I love Venice. Cool vibes, surf, stretches of gorgeous beach, bars & shops. The boardwalk is sure to amaze you, performers & weirdness that makes it so fantastic!

City of Pasadena is big, with over 130,000 population. My review will be based on zipcode 91106 only. Which is the area that covers two college campus (PCC and Cal Tech) Thumbs UP: + Parking is nightmare for the resident who live the two campus, students would likely park in their street spot. They need to enforce two hours parking ...

I know Long Beach's Beach (near 2nd street) is not as famous as Newport or Laguna, but that's the reason I like coming here!!! If you want a beach that you can go to to relax, sleep, read or simply enjoy a beautiful day without screaming kids or people around you; this place is for you!!! I came here because ...

Known as WeHo, this area of LA is really funny. For shopping addicted Robertson and Melrose boutiques are a nice starting point. There are also stylish restautants and hotels. I enjoyed also driving through Sunset Blv, what beautiful houses and gardens all there around.

If not for the parking, I'd say five stars. There are some great neighborhoods here with a ton of food options. Eat to you heart's content and then go enjoy the sunset over the ocean. I love the Sawtelle region and random gems like A Frame. Just be prepared for tons of traffic as you meander through the streets and ...

When people think of Catalina Island, they usually think of the tiny town of Avalon. Just an hour’s boat ride (twenty-something miles) from the LA and OC coasts of California, this little city is the southernmost city in LA county. Envisioned by the Wrigley family (like the gum) to be a resort destination, it has managed to continue to attract ...

Glendale remind me a lot like Pasadena, but smaller and little nicer. It doesn't had the huge sport stadium like the rose bowl or popular school like PCC or Cal Tech. But Glendale is kinda seat in between between east and west urban community in L.A. Downtown is more like a working area and not something you want to bring ...

A great suburban getaway that's just a short daytrip from central L.A. Numerous outdoor cafes, amazing views, some nice hiking and you can reach it by the Yellow Line if you don't feel like driving. I nice, slow place to occasionally escape to, Sierra Madre has the rare distinction of receiving an "All-American City Award," a perfect fit for it's ...

Hermosa Beach is in its own world - people leave their doors unlocked, barbecues on rooftops overlooking the ocean are standard weekday events, and the community is small enough that everyone seems to know everyone. Bikes are the main form of transportation (good luck finding a parking spot for your car), so renting one for the day is definitely a ...

Cool modern architecture, beautiful weather and homes. There are lots of options in terms of activities from dining to gyms but they tend to be chains which is why I give the area 4 stars

Born in Santa Monica in 1954 and lived here until I was 20 years old and could not imagine a better place to grow up. Very small, friendly town where all the store people knew you by name and no one ever was a stranger. Don't know if it still has that quality now, but was the best place for ...
