I made the decision to move to LA for school a few days ago. Im going to visit to look at a few places and get a feel for the city (I have only been there once)

My question is what district, for lack of a better term, should I move? Ive been looking at the Downtown area, Koreatown, etc.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Money isnt exactly an issue with housing. I can afford something 1700 per month

A few things about me that might be important to know:


I like to play music but not looking to make it big or anything.

Id like a walkable area (I have a car but i will get it at the end of april when I come back home)

What has the best nightlife?

I will be trying to work in the service industry but totally cool with clerk jobs or retail.

I will attend LACC, I know where it is located and thats why im leaning towards KTown or Downtown but im open to other suggestions because that school is not cemented in as my pick, it just seems thr most convenient

Thanks for reading!

Koreatown or Hollywood. Both walkable, reasonably priced, and near the Metro. Downtown is very pricey.

Although $1700/mo won't give you a lot of options if you want your own place. Maybe a studio since 1br's generally start @ $2000/mo. Another option is to rent a room.

Are you aware that unless you are a California resident for a year first, you will pay $$$ out-of-state tuition?

I am aware. I have a scholarship that will pay for it. Housing is taken care of and tuition as well

Then why are you asking us where to live? Just drive around and make it rain. Your dream place will magically
be yours.

That's how LA works. Duh....

No, it doesn't.

Since when does a community college do that?

And I may be wrong, but I don't think their semester ends in April.

If you have a scholarship and all of your costs are covered, and you are serious about getting a college degree, LACC shouldn't even be on your radar.

There are many other much better colleges in California (and elsewhere).
