Hello,

My fiance and I will most likely need to move to the LA area for work. We have a 7 year old so schools are a big factor. Idealy we would move to a location just outside of the city so that we can have more space, my husband will commute when needed (he is a musician, so it's not an everyday thing). Any suggestions??

THANKS!!!!!!!

Is musician his full time job? If not where is his full time job?
Is mom going to work? Where?
Rent or buy? Budget or price range?
Private school OK?

Just outside the city could be Pomona or Camarillo.

Here's a good start:

Check out La Mirada... we like it! Our schools are "blue ribbon" and there are tons of community activities for kids. It's a relatively safe, clean, and well-managed city. Good luck!

What are you looking for in a community? What kind of things do you like to do? Places do you like to hang out at? I find that different parts of Greater L.A. have a wide range of things to offer.

If good schools, quiet neighborhoods and more space is what you're looking for, Santa Clarita is pretty good for that. I've been in Stevenson Ranch for many years now. That being said, depending on where you work, the commute can be bad. We just listed our house a little bit ago for that very reason. I just wrote about this in another thread:

//www.city-data.com/forum/los-a...mmuting-2.html

If you want more cool funky places to eat/hang out at, though, you might be better off in other "hipper" parts of L.A. (Silverlake, Culver City).

Definitely more space up here though.

Mount Washington. The elementary school is one of the best in the City. Also, South Pasadena. Both have light rail as well. I'm a musician as well- what kinda of music does he play?

I'll second Santa Clarita. Highly rated public schools though ours are in private. Which ever area you choose to live in santa clarita, you wont be disappointed. Very family orientated.
