I'm looking at a job in Santa Monica while my wife will be going to school in Long Beach. Is there a decent place in between the two to live? We have an 11 month old daughter so we are not looking for night life, just an area that is relatively safe. I want to spend about $1800 or less a month. I have been reading and have seen that the commute going N on 405 will be crazy. I live in Idaho so I have no idea. Thanks Jason

Manhattan Beach. It's nice, safe, and has good schools. Most importantly, it's in the middle of SM and LB.

All depends on when you leave for work. At 5am you can live much closer to Long Beach. Easy enough to get to Santa Monica in 30 minutes at 5am.

Manhattan Beach isn't really a bit Apartment rental city, at least not on the westside. I'd suggest you look at El Segundo or Redondo. You'd be able to find a nice 2BR in the $1800-2000 range. I'd probably give the nod to El Segundo due to easy freeway access. And you can cut a bit of time off your Santa Monica drive time by taking Pershing Dr. behind LAX.
