Nothing really.

Not a lot is bad but not a lot is great either.

It never gets boring in LA. I like there is always something happening in LA from music concerts, museum exhibitions, running and biking events, movie premieres, Oscars, Grammys and other award shows, TV tapings, sporting games of professional and top colleges, outdoor movie nights at the parks, and dozens of other stuff. On top of that you can do the hiking, surfing, skiing all not too far away in great weather most of the year.

I think the only problem is everything is so spread and it takes forever to get one place because of traffic, but that is not exclusive to LA.

Even after decades, and a lot of exploring, I still find neighborhoods I've never been to before, and occasionally find cities I've never even heard of before (Bradbury???).

I love the history, the diversity, the food, architecture, uniqueness, the beach, the weather, the plants and vegetation, the natural beauty, the close by getaways, the renaissance of DTLA, the much improved clean air, public transportation improvements, concerts, festivals and cultural amenities.

Things I don't like:
Rude drivers and way too many people laying on their horns.
Hit and run drivers. Overpriced, raggedy ass apartments. People that think only poor people use public transportation. The Grove.

I've lived all across the US, and there is no place better than California and Los Angeles tops the list.

There's a lot to do there and its a huge diverse place and very liberal. Go outside of the US and you can find better, but inside the state it's the best you can get.

All the cute girls flock to LA as well

Seriously tho...The Grove is not that bad. I get it's crowded and a pain to get into. But that is why I park near Pan Pacific and walk over. It also has the closest Apple Store to me and a plenty nice--albiet--expensive movie theater.

No expensive than any other movie theater. The times we live in. Hitting up the grove in the afternoon for a lunch, easy in, easy out. Weekends, especially weekends leading up to the holiday season are a never.

I like LA for weather, diversity, the neighborhoods, the fact that there is always something to do.
