Los Angeles County is a melting pot of various cultures. Here you can find anything from Koreatown, Chinatown, Little Ethiopia, Little Armenia and etc. Having so many rich and robust cultures in one county allows you to experience and appreciate the diversity and differences that make us all unique. Aside from the culture, there are so many beautiful beaches and parks to explore as well. Some of my favorite places to hangout in Los Angeles County: Long Beach, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Redondo Beach and Downtown Los Angeles (Arts District). I would highly recommend a visit to Los Angeles County if you enjoy art, culture, food, beaches, hiking and drinks!
The public schools give a great education just like the private ones do. Just as other cities be aware of your surroundings, the people around you, and you'll be fine. People come here with their families to give them a better life, a better education, and better opportunities. There are so many different cultures around here, and all of them are embraced for the most part. The nightlife is exciting, and it doesn't matter how old u are. You will always find a good time. Los Angeles is very much known for the many people who chose the lifestyle of being a vegan/vegetarian. Real estate is an ongoing business here. People are always buying, selling, renting, and building. Commute time can be a bit exhausting at times. The 405 aka the "slow oh five" is definitely something we all have to deal with, but it's too much of an inconvenience. As far as affordability goes Los Angeles is not a city to come to if you're not 1000% financially stable. The jobs are there so go out and get them!
