Hollywood is a must for everyone to do once while they are in the LA area, but be warned: it's dirty, there are weird people and lots of bums. Sadly, the Hollywood area is poorly taken care and is very touristy. As someone who was born and raised in southern CA, it never struck me as something amazing, but I ...

    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 ...

    Hermosa Beach

    California, USA
    21 reviews

    One of my favorite things to do in a new large city is find a neighborhood outside of the main touristy areas and spend the day. Hermosa Beach is the perfect version of this for Los Angeles. Sure, Malibu's beaches are more attractive, but Hermosa's beach is lined by The Strand bike path (act out your LA self by renting ...

    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 ...

    This is a small city in between Arcadia and El Monte, and San Gabriel. It is consider the safest of them three, due to smaller population with almost no gang association. The house price here is in the high side but is less than Arcadia. There's a lot to do in this city is really more idea for raising the ...

    This is basically the 626 of Beverly Hill, fancy and very pricey home. Unlike Bevery, this place is not really tourist spot at all, there's lack of shop and restaurant here. It is mostly a true definition of resident area, just home. This is probably the safest city in L.A.
