of the 405/101.

It is BEAUTIFUL if you can find the right spots that are not filled with tourists. The forest, Malibu, Santa Monica mountains... it truly is s gorgeous place to live if you can afford it and avoid 85% of the people that now live there. Read More

Great for young adults, terrible for families - 7/15/2019
LA is a great city for young people, but definitely not a great place to raise a family. In my area (Larchmont Village), a 2-bedroom apartment without basic appliances like a washer and dryer and a dishwasher, will cost you around $3,000 per month. You gotta do fluff n fold or head to the laundromat. Buying a house is out of the question. Even the ugliest, most run-down houses get purchased for over a million dollars. If I had a million dollars in my pocket I still wouldn't buy one.

Traffic here is a nightmare and the Metro transit system is somewhat helpful, but it smells like pee and there are countless homeless people in the subway stations. The homelessness around the entire city is really bad, but definitely worse in some areas compared to others. Lots of tents on the streets. The entire city is covered in graffiti and our gutters are littered with piles of trash. Definitely a filthy place to live (because of the number of people we have crammed into this city). Read More

A Little Good Mixed in with a Whole Lotta Terrible - 3/27/2019
Okay, so I'm going to start out by saying there was a time when I absolutely loved LA. That's not the case anymore. I'd also like to preface my list of pros and cons by noting that I'm 23, a female, and from a larger town in the Midwest just in case this information is relevant to anybody.

Pros (this list is shorter):
LA is full of culture, amazing restaurants, cool nightlife, and of course beaches. For girls, it's very easy to get into clubs with promoters where you can drink for free all night, but even if you go to a more laid-back bar, you have to actively try to not get free drinks from guys. For a while, I really loved it here. I had been out here many times before making the official move, and it felt like a dream, even though there were tons of negatives I had to look past daily. The climate is usually great, there is great food here, and you can find something fun to do literally any time, day or night. There are also a lot of beautiful places here that Read More

Not for everyone - 11/4/2018
This review is about SoCal in general. This is not a dream place! I grew up in the bay area in the 80s. The bay area changed too much so I moved to SoCal. At first it is ok but there are a lot of negatives. First, there is no climate. It is basically sunny 265 days and the more inland you get the hotter it is. Winter for the most part is wimpy. The weather cycle is unpredictable because you will have a recurring cold winter once every 4 years other times it'll be 85 degrees on Christmas day. A lot of the inland cities around LA are much like Sacramento as far as heat. Places like riverside and inland empire are basically hell. This whole LA basin is the beginning of the desert. Once you travel about 30 miles away from the coast it is the beginning of what they call the low desert, then the high desert.. this type of climate eventually dumps into the desert of Vegas and Arizona. The people are friendlier in the beginning, more than the bay area but don't let that fool you.  Read More
