Thinking about moving to Los Angeles. What’s the best neighborhood/area for someone who’s a foodie, wants to be relatively close to the beach, safe neighborhood and does not have a car?

LA isn’t the best place if you don’t want to have a car and want to walk, but if you’re open to Uber everywhere then you have a few options. Santa Monica and Venice are popular and a younger crowd. I prefer Hermosa beach, but food options are crazy abundant but decent. Newport Beach can be decent too but too many republicans for my taste, and it’s very homogenous.

You’re probably going to need a car 😬 I live in Highland Park and love it; about 30-60 min from the beaches and I go every weekend

Lol LA and no car cannot go in one sentence my friend. Also, where are you coming from? If you come here prepare for traffic, tons of homeless, higher crime rates than normal, trashed places, and poor air quality. Not to mention paying the highest state taxes inter US. Besides the jobs here, there really isn’t much you’re missing. If you want beach, go to OC or San Diego.

People with multiple kids are probably the ones who are really looking to FIRE but, paradoxically, aren't quite able to due to the pressure of meeting current demands (mostly money, but also time) and not saving/investing quickly enough.

A truly Catch 22 situation.

Wanted to see if there is anyone here who has FIREd, or close to, with multiple kids. Know anyone who has done it from such a situation?

Hi everyone,
I am an RN/MSN working in outpatient quality management. The company’s undergone lots of transitions in the past few years and I’m in a place where I’m just trying to stay above water.

It also seems that we are constantly being asked to validate the work that we do which is pretty frustrating. I do like the people and pay is good but is it time to make a switch?
