Hello CA! While attempting to figure out what to do with my life, I have decided to consider moving to CA, but cannot narrow it down to one area - I've considered SF, SD, LA - and have heard some positive things about Studio City. Is it a great/safe place? I'm single, no family, so am not concerned about schools, etc...but am just looking for a nice friendly place, and Studio City seems nice??

Sounds like you've got a fat kitty and/or big income and bank account (these places will be happy to drain it for you), but if you're one of those dreamers trying to wing it on say 35K or so, probably best to move along.

Yes, I would definitely need to be rolling in more than $40k, that is for sure! Honestly right now the main concern of mine is finding an area that is not a huge threat of being involved in "the big one" (earthquake). Really freaks me out. So I may look more towards SD, even though SF would be my very first pick.

you really shouldn't worry about "the big one". the chances of it happening aren't too good. sure it might happen soon, but no one knows.

I went through the Northridge earthquake. I went through Hurricane Andrew in South Miami.
I left Sloan Kettering in NYC right before 9/11. Quite an experience on all counts. It's reasonable to take common sense precautions, but why make lifestyle decisions based on things you can't control? There is always something to worry about in life. Find a place based on your needs and enjoy life.

you are more likely to get killed driving to work than getting killed in an earthquake.
