Whether it’s starting afresh or pursuing bigger goals, there is a time we are faced with the decision to either stay where we are or move to a different city or country. This decision is influenced by a lot of factors, and today, you are going to see how fascinating these factors are, especially when the city on your mind is Los Angeles.
Did you know that LA is the number one destination in the world for people who love to ski and surf on the same day? I bet you didn’t! The almost-perfect weather is probably the main reason why some people move to Los Angeles. If you have a strong dislike for blizzards, typhoons, hurricanes, torrential rainfall, hail, or sub-zero weather, then Los Angeles is just what you need. LA does get hot at times but for the most part, you don’t have to deal with extreme weather conditions, unlike some other places.
*FACT: The city’s original name was El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles (The Town of the Queen of Angels).
LA is a cosmopolitan city, and the greater L.A. area is home to over 140 nationalities with nearly 100 different languages spoken. Living in Los Angeles, you’ll notice that many of them even have their own neighborhoods. You can spend your free time discovering Little Tokyo, Korea town, Filipino town and much more. Living in L.A. provides the perfect opportunity to explore the world without having to leave the country! And this also means there is no better place to eat authentic breakfast burritos, Korean BBQ, Ramen and the best of the best tacos…all in one day.
What most people know about LA is its film and television industries, but there is more to LA than just movies. LA has a diverse and growing economy. Being the second-most populous city in the country, next to New York, its large population of over 4 million people has no negative effect on the job opportunities available here. Sometimes, people move to LA to look for jobs, and a few years down the line, they have started their businesses and are doing very well.
Los Angeles is a large city with a wide range of activities. Talk about nice galleries and museums, sporting activities, large theme parks, world-class shopping malls, mountains for hiking, the most alluring beaches ever, movie studios, beautiful restaurants and much more. Los Angeles is also home to the LA Clippers and the championship-winning Lakers, the six-time World Series-winning Dodgers, and two amazing football teams among others.

It is no surprise that a lot of people would love to relocate to LA. However, there are just two downsides to moving to LA.
Getting an apartment can be really challenging.
