there will always be a new discovery to make.

I went to Downtown LA, Mailbu Beach, Hollywood, and saw quite a bit of the San Fernando Valley including West Hills, Canoga Park, Chatsworth (loved the views up there), and our hotel was in Calabasas

All I can say about LA is wow....I absolutely loved it

The 101 got a bit crazy and 210 was busy too but for the most part, I didn't think the traffic was too bad. The exception to this is Hollywood. Highland Avenue and Hollywood Blvd were an absolute mess. I also love how the Valley is so quiet and sane compared to the rest of the city. The traffic there wasn't bad at all. I love the Valley.

And boy is your city spread out I thought Orlando and Las Vegas were bad. It seemed to take FOREVER to get to downtown, Hollywood, and Malibu from the Valley, even when there was light traffic

I just wanted to come on here and say I loved LA and cant wait to go back again. I recently moved from Orlando, FL two months ago, so this was my first time in LA

Im looking forward to it. Next time I would like to get down to Venice and Santa Monica Beach, I've always wanted to go to the Santa Monica Pier. I dont know why but it has always appealed to me, though most people say its not that great

Just based on what I've heard, Santa Monica seems like a very appealing place I'd like to live one day. It definitely strikes me as one of LA's more appealing areas to live. That and the San Fernando Valley. Not too big on the heat so if I ever do move to LA I'll probably take Santa Monica or West LA

In your opinions, is the rush hour traffic going south from the Valley into cityside worse on the 101 or the 405? I know they are both terrible, but which one is worse.

Check out Hermosa Beach (Pier Ave. at night), and Redondo Beach (an interesting pier as well). Manhattan Beach is often said to be the preferred place in the South Bay to live, but the prices definitely reflect that, so a bit of a tradeoff there. Living a few blocks from the beach anywhere from Malibu to PV is an awfully nice circumstance.
