Question by Lynn: where would a traditional family live in Los Angeles?
My husband is considering a job at the major medical center there. Where would we look to rent a nice house with a pool where our 3 kids could live with other kids in traditional families?

Valencia for a number of reasons – it has the best schools, the safest area, at the lowest price. Trade offs: it can be a longer commute than some of the other choices, and it gets warmer here than the beach areas in the summer. Folks up here take pride that “this is not LA/SFV” and it is quite “sterile” / no nightlife. It’s all suited to kids/families. The “Newhall Pass” where 5/405/210 come together is a tough stretch of freeway, though it gets a bit of a bad rap – there are worst interchanges out there. You can take the light rail train “Metrolink” straight into downtown LA, and there are commuter buses that go directly there and to a number of job hubs, as well.
