When we think of Los Angeles, we may think of the glitz and glamor of Beverly Hills, the beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu, the kookiness that is Venice Beach, the heydays of Hollywood, and the skyscrapers of Downtown.
Those thinking of moving to Los Angeles, may become overwhelmed at the idea of choosing an area in which to live. I know I would be if I were new to the city.
It would be impossible to describe each of the unique areas of Los Angeles in one post, and I certainly do not know all of them well enough to try, after all we are talking about an area of 468.67 sq. miles with a population of 3,792,621, , the second largest in the U.S. But from an overall picture, I will say that Los Angeles is one of the more beautiful cities in the world. TV shows like Entourage do for L.A. what Sex and the City did for New York, and movies like Drive showcase the magnificent skyline of Downtown Los Angeles at night.
Los Angeles is a city of diversity which offers something for everyone. Below is a selection of areas you may want to investigate:
Santa Monica is an incorporated city of diversity, comprising the trendy, touristy, beach area to some of the most expensive homes in Los Angeles County. With less smog and traffic than the rest of Los Angeles, Santa Monica is a desirable place for those seeking an outdoor lifestyle. And with the diversity of areas comes a diversity of accommodation.
The image of Beverly Hills is one of luxury and glamor with its upscale shops, dining and some of the most expensive homes in the world. But there are certainly affordable places to live in this incorporated City. Check out your choices below:
Home to UCLA, and the Wilshire Corridor, also known as “The Golden Mile”. Westwood, like many other areas of Los Angeles, has its own diverse neighborhoods, from those multi-million dollar Wilshire Corridor condos and high-priced North of Wilshire homes, to the many more affordable homes, apartments and condominiums South of Wilshire.
Situated between Santa Monica and Westwood, Brentwood also offers more than one lifestyle, from the highly populated, trendy area on the East side around San Vicente where the majority of residences are condominiums and apartments, to the upscale residences as you move West. Brentwood has something for everyone.
Culver City is an incorporated city which is fast becoming one of the trendy new areas of Los Angeles. With its cafes, restaurants and art galleries, this is an area to watch, especially as it is still affordable.
