Culver City - The Good Life

I enjoyed living in Culver City, there are many positives to living in this area of California. There are great recreational areas, such as biking routes that go on for several miles. There are also scenic parks scattered around the Culver City area and the neighborhood is an acceptable place to live. The weather in California is remarkably nice for the entire year. One of the negatives about living in Culver City is the horrific traffic congestion during rush hours. Culver City is considered a great neighborhood to reside in on the west coast.

Culver City rests close to the beach, as well as the Los Angeles International Airport. The best areas in Culver City are the popular attractions and restaurants available to enjoy, and several great schools for young children or teenagers to attend during the school year. I personally enjoyed visiting the beach and living in Culver City, there are a lot of great things to do in the summertime.
