Get a job first, then move near the job. But, having said that, as a fellow Virginian who has lived on both coasts I recommend one thought above all others: The Beach. The Beach. The Beach. The Beach. The Beach. It's the one thing we don't have in Virginia, the thing that makes LA special above all other things (IMO).

There's a metro station in El Segundo, it services El Segundo, Manhattan, Redondo and Hermosa. There's metro in Long Beach, too. Pick any beach city, IMO the beach is the place to live.

Valid point, of course. I probably wouldn't be able to compare Virginia Beach and the Tidewater area to Huntington or Manhattan Beach, etc!

LOL, Virginia is a big state. VA Beach isn't near northern Virginia. You have to drive several hours to get there. We have a few tiny sandy spots along the Potomac, but I wouldn't call them beaches. The closest "real" beaches to northern Virginia are actually in Delaware.
