    Los Angeles is a culturally rich city with so much to offer. If you don't like the beach, then there are countless hiking trails and parks to explore. I personally enjoy roaming through the art museums, particularly the LACMA, which usually have beautiful outdoor areas and cafes offering delicious food. And speaking of food, you could probably eat out every day and never eat at the same place twice! There are so many different cuisines and food options available whether you're a meat-eater, vegetarian, vegan, etc. It's a great place to live, visit, and explore!

    I love living in Los Angeles. Its diverse and exciting. My neighborhood of Miracle Mile is very walkable. There are museums and nearby grocery stores and restaurants. I like that there is so much to see in Los Angeles. I never get bored! I really like the people here too. They are down-to-earth and kind. Even though there is traffic, I like to drive. And if you don't like to drive, Los Angeles is expanding its public transportation through the metro line. I look forward to starting a family and raising my kids here in my favorite town!

    They say New York is the city that never sleeps, I beg to differ. Although I love LA and the vibe it has, it's a normal routine to hear sirens or helicopters or arguments from girls at the club. But other than that, LA is very diverse and so many people share their culture and it's a beautiful thing. Everything is walking distance or a simple bus ride so cars aren't really necessary unless you want to be on the 101 for an hour. But overall LA is a beautiful, diverse place!
