Oh and those beaches you think are so awesome, well they are all ringed by powerstations that pump waste into the sea all around los angles, you cannot even eat the fish until 20 miles out as they are so full of toxins...

... North of LA its nice, but but Los Angeles is just horrible, and the only people that can even live by the beach pay on avg of $5k a month in rent, what kind of laid back lifestyle is that?
I don't really like LA, but apart from LA I completely disagree - San Diego?? Amazing place, chilled out, great beaches/weather/culture...Santa Barbara - absolute paradise!

LA is an anomaly to the beautiful relaxed SoCal vibe...LA is a giant metropolis, it is bound to have pollution, gangs, etc, we have all that here in London!

Australia is just too flat for my liking - SoCal beaches + SoCal mountains + SoCal lifestyle = Very happy life

And northern California has epic beaches, with the redwood trees by the beach!

How can one person's comment lead to a generalisation of others, that's just ignorant. Besides, Asian Americans are actually more globally and culturally aware than the average white Aussie. They're also much less likely to be obese. White people in the bible belt are a different story

San Jose is awesome: great urban center, neighborhoods, not too far from beaches, nice weather and lots of diversity
