I lived in the Los Angeles area for two years and found some areas particularly fast-paced, but the sunny sub-tropical climate is ideal.

I lived in the Los Angeles area for two years and found some areas particularly fast-paced, but the sunny sub-tropical climate is ideal.   A fun activity for retirement in Los Angeles is to be a movie extra. There is plenty of need, and one might create a new life this way, if successful.  LA has a style of its own.

Los Angeles County senior housing can be for over 55 or 62+.
