What locals are saying

It all started out with a dream. You were hardcore. You were going to move to California, become the star of a rockin' metal band and live large in the limelight. Fame & fortune were going to be yours. And then something happened. You turned eighteen! You went to college. You graduated, got this bizarre thing called a career, maybe even a girlfriend, maybe even a wife! Maybe now you have kids, or would like them in the near future and yet, there's still that eighteen year old buried somewhere deep inside, who’s California dreamin'. Well hang on to your spandex because there's still a place for you. It might not be the bright lights, big city of LA but it's right next door!
