What locals are saying

Moving to Los Angeles is the continuation of the American dream, of traveling west towards the setting sun and carving out a life on the edge of the world. Believe it or not, though, you can do it. Renting an apartment in LA is actually easier and less expensive than in cities of comparable size like San Francisco and New York. Legions of dreamers, wanderers, pioneers, artists and those in search for a better life have picked up and moved to the belly of the beast, and so can you.

The challenge is that Los Angeles has over 100 definable neighborhoods, and deciding which one of them to live in can be intimidating
