Hi there:) We are currently in Pasadena, but looking to move to the above mentioned areas or surrounding to live where the school systems are good.  A couple of questions:

 

-Do any of you commute to south bay LA? how bad/long is it?

 

-what are the families in your area like?  laidback? friendly? pretentious?

 

-on a scale of 1-10, how "crunchy/green" is your area?  yoga? farmers markets? schools that emphasize nutrition and a better future of planet and health, other families who dont vaccinate?

 

-how culturally/economically diverse is your area?

 

-weather that differs? i think valencia is warmer than TO for example...

 

-what do you like/dislike?

 

We would love to stay in an urban area, we love what cities have to offer, good individually owned restaurants as opposed to chains, cultural diversity, things going own within the community.  However, we just cant afford it and at this time we would like space, preferably a backyard for the kids, and a good public education.  though i would prefer a great charter school education:)

 

We are starting to explore areas on the weekends, so any suggestions good or bad on these areas or other areas that can commute to south bay would be great!  We are also new to california in itself, hence why i dont know much of the areas:) thank you!
