Los Feliz Diva,

Which assets in CA would you say are overlooked?

I also moved to the Northeast from LA, and I don't miss LA one bit. The Northeast is where literature, history, journalism, colonial architecture, four seasons and charming scenery, slower pace of life, work ethic, and manners outweigh the superficial banalities of LA.

I live in PA, and the people here are genuinely nice compared to the "fake" niceness of Southern CA. The people I met here in PA are real, not like Southern CA and Angelenos in particular. I once drove a car in PA with a wrecked front end for one week going to work, and nobody batted an eye as I drove on the streets. In contrast, Southern Californians would laugh and stare at me (I experienced this myself in LA) because the car is a symbol of self and personality in LA.

I don't miss southern CA at all. I'll take the four seasons, the snow, the culture, and the real people of PA over the superficialities of southern CA.

People in the Northeast are hard to get to know at first because they do not seem outwardly friendly. But once they get to know you after a certain time, they become your friends for life.

i have experienced all over the US. and no offense. i hate snow just as much as when i'm in montreal, or switzerland, or parts of bavaria or austria!

snow sucks whether i'm in the US or abroad.. and that's why i live here. and more power to people who don't mind snow for a goodly portion of their year.

i'm not smug, i just know a climate that isn't suitable to me when i experience it.
LosFeliz..I totally get where you are coming from. My in-laws are cold blooded creatures. They cannot tolerate the cold so they live in Bakersfield. We also lived in Bakersfield which was the worst experience of my life. Not just because Bakersfield, IMO is one of the ugliest places in Ca. but the HEAT!!!!OMG! How do people tolerate living in 100+ for months at a time and are landlocked? My body temp runs very warm so colders climates are better for me. The rest is just culture,finances,people,etc. Plus my car insurance is so low here! And registration is $50 for two years! No sales tax on clothes and 20 minutes away is New Hampshire that has no sales tax period. Drive a little further and you are having fresh lobster in Maine for lunch. Cape Cod is an hour and there are plenty of beaches that are 30 minutes from here. We have a ski resort 10 minutes from here too. So, you see...I feel we have it all.

You speak the truth, The best thing we ever did was move out of the pits of SoCal to the south. And what you say seems to hold true here also.
In California you can bet that group of thugs they call the chp would had you for that wrecked front end.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaah, these posts are making me homesick.

Puffle, I'm sorry to be late to the party on this one...I haven't checked in at citydata for a long time...but just wanted to give a shout out and a wave and to tell you that your place is beautiful, and I'm glad you're enjoying the seasons. Tell the northeast that JerZ said "hi".
