Los Angeles sees nearly 50 million tourists per year visit for its sun-kissed beaches, entertaining downtown, stunning scenery and liberal lifestyle. With so many visitors returning year after year, you have to ask yourself: what draws them back? Los Angeles has developed into one of the most important global cities, instantly recognisable and with high-demand real estate, it will see significant expansion in the next few years. With Propeterra, you too can move to this beacon of liberal, global modernity. To find out what drives people to Los Angeles and why you should consider moving too, check out the points below!




California is blessed with a varied climate. The Rocky Mountains, the Pacific breeze, the cool shade of Yosemite National Park are all on your doorstep in LA. Whilst you can find interesting meteorological varieties in the state, Los Angeles itself remains warm throughout the year. Its paradisiacal climate is a significant factor in a lifestyle, unimpeded by drab, grey weather, you will find yourself more refreshed every day. The Mediterranean climate makes LA the perfect place for spacious patios, long evenings and fun with your little ones at the beach.

Cultural Diversity

Los Angeles, a Spanish name for the city, meaning ‘The City of Angels’ is named so after its largely Hispanic influence from nearby neighbours and historical settlers, Mexico. Rich, colourful Latin American culture fills LA with vibrancy from the South, whilst across the Pacific, Asian migrants have brought their own cultures to create a cradle of cross-cultural expression and harmony. This is best exemplified in the cuisines available, from fresh pacific sashimi to tangy ceviche. In recent years, more European immigrants have added to the melting pot of cultures that gives LA a truly modern metropolitan vivacity. The contribution of culture to the city’s food scene brings us to our next point:


Foodie Paradise

LA’s rich cultural diversity has benefitted the city as a whole, not least its gastronomy. The city’s historic culturally-homogenous neighbourhoods still house some of the most authentic cuisine outside of their native lands. Whether you fancy Korean barbecue, Japanese sashimi, European haute-cuisine or tacos and cerveza, there is something for every palate. You could live the rest of your life eating at different LA restaurants every night and not visit the same one twice such are the gastronomic options. But, we all know we have a favourite spot to go. Perhaps you like the global dining groups like The Ivy or BOA Steakhouse - naturally, LA has both. For coffees, pastries, doughnuts, you name it, LA is the place to find the hottest food trends around.

Cultural Hub

Home to some of the world’s most prestigious galleries, Los Angeles features the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Getty Centre, the Broad Museum, Natural History Museum, LA County Museum of Art, California Science Centre and many more. The city has long been a beacon to aspiring and established artists alike for its progressive community of intellectuals and creatives that have helped build the city to what it is today. Whether you have a penchant for any particular style, be it modern, contemporary, Renaissance, Los Angeles will keep you entertained and cultured.
