Than there is the humidity...ugh. A friend of mine here had a couple visit here one summer who were from New Orleans, nice people who kept commenting on how great the weather was and how they couldn't walk around like this in New Orleans as you would be a puddle.

No, they wouldn't. This past summer we had a week of unusually high humidity here. Now it was uncomfortable, but nothing compared to the south. People were whining and walking around like they were dying, it was somewhat amusing to see having lived in a humid climate.

And no, you don't get used to it. You avoid it. I wouldn't even visit New Orleans unless it was in the winter.

LA is ok to visit. Rather live elsewhere, including elsewhere in SoCal.

Yes, I grew up from Florida, and I cannot stand the humidity. I was speaking in general rather than specific to New Orleans...there are dozens of cities (4 seasons even!) where one could be happy. It's not global city or nothing.

I couldn't imagine living in New Orleans or Los Angeles.

As for as the affordable cost of living in the rest of the country, there's a reason why Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are doing so well. If the economy were that great they wouldn't have gotten this far . It's rough trying to survive in the middle of the country. You don't magically come into the middle class just because you leave a big city.

Weren't you making plans to move to LA?

Also, nobody said you automatically live a better life by moving to a more affordable city. But for many people, that is the case. It's not big city or nothing. We are lucky to live in a country with so many choices.

I know, but it's not quite the same when it's everywhere here.

I find L.A. way better to live than to visit. That's just me though.

It's bad, especially when you live in SoCal for an extended period. People from SoCal are very senitive to weather. However, although it still sucks, it isn't too terrible after awhile. I can't really wear the same clothing in the south that I could in L.A. though during the summers. Summer nights are pretty nice too. Still 100% prefer L.A. weather though that's just a no brainer.
