Surfing, sun, yoga, health, shopping, old cars, music, farmers markets, beach days, bicycles, and bare feet. if any of these apply to you, then you're in the right city. I lived in hb for 12 years and move back here and there because that's where my family still is. the prices of living are god awful, but sometimes you can find a steal right in the heart of where you want to be. Ive noticed over the years the crime has gotten worse, to the points of riots downtown. a lot of out-of -towners just ruin things for everyone else. every year was the HB US open, concerts, surfing, food, fun. and riots broke out and just ruined it to the point i think they banned a lot of events from the open because of it. its a tourist trap during the summer. the beaches are always packed. but locals know the best way to get there is on 2 wheels, not 4. you see everyone on their bikes, all the time, even buying groceries. its sunny all the stinking time, it barely rains in hb, if it does, its not rain, its "drizzle". and it lasts for about 20 minutes. If we do get a good hard rain, its evaporated the next day. the food biz is always changing, tons of new places open and close and open and close, so never a dull moment there. usually the good places stick around, i think i started noticing fro yo places going up like Starbucks. but when you live in HB, you start to get stuck, i feel. you know all the places, people, restaurants. which is fine for some people. but i feel like there's no culture. unless you count surfing as a culture. but its close to LA close to SD, in both directions. its a good middle ground. good place to be a kid. you make friends easily, the schools are great. my moms side of the family went through my high school along with my dads, and us kids. if you head back down beach blvd towards the 405, beware of street racers and speeding people. accidents have been on the rise due to people's stupidity. they keep expanding downtown. i no longer go down there because of the crowds and sucky parking. but the farmers market nights are a lot of fun. i think there's a mall going up now? goodness, it doesn't look how i remember it. but to each it's own. its a good vacay spot for a bit. and an all around ok place to live and raise kids. but you have to have a pretty good income to afford a house out here. even 1 bedroom apartments start at $1200. but you can always find a diamond in the rough if you look hard enough.
