That, along with the fact that there are so many beaches, mountains, and entertainment options all within a reasonable distance (not to mention, the endless diversity) makes it such a unique place to be. When you're in LA, you just feel like you're actually somewhere.

And this is coming from a born and bred Bay Arean!
Personally I hate palm trees. You look straight ahead all you see is a vertical stick. Look up and you see a overgrown rats nest. They should be replaced with Crape Mertyls. A easy go grow shady tree with flowers.

I guess it comes down to what part of LA you live in. If you live in the heart of the city and close to the studios (Disney, NBC Universal, Sunset Gower, Sunset Bronson, CBS Studio's LA, CBS Studio Center, Pararmount, Raliegh Studios, Sony, etc.) you're going to hear an abundance of foreign languages spoken in the restaurants and cafe's in the area. A good chunk of those people are also tourists.

Maybe go to anywhere in the South - Crepe Mrytle's are very prevalent there. I do agree they are beautiful trees, but kind of annoying near a fountain, pool, pond, etc..

LA's housing stock is not mostly single family homes. Single family homes only count for about 39% of the housing stock in Los Angeles.
