One of the reasons why I decided to move to Tarzana, California is due to the Mediterranean climate.
This type of climate is only found in this part of the United states. One reason is due to the unique topography of the region. Los Angeles has barrier islands that help aid in this climate. When I was picking places to live after graduating from college, I thought LA sounded amazing. I knew I would be able to find a job in LA without many problems, but the cost of living was outrageous. The price on a one bedroom flat was almost three grand a month. I wouldn’t be able to pay off my student loans at that rate. When I found property in Tarzana, I was eager to learn more about the area. I thought the sound of the climate was appealing and I was also intrigued by the number of famous people that are from Tarzana. Jason Derulo, Marc Antony and Lisa Kudrow all grew up in the city of Tarzana. There are tons of famous people still living in the suburban neighborhood. Another great reason to love the west coast is the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana. The legalization of marijuana has led to billions of dollars in revenue for the state. The taxes on legal cannabis are used for city parks, road maintenance, and community events. If you ever consider moving to the west coast, there are a ton of communities right outside of LA. The big city is less than an hour away, and the areas still offer the charm of small town living.
