Urban, I hate wasting time driving so want to do as little of it as possible. Walking for daily errands/going out is more efficient and enjoyable to me.

Also, a yard is just a really big chore, IMHO.

I feel like I have the best of both worlds. I own a townhouse in Warner Center in Woodland Hills. I'm a 5-10 minute drive from 4 malls, restaurants, shops, theaters. I can walk to the AMC theater in 9 minutes. I have a big park across the street with summer concerts, car shows and art fairs. I have no yard to tend to, but I have beautiful landscaping to look out at. There's a pond in front of my house and a waterfall that runs under my front deck. And when I want to tinker outside, I have a boat in the Marina. Best of both worlds.

You'll notice that a large part of Los Angeles is becoming increasingly suburban.

Add semi-rural into the mix. We have three kids, a fourth on the way and 2 dogs. We may look into getting a horse. We're currently in Palos Verdes but considering a move to Calabasas. We're hoping to have at least an acre in a country-like setting. I never thought I could find that in LA.

Isn't it the other way around? I see apartment blocks going up.
