I grew up in various parts of L.A., mostly Hollywood and West L.A, however, I recently moved to Orange County. I've noticed how different and alike they can be in different aspects. To start off with, i feel like Orange County is cleaner than L.A if you look at the broader perspective of things. Although, the dynamics, culture, and even physical architecture of O.C. is the same as L.A, i believe that it's definitely much cleaner. I also feel that Orange County is less densely populated than L.A, L.A. feels much more overcrowded, especially in cities such as South Central, Hollywood, and Downtown. Lastly from my own life experience of living in both ends of these counties, i'm almost sure that L.A beats the hispanic population in correlation to O.C's raza, and chicano population. I myself am hispanic so i can see how some of our own chicanos choose to stay in L.A. rather than O.C., i'm not saying that there's not a-lot of hispanics in O.C. cause there are. I'm just saying L.A. has more. I believe the market value of O.C. is higher too in a broader perspective, just going solely based off what i've seen in my life. There are also more Asian communities in Orange County; a key example could be such as Garden Grove. If you want to go more into market value, I believe overall O.C. is safer, and that has a-lot to do with it. The gangs and violence is a bit toned down compared to L.A. You don;t see many bloods and crips in O.C. The varrios that they have out there are not as "active" in gang activity. The recalcitrancy of the whole O.C. community is a bit toned down than from that of L.A. I myself used to be from a varrio, so i know this to be factually true.

If any of you live near L.A or O.C., or even in California at all, please give me your opinion, as well as if you would like to visit Cali. If you have something interesting to say about the region or city you live in please feel free to give feedback. Orale, lates have a good one :thumbup: .

Theres a-lot to do in Hollywood and L.A... u just gotta know where to go. You don't even have to know places you can just be cruising down L.A and Hollywood and theres a never-ending list of things to do. Places to go to, the Griffith Observatory, the view, Universal Studios, Rodeo Drive, tons of museums, bars, nice places to eat, people to meet, and nice clubs too. You have to be a bit social thoo aha.


I come from Chicago, where everything is much cleaner. Seeing bums at every corner is not something I would call an attraction. To be honest, I didn't like downtown LA, and neither anything close to Hollywood.
Bars and museums - well, everywhere are such places. I came to see how people live there, and seeing homeless people everywhere I go was not a pleasant view for me.
I can't say much though since I stayed for 2 days only, but so far, only Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Beverly Hills have had a positive impact on me.
Nonetheless, I would move to Southern CA, for I don't like the cold weather :)

I live in NYC, but have visited LA a couple times.

Honestly except for skid row, I never really saw that many homeless people living in LA
