I have lived in Los Angeles for about five years. Here, you can find various people in different races. Here are bunch of things you can enjoy in Los Angeles like shopping malls and delicious restaurants. However, population has been increased a lot. Most of time, there are traffic at everywhere. You should be careful when you drive here at Los Angeles. Even though I tried to drive safely, I almost got into the accidents several times. Except for the traffic, everything has been perfect!

Great place to live with good opportunity for employment and large personal growth! Traffic is legendary, and shopping can be like a religious experience in ritzy areas or numerous malls. It's the other aspects that can make it worthwhile to negotiate this unique metropolis. Great museums, DTLA's resurgence driven by Staples Center initially, sports of all types, dining to please all wallets, scenic vistas, cultural events, and so much m
I loved all of the things to do on any given night, no matter what night it was. Love the diversity of the city; so many different people and various cultural experiences.
Love the food, the nightlife, and the weather is beautiful (usually!).
The only complaint I have is that the commute is terrible unless you live right downtown.. and I feel badly for the homeless population that just seems to grow daily.
The food is incredible; I can eat out somewhere different every day for months and not eat at the same place twice.
And finally, I absolutely ADORE the art scene in LA! From the Broad Museum to The Getty and Huntington Gardens.. there never seems to be a shortage of beautiful art to see.
