    Los Angeles Reviews

    Los Angeles is a culturally rich city with so much to offer. If you don't like the beach, then there are countless hiking trails and parks to explore. I personally enjoy roaming through the art museums, particularly the LACMA, which usually have beautiful outdoor areas and cafes offering delicious food. And speaking of food, you could probably eat out every day and never eat at the same place twice! There are so many different cuisines and food options available whether you're a meat-eater, vegetarian, vegan, etc. It's a great place to live, visit, and explore!
    I love living in Los Angeles. Its diverse and exciting. My neighborhood of Miracle Mile is very walkable. There are museums and nearby grocery stores and restaurants. I like that there is so much to see in Los Angeles. I never get bored! I really like the people here too. They are down-to-earth and kind. Even though there is traffic, I like to drive. And if you don't like to drive, Los Angeles is expanding its public transportation through the metro line. I look forward to starting a family and raising my kids here in my favorite town!
    To be perfectly honest, living in Los Angeles was a little difficult at first, mainly because it is such a large place. However, it is rich in culture, art, history, night life, and scenery! Once you learn how to navigate Los Angeles, it becomes an amazing place to live. Personally, I love the various neighborhoods throughout LA--each has its own food, culture, and norms that make it unique. If you're looking for a great place to live, learn, and love, LA is the place to be!
