LA is huge.! There are several districts and areas. 4 million people in the city and 14 million people in the county. There are the upscale more affluent sections and the low income and crime-ridden areas. You seem a little starry-eyed and naive. I was born and raised in LA and I have only seen a celebrity one time within walking distance. If you want to see celebrities, you need to get closer to them in Hollywood, Westwood, Burbank, Culver City, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, Fairfax, Studio City, Century City and the San Fernando Valley. Celebrities are people too. They dislike being invaded when they try to live their life off camera. They can become agitated and hostile to fans, photographers and reporters.
Every year, millions of young people come from farms and small towns in the South and Midwest to LA with dreams of achieiving stardom. Hoping to get into the movie and modeling industries. Most of them wind up on the steets and homeless. They are addicted to drugs and become prostituties to support their habit. They usually end up dead. LAPD notifies the parents and families. They have to fly out to LA to identify their loved ones in the morgue. You may come out here, and do just fine. Some actaully make it. But, you need to do a little research and build a savings account. Find out about the traffic, economics, demographics, diversity, culture, real estate and various industries. Make plans to attend college and enter the workforce. Don't become another news story and sad statistic. That is not the way to get your name in the paper.

Originally Answered: Should I make the move from Los Angeles to Chicago? If so, where is the best place to live for a 25 y/o woman?
Winters in Chicago can be hardcore. We just had the coldest and snowiest winter in at least 35 years, so hopefully we won't have another one of those for a while. But millions of people are able to handle it, from babes in arms to octogenarians. Yes! We have a four season climate and many people love it. The summers are generally fabulous with all kinds of summer events outdoors. In fact, I have heard people say Chicago is one of the very best cities in the U.S. for summer fun and they mean that, I agree with them. Spring is chilly/cool/warm with some rain and Autumn is warm/cool/chilly with less rain and more sun than Spring.
You can start checking online for jobs and apartments and all the rest. There is a good deal of info to be found there. The job market is somewhat soft right now, so I would begin looking for potential jobs now. If you have the skills and education for the jobs which are in demand and are motivated you should succeed. The internet will be your great asset in learning all about Chicago.
Chicago consists of 77 community areas each on of which contains one or more of Chicago's more than 200 neighborhoods. Some neighborhoods in which you might be interested are, South Loop, Lincoln Park, Ukrainian Village, Wicker Park, Buck Town and Lake View. Info on all these and more can be found online.
If you have a roommate you should be able to find two bedroom apartments in the $1600 range. There are less expensive neighborhoods, but they are usually further from downtown, less hip and may have somewhat higher crime rates. In addition to the advice people can give you about Chicago here, you will still need to do all the homework you can online to really get a handle on what is happening where in the Windy City.
Here are some links to get you started:
Things To Do:
I've lived here my entire life, I'm an actress too, just not famous, heh.
Anyway, it's pretty good here, but you wont see celebrities all the time, it depends on where you are. It's actually a big place with a bunch of different little cities. It is filled with a lot of smog, and traffic. Some places aren't as nice as other places, and it's NOT what you see on TV!! The beach is never too far, but it's not like the beaches in Hawaii!
There's a lot of people. Movies and fashion are a big deal here. There are some pretty neat things to see if you've never been here before.
The biggest problem is everything is WAY expensive, especially Gas and Housing. Make sure you have a lot money! I would take a visit out here first, I think you'd like it.

I am a third generation Angelino. It pains me to admit that the quality of life has gone down since I was a child.
Housing is unaffordable. A 3 bedroom 2 bath house in a decent school district is half a million dollars.
Rent is going to be just as astronomical.
The traffic jams are wide spread. They are do intense that the first thing most local news stations broadcast in the morning is traffic.
Expect to pay 40% more for insurance in LA.
There is any type of party and you can still meet any type of person you want. Education opprotunities are excellent. The beach scene is as good as you can hope for. However,if you ignore surfing ediquete you will be beaten up.
Even though the weather is good, I would recoment Texas, Arizona, Florida, or other sun belt states.

Some areas of L.A. are gross. But, your friend is an idiot. L.A. is awesome! There are nice places to live, but sadly, no celebrity's are not falling out of the sky in L.A., that is a common misconception. Try moving to a beach city, such as Mahattan, Hermosa, or Redondo Beach, if you want to be close to L.A. but in a nice, clean, beach setting. Marina Del Rey is also nice. If you want to be in L.A. where the celebrity's are you would have to move into the heart of L.A. more like Los Feliz area. Most of the studios are in Burbank now anyway, not in Hollywood.

If your motivation for moving to L.A. is based on sighting a celebrity - I strongly advise against it.
L.A. is a lifestyle - fast paced, heavy culture, glitz, glamour, and ghetto. The city will easily eat you alive if you are distracted and star struck. As a native, celebrity is lost on me - does nothing for me. Believe me, the celebrities I think you are referring to (movie and rock stars) aren't just standing around waiting for fans to get a glimpse of them. Actually, they are evasive and frequent places that would be impossible for an avid fan to get into.
If you can afford it and are intent enough, go to the Chateau Marmont in the summer and have lunch and drinks by the pool. The more greenbacks you throw around the more likely you will be to get where you need to be for rubbing elbows with all types of celebrities. Just remember to respect their privacy and maintain your dignity! Some are nicer than others, but you won't be the first obsessed fan they have dealt with - remember they are just people too. Once you have seen enough - hop on a plane back to wherever you came from. L.A. will eat you alive!

I live in LA and love it. I live by the sea kind of and It's really only nice by the sea or by (or in) the Santa Monica mountains. Move to Bel Air or something. It's really nice around there.

I like La for its weather, the beaches and the diversity of the population. It has what ever you want. it is absurd to think that celebrity viewing is tourist destination.

To be honest, it never hurts to be a little bit nicer. I find that I not always naturally super nice, so I have to constantly remind myself to be nicer to people and make it almost my mission to go out of my way to be kind to others. And when others are mean to me, I try hard to be kind back to them, because you have no idea what they may be going through. As long as I am thinking about it, I'm find I am a lot nicer and by constantly thinking about it, I am actively training myself to become a better, more kind person :)
