Sick of the New England winters, my husband and I are looking to move to the West coast. We’ve visited San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, none of them have felt like the place to uproot us.

I’m hoping you can provide suggestions on neighborhoods we should check out that fit the bill, or if another county would be a better fit?

Ideally looking for a neighborhood that’s within a few blocks of restaurants and cafes that is slightly suburban in terms of single family homes, where we could ultimately purchase for between $7-800k. We stayed in Silver Lake which had great restaurants and cafes nearby but was exceptionally compact. Driving through Los Feliz seemed to provide a bit more room but I don’t think would fit in that range. West Hollywood also seems too high. We loved little Tokyo but appeared to be more apartment complexes.

We drove by Glendale but not really through it. What about Pasadena? Or Long Beach? Or am I in the wrong county altogether and should be looking closer to Irvine? West Covina? I tried to research as many neighborhoods as possible before getting here but it’s such a large city I don’t think you can fully prepare. We have one day left to checkout the neighborhoods before returning home. Thank you!
Pasadena all the way! Homes within walking distance to shops and cafes...excellent. I hate California but love Pasadena.
