I get the impression you either have never lived in Los Angeles for a long period of time, or you've visited, but you only visited a small portion, because this statement has false written all over it. Have you ever stepped foot in Venice, walked through Hollywood, on Melrose, etc.?

You honestly believe the majority of Los Angeles is all about fashion and Hollywood?

When people think of the good life in California, they are thinking of San Diego or Orange County.

Los Angeles on the other hand, apart from the westside and few other small nodes, is most people's idea of a craphole.

Maybe I'm just not most people, but I love Los Angeles. I don't know why would someone call it a craphole if you don't live in South LA. I travel often and can't wait to get back to LA because of the city alone. Just me tho. I've been to SD, and it's an awesome city, but I would never exchange LA for SD or especially OC. It's just too boring there, little action, not as many things to do as there are in LA. Los Angeles has everything you may ever want, including the bad stuff, of course (homeless, traffic).

You're speaking for yourself. The reality is, people vote with their feet.
So take your trolling somewhere else.

You still didn't answer what parts of LA are crap holes. I bet if you tried, Id shoot your bs down.

I like San Diego, but it's not all great there either. East county, south Bay etc didn't look great or attractive to me..

And la's west side is frigging huge. So the nice areas are far larger and more populated than San Diego's.

Also, orange County is the LA suburbs. So the nice areas there are in the la metro.

your post is funny. San Diego is not Eureka, CA or Portland, OR. There is nothing overtly hippie about San Diego any more than other cities.

And like others said, San Diego County (outside the city limits) is more politically conservative than just about anywhere in SoCal.

Yep. That's another thing I love about greater LA!! Its generally liberal, but no insufferably so!!

No it's not; Parts of Orange County, San Bernardino, and Riverside are easily just as conservative, if not more, as anything in SD County.

So is that why LA has negative net domestic migration then? More people moving away than in.

So does NYC.

But they're still the two most popular cities in America by far.
