We were in LA in 2008, but just like tourists. But I saw many crazy people at nigt in Venice and Inglewood (our hotel was near from LAX airport).

Besides, if any of you needs information about going to visit/work to Spain, dont doubt to contact me
How are you going to work in the States? You'll need a visa and a job, both of which are extremely hard to get these days.
and....."Ay, mi madre!" why in the hell L.A.?

Curious. What is your definition of crazy people? I like Venice. During the summer months, I've hiked or biked along the Strand from Santa Monica with friends to Venice and beyond, have lunch and lounge on the beach. For me, I would live in certain areas of Venice because I know the area. For you, I can't tell you what would be appropriate for your individual taste. Go to the internet, look at YouTube etc. There are many resources that would help you decide where to live. Those of us who live in Los Angeles, have a different perspective. You were a tourist here and really don't understand the city dynamics. If you are serious about moving to the Los Angeles area, maybe you should rent first before buying a property. Where is the location of your job? Commuting is not a pleasant experience. The freeways are crowded with many vehicles. There are so many things to consider? Do you like the beaches, valleys, mountains or desert areas?

Why are you moving from Spain to the United States anyway? Why did you select the Los Angeles area? Do you have relatives here or another family support base?

You might want to stick to the whiter areas. Otherwise, you and your kids (especially if they are clean cut) will probably get beat up or picked on. I'd recommend Simi Valley, Agoura Hills, Valencia. Also, in Orange County, someplace like MissionViejo, San Clemente. Even Ventura County, Camarillo.
