Ive recently been entertaining the idea of moving to LA, specifically Hollywood/West Hollywood area. (no desire to act, or dreams of becoming famous.) I'm looking for the most walkable/bike friendly densely populated region that is affordable. Any suggestions?

I currently live in Midtown Sacramento and looking for something similar if anyone had been to the are.

Doesn't exist. Seriously. To some extent, you get what you pay for. One of the reasons why L.A. isn't walk/bike friendly is because no one walks or bikes. Btw, density is no indicator of livability. Look at Maywood. It's a super dense hellhole.

Riding a bike in LA is a good way to get yourself killed. Its dangerous enough in a car with all the narrow lanes, curb lanes that appear and disappear at random with cars parked in them, unprotected lefts, not to mention bad drivers, unlicensed drivers in $500 disposable cars, aggressive drivers, and drivers with a cell phone in one hand and a Starbucks in the other.

What is your price range? I am not familiar with a lot of these areas but I have read posts from some people who are. I think you can find what you want but it really depends on what you can afford. Maybe not biking but walking and public transport.

West Hollywood is one of the most densely populated places in the entire country. But, also one of the most expensive. Downtown Los Angeles may be an alternative. It may be a little cheaper, I'm not sure. It may also be the same prices, just that in DT LA they are bigger. Another area to consider is Marina Del Rey or Santa Monica. Downtown Long Beach is a pretty good area now. If you're looking for bike friendly, can I suggest Portland, OR or Eugene, OR. They are both rated one of the best cities for bicyclists. I would know because I like two colleges in the area and want to apply there, but I wanted to make sure I could ride my bike safely around the city as most universities do not allow Freshman to have cars.

There are lots of places that are walkable but maybe not so bike-friendly. Pasadena, Glendale, Los Feliz, Silverlake (if you don't mind hills), Long Beach, Glendora, San Dimas, etc. Burbank has bike paths in certain parts of the town.
