I moved here on Jan 1, 2013 and have loved every minute of it. My wife loves it, my kids love it, and we have found Los Angeles to be an amazing city. We actually live in Burbank, and get the whole “Ohh, you live in the valley” from people quite often. It just makes us smile. The school systems is fantastic, the people here are very friendly, and we can zip around town with very little traffic.
