I guess it depends on where you start from and where you finish on San Vicente. I know the WeHo portion can be awful. But once you get to the mid city and especially south of Olympic it can move quite fast, and taking Washington from there can fly. Even Olympic moves pretty good off of San Vicente.

For Dan's requirements, I threw out WeHo, preferably closer to Sunset as well as the Beverly Hills border. But Palazzo, yikes. I would think you could find a much better rental closer to the fun on the Sunset Strip.

Taking a bicycle? Well yes of course it CAN be done, but I certainly don't recommend it.

you might also want to try miracle mile, south of wilshire.

here's the thing: try to keep the bulk of your commute in a single direction, as much as possible. that's why i would recommend culver city over west hollywood, even though the former is farther east than the latter, for the most part. you don't want to deal with a long stretch of south-bound traffic, and then another long stretch of east/west traffic, if you can help it.

i think sunset is much too far north to consider...but maybe that's just me. i live within two blocks of sunset, and i know that i wouldn't want to drive from here to USC every day.

Well, you asked for nightlife, people your age (preferably attractive women), nice area so I threw out the Sunset Strip and WeHo. I think that would fit all of your requirements quite well. I know people who commute from the high desert to west LA, I'm talking 3 hours each way...I can't even fathom how or why someone would put up with such a thing.

It really depends on how much commute you can stomach. If 30 minutes to an hour each way is intolerable (and it varies...some days you may be lucky and you fly, other days traffic is unreal...Biblical bad), then forget WeHo/Sunset Strip.

Miracle Mile is awesome. Hell, most of the west side of LA is awesome. Lots of parts of LA in general are awesome. Culver City is okay, I mean personally it's nothing to write home about. I have one of my offices here, where I spend most of my day. I know it well. It's never really impressed me, and all I can say is thank God they opened up a Father's Office location down here. I would rather choose to live in West Adams rather than Culver City if I were in your shoes (and if I was leaning toward Culver City), because in my opinion it's pretty much the same thing, but at least West Adams is right next to USC. Either that or downtown.

My other office is in Hancock Park, which personally would be one of my ideal places to live. I currently live in the "slums" of Beverly Hills.

the palazzo is near lots of things, including a very busy outdoor mall. traffic congestion in that area is crazy, not only at rush hour, but any time of day when the weather is nice. it has all the amenities one could ask for in apartment living, but your budget won't get you more than a one-bedroom there.

another suggestion: larchmont. a little closer to USC than weho or miracle mile, and quite safe. i was just in larchmont village on saturday night, and there were lots of young people out and about.
