Our top moving tips when moving to Los Angeles

Our top moving tips when moving to Los Angeles

Get ready to trade in your snow boots for sandals: LA boasts sunny and mild temperatures nearly year-round, with minimal rainfall mostly in the winter months. With an average high of 75 and low of 56 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll walkin’ (or cruisin’) on sunshine most days of the year.

You’ll also share the sunny freeways with fewer folks. The City of Angels is made up of about 4 million residents (around half of the population within the 5 boroughs of NYC).

Before you put the keys into the ignition though, there’s quite a bit to know about LA. Here’s a few points to get you primed for your move:

  • Trading in your MetroCard for Car Keys: The rumors are true — heavy traffic in Los Angeles is real. Generally, most Angelenos drive cars to get where they are going and traffic can be thick. In this part of SoCal, where you are in relation to “the 405”, the infamously congested freeway around LA, may help inform some decisions about getting to where you live (or want to live), work, and play. The ability to rely on public transit just isn’t the same in LA as it is for many in NYC. The Metro in LA does have rail and bus options, but are not as expansive as the MTA. That said, depending on where you’re located in the city, you may find there are some ride options that take you where you want to go. As the holder of a California driver’s license, you’ll also want to make sure you’re getting a smog inspection for your car if it’s required.
  • Hitting the trails: Whether moving to LA is for work or leisure, you’ll be happy to know there are a lot of options available to enjoy the great outdoors and the surrounding areas. There are hiking trails for all skill levels. And, if you want to enjoy the outdoors with a bit of Hollywood flair, check out Bronson Canyon. It was featured in such films as Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Army of Darkness. It’s also home to Bronson Cave, featured as the Bat Cave in the Batman TV show from the ‘60’s. The great outdoors in LA isn’t just for landlubbers, there are hikes that feature waterfalls to admire as well! No matter what direction you go in, just make sure to slather on some sunscreen and bring water with you.
  • Sampling the local bounty: With its mild Mediterranean weather, fruits (and other produce) of the land abound in Southern California. The state itself is the top producer of agricultural delights in the country, according to the US Department of Agriculture. If you’d like to get your hands dirty (or just venture beyond your local grocer), you can get up-close-and-personal with the local farms in your new neck of the woods. One place you might consider is Apricot Lane Farms. For a small fee and a reservation, you can tour the grounds growing 75 different types of produce and check out the lambs and ewes doing their best to graze the pastures and fertilize the soil. If you’re into more of the fermented version of local produce, then you don’t have to drive north to Napa or Sonoma Valleys to sample a taste or tipple of wines — Southern California’s got wineries, too.
  • Finding your neighborhood: Figuring out what part of the city you’d like to live in that has the amenities, activities, restaurants, and nightlife (if that’s your thing) could really cut down on your drive time. Much like NYC, each neighborhood has its own flavor. For those who stay out late to be where the hip folks are, Silver Lake or Echo Park might be for you. If you thrive in the thick of it, you may opt to put your roots down in Downtown or Century City. For those who thrive in walkable locations, Frogtown (a.k.a. Elysian Valley) may be where you can get where you’re going on bike or on foot easily. It may take some time (and maybe even some moves) to find the neighborhood that has just what you want. Whether you desire to land among the movie stars or find your home in the canyon, it’s good to do your research ahead of time so your chances of living in a neighborhood that suits your needs and desires are higher.
  • Costs of SoCal Living: The good news? You probably won’t have significant sticker shock when it comes to your new Pacific coast location, though Angelenos enjoy a slightly lower cost of living as compared to NYC. Cities like LA and San Francisco are often neck-and-neck for most expensive places to live in the US with NYC (which currently holds the title). With a median house costing about $636,900 and average 1-bedroom rent running about $1450 a month in LA, you’re likely not raising any eyebrows at housing costs having lived in NYC already. The closer you live to the downtown area, the higher the rents. Dining out at a mid-range restaurant to enjoy a three-course meal will run you about $80 on average and if you’re enjoying a bottle of wine at home, it may cost you somewhere around $13.50. While the public transit is limited, the cost of a ride is $1 per ride than riding the Subway in New York ($1.75 in LA vs. $2.75 in NYC).
  • Checking out the Hollywood Scene: Just because you’ll be a resident of Tinseltown doesn’t mean you can’t be a tourist in the face of all the glitters about the storied city! Take a stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame to find the names of your favorite stars (you can also get right to your favorite spots by checking out the website ahead of time). Having opened in 1927, you can visit a historic cinematic site: the TCL Chinese Theatre, complete with imported Chinese temple bells, pagoda, and other artifacts. Located on Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills is the iconic Hollywood Sign. You don’t have to climb to get a good look though, there are many views to choose from. If you’re itching to be on set, you can check out the “World-Famous Studio Tour” at Universal Studios. It’s a working set with a lot of history — and it was constructed with famed director, Stephen Speilberg’s consultation! These are just a few of the entertainment biz offerings to check out. There’s so much to see, you may just become a forever tourist in your own (new) hometown.
