Where to Live
Greater Los Angeles is home to nearly 18 million people and more than 80 distinct neighbourhoods, making car access a necessity in much of this sprawling city. Still, in Downtown LA, you can make use of public transportation or get around on foot. Iconic areas include Hollywood and Beverly Hills, but young people are gravitating towards Silver Lake and Echo Park, for restaurants, bars and clubs. Santa Monica is famous for dining and shopping along the pier, while Venice is home to the weird and wonderful. Also consider low-key Del Rey or the beach scene in Redondo Beach. To find an LA apartment, try LosAngeles.sublet.com, LosAngeles.craigslist.org or WestSideRentals.com.
The city's perfect weather is one its main selling points, with year-round sunshine and only occasional smog and pollution spoiling the view. Ditch your raincoats for high factor sun cream and enjoy the city's miles of sandy shores throughout much of the year.
