Default Best areas in LA?

Wich areas in Los Angeles would you recommend for a high school student who wants to live in an relatively big area with wealthy people and not dangerous?
And wich places should i defenetly not go too?

Near the beach and other attractions would be great, not boring areas with just old people and you know places like that.. Just fun areas as in the movies and series haha

Beverly Hills, Westwood, Santa Monica (near the beach), West Hollywood. I live in the Hollywood Hills, pretty secure and nice people.

Places to avoid: Downtown LA, East LA, South LA (completely ghetto), Compton, Long Beach (even tho some areas are nice), etc, etc, etc.

you don't just decide to come to America and end up coming. I think you need to talk to the American Embassy in Sweden. I really doubt you will be coming in the near future... you don't just decide you want to be an exchange student and suddenly you will be able to make it work and choose where you are going to live. You idea and dreams are wonderful, but I think you need to be a little more realistic and not decide where you will live.

Actually im realistic. There is a lot of great host families which im having contact with. The orange county and la county school district accept exchange students so now i just have to choose where i want to live and then i will get my F-1visa from the swedish embassy.
Im not that stupid. And i know that im going, this has been a dream of mine siene forever. And now its finally coming true. Im so happy!!

Not to get too hipster on anyone, but I like the Los Feliz area. Walkable, shops, good mixture of people, feels vibrant and young and growing... more like a little community than the vast expanse of L.A.
