How to Move with Children to Los Angeles – section 2

In the first section of this article we covered the attractions and advantages associated with moving with your children to Los Angeles. In this section of the article we will covers some of the disadvantages that should be considered before scheduling with your long distance movers.

Los Angeles School System
The educational system in Los Angeles is known to be very good and the city offers some great public schools as well as some excellent private schools. However, a common difficulty is commuting. Your child may have to commute long distances every day to attend a good school, and the lack of an efficient public transportation system may make this a serious issue. If you choose to send your child to a private school, get ready to pay a high price, as education in Los Angeles can be expensive.

The LA Environment
Los Angeles is very crowded, especially on the freeways. Certain parts of the city can be dirty and loud. LA is one of the most polluted cities in the country and it may be dangerous, especially for children who grew up in cleaner environmental conditions. If your child suffers from any allergies, asthma, or other lung conditions, you may want to reconsider any long distance moving to Los Angeles.

Unfortunately, cars do most of the transportation in Los Angeles, so there is always smog in the air and the lack of rain in the summer can prevent the air from getting cleaned from time to time.

Cost of Living
Although LA is not as expensive as New York City, it is no far behind. The price of gas, food, and housing, are all expensive items, compared to many other states and cities in the country. Long distance moving to Los Angeles with children may be even more expensive as you have to sponsor your child’s after school activities, toys, etc.

Climate
Although the weather in Los Angeles can be very beautiful, it may become an issue for some people. This fact is especially true for those who move to Los Angeles from the colder climates. In the summertime, temperatures may rise above the one hundred degrees and is usually very hot and dry.
