I second San Diego. There’s barely any public transit in LA.. every errand takes 2 hours 🤣. The hiking is pretty good, but it’ll take a while to get to the cool spots if you live by the beach. There’s no shortage of things to do in LA, but, as you can tell, my main gripe is that everything is so spread out

I lived in the Bay Area then moved to LA last year. For your circumstances I’d recommend LA. Santa Monica, West Hollywood, maybe Culver City are where you hip youngsters will want to hang out. I live in Pasadena which is a little more suburban but closer to hiking, has a nice neighborhood vibe etc.

I’d go to SEA in a heartbeat. But between LA and San Jose, LA wins hands down. I have lived in LA and on the peninsula.

LA! I also moved from east coast. Spent a lot of time in San Jose due to tech clients and agree it is super boring. Everything closes pretty early San Diego is very nice but I think it’s too small. I think LA will be more fun for someone who’s single.

Also considering Seattle but I am not sure how easy the travel is going to be if my clients are in south-central region

Not true. Seattle is beautiful

San Jose is terrible and costs so much for a horrible life style. LA for sure but where on the East Coast are you and why are you leaving ?

I lived in Northern Virginia for two years and totally get what you are saying. Come west!

Thank you all!! This is very helpful :)
