LA County born and raised, checking in.
Obviously, we need to know a little more about you and what you want in a city. But, here are the BIGGEST differences.
••• MOST IMPORTANTLY •••
LA is a big, major, international city.
SD is... not.
If you want things that generally exist only in big major international cities, then, LA hands down.
Things such as...
• direct nonstop flights to ALL major world cities
• networking opportunities with businesspeople from all over the world, all the time
• cinematic and arts premieres
• awards shows and other miscellaneous celebrity appearances
• designer flagship stores + special collections for those boutiques only
• performances from EVERY major touring artist
• a big live off-Broadway theatre scene
• cuisine from EVERY imaginable corner of EVERY country in the world, both high-end and low-end
• truly world-class libraries and high culture (symphony, opera, etc)
• international conventions (especially in fashion, technology, and gaming)
• trials of start-up businesses
• headquarters of modeling/talent agencies
• cutting-edge new restaurants, bars, and other nightlife venues
• the best doctors and surgeons in the world
If any of these things are important to you, then you have a winner, and that is Los Angeles.
LA is also MUCH more likely to have SOMEWHERE where you'll fit in -- because LA is big, and diverse, and full of quirky neighborhoods that each have their own character. No matter how weirdly "niche" yr interests are... SOMEONE in this 15,000,000-person metro area will share them.
Some other things:
• Both cities have AMAZING weather. If you bitch about the weather in either place, you are a spoiled brat and deserve every ounce of yr dissatisfaction with life. (:
There are slight differences, though. SD is SLIGHTLY warmer -- just a few degrees -- and significantly less humid. (LA is MUCH more humid during the months of August, September, and early October, especially around downtown and the westside -- during those months, it's almost as humid as Dallas or Chicago. This is something that even people from other parts of California don't seem to know.)
• If you want to do anything in entertainment, obviously you need to be in LA.
• Getting to the beach in LA, if you don't LIVE right on the beach, is an all-day production (and parking is expensive, too). Getting to the beach in SD, on the other hand, takes fifteen or twenty minutes max.
If surfing or just being a beach bum is yr thing -- ESPECIALLY if
I don't really have a preference, since I don't know those places that well as I have not been to either place yet.
But if it's between which place I want to go see or visit first and if I had to pick, then I'd go and visit LA first. And if there's still time and money I have left I'd go to San Diego afterwards.
