good luck with the UCLA gig. You would want to look at the westside close to UCLA if posible.

Westwood
Santa Monica
Brentwood
Mar Vista
Palms
Mid Wilshire

Positives are:
Great air quality
Close
Great quality of life
Life in the city

Cons are:
$$$

If you want you can try the San Fernando Valley which cost less. I have a bad Westside bias so not for me, but plenty do it make it work

Good Luck

What Joe said.

I lived in the South Bay (Manhattan Beach down to San Pedro). It was really nice but it was a nightmare getting to UCLA.

You may want to consider Culver City - it has changed A LOT in the last 20 years - much nicer and not far from the more expensive areas like Santa Monica and Westwood.

More affordable and very Mid West feeling. Schools are good...My wife teaches 4th grade there.

California has a HORRIBLE education sytem. If you have children who are 5 and older then read on.......California is close to rock bottom in the U.S. in terms of how little $ is spent on each individual student. Here is a link from October 2011 showing it is ranked 46 out of 50: http://californiawatch.org/dailyreport/ ... tion-13099). Then you are also contending with the large size of the classes and lack of individual attention. This is not really something other people have to contend with or figure out in many other states. I grew up in New Jersey so it was a non-issue: you just went to the local elementary, middle and high school - end of story. In So. Cal., you have many people who, if they cannot afford to pay the $25k per year for their 5 year old to attend a private kindergarten, they will "permit" their child in order to attend a better school in an area different than where they live. This permitting is based on having a work address or other and getting approval based on that alternate address to attend another public school.

As a So. Cal. resident for almost 22 years with children ages 6 and 3, it was something my wife and I had to figure out and stress over even living in the suburbs of Sherman Oaks. The local kindergarten/elementary school here is not the greatest and we were fortunate enough to enter a lottery and win a spot for my son to attend a charter school only a short distance away.

You will definitely want to pay attention to and do your homework on what local schools your children would be going to based on what area you decide to live in. Here is a link to the rankings of California schools: http://www.school-ratings.com/

Just some food for thought besides driving distance, clean air, etc. for your move.

Best,

Goldie

I will be staying at Cleveland clinic. Housing it outrageous. I can afford a nice trailer. My house would probably go for 21/2 million out there. But we'll see
