The IE is definitely not an extension of Los Angeles. I have been living here for 8 boring, miserable years. I wish I had never moved here. Most people from Los Angeles don't want to visit the I.E., but they want you to visit them in Los Angeles; after awhile unless you constantly have parties or are willing to transport folks, you can forget anyone just "dropping by". It is only good if you have a family base already out here; cause people in the I.E. are not so eager to invite you into their lives, they don't have time for "outsiders", when actually most here are outsiders. There is nothing to do except shop or go to the movies. There are the casinos. But mostly you will find yourself commuting to Los Angeles for work and entertainment; which you will tire of really quickly. It is difficult right now to find jobs; the unemployment rate is over 15%. People are not friendly. I do like the peacefulness; but after so much of it, cabin fever sets in. The schools are much better than Los Angeles. Although I crave the excitement of Los Angeles I don't really want to move back because now I feel like a "germ-a-phobe" after living in a area cleaner than the dirty streets of Los Angeles. I will be relocating to Dallas shortly. I am still doing research on the area; if anyone can give me some positive/negative insight on Dallas please feel free.....

Wow, you must not get out of the house much then, or you haven't even tried. It's no LA, but there are plenty of things to do.

Well, I came to this thread because the name Inland Empire has always intrigued me. Empire of what? I do a lot of business in So Cal and sometimes have to go as far east as Loma Linda. I don't get it. Seems like you have all of the hassles of So Cal and none of the perks. Unless being close to Palm Springs is a biggie.

That said, I've lived in Dallas for more than 30 years. It's not perfect. No place is. But a lot of people live here and like it. Check the Dallas forum for more info.

It's a chamber of commerce kind of name, made up by the same types who call Breezewood, PA "The Town of Motels". Yeah, it's ridiculous, but so are chamber of commerce types.
