Plus: Cleaner air, affluent, beach, highly educated, good schools, safe, athletic population, proximity to LAX, proximity to 405. ...Plenty of pretty white men
What makes this a good place to live?
Fairly small (pop. 35K) incorporated city = tangible sense of "community."
Very good schools - a priority among residents
Fairly low crime rate
Better than average air quality compared to LA county and beyond
Family friendly: lots of civic programs for kids / families
Not very diverse, ethnically.
Sense of crowdedness. Single family homes built very close to each other (<20 ft. apart) on small parcels (approx. 4.5K sq. ft.) Often little space for yards.
