I've been in Las Vegas since 1975. We've been having L. A. style weather now for the past few weeks. Calm and 75. So strange around here to see the sun so low in the sky and have it so warm! It's still not the same though and you would have to live somewhere else for a while to know what I'm talking about. And I'm on these forums defending it every week, so, being here in Vegas so long, do I still miss it? What do you think?

Although I read somewhere that the county wasn't going to spring for palms anymore and just plant regular old trees (ones that are actually native to SoCal).

I'm back home now (New York City), heading to Chicago in a few months, but will likely make another break for California in the not-so-distant future. I miss SoCal terribly. I got hooked the minute I arrived.
Actually, the tall "California Palms" are indigenous to California. They are the very tall, skinny palms. All others were transplanted.

Nothing.

Lived there for 4 years, moved up to just north of Seattle, WA, and can't say that I have really looked back.

The only thing I miss abut L.A. is FOOD:

Dimsum at Monterey Park
Authentic Greek food
Authentic Indian Food
Authentic Mexican food (fish tacos at some hole in the wall digs that is a well guarded secret in Baldwin Park)
Yamashiro's
Authentic Armenian food
Authentic Vietnamese food
Authentic Filipino food and Filipino grocery stores
Authentic Korean kimchi

Did I mention I miss the FOOD????

LA appeals to people who like to live in or around mountains. it appeals to people who like hot weather. it appeals to people who like urban living. people who like suburban living. people that could'nt live without a beach.

i would miss the topography in FL since it's so flat.

now i'm reconsidering if i want to leave home or not
What colleges in Florida are you considering? I recommend UCF in Orlando if you are seriously making the move, awesome campus, good atmosphere, 45 minutes to the beach(Cocoa). Not nearly as big as LA but pretty good nightlife to satisfy a college student.

That's pretty funny, because New Yorkers inevitably complain about the low quality of Greek food in L.A. (as they do with Italian and Jewish food).

My NYC born girlfriend thought that Papa Cristo's was the only Greek restaurant in LA that met the standards of the Big Apple.

I don't really like Orlando. I was thinking more like USF, UNF, UM, FAU,

I don't miss Orange County, however in regards to Los Angeles proper, particularly Hollywood...I miss the incredible nightlife, balmy evenings, Metropolis and Nocturna on 89.9 KCRW and the huge number of crazily handsome latino and black men. I live in Seattle now and the lack of ethnic diversity (and integration) there is fairly stunning in comparison. I am a white male BTW...
