      I know what you're thinking, well no I don't really. I have an idea of what you should be thinking, however. This California living isn't for everyone, and not just anyone can stand the lifestyle. Living in Imperial takes away from the idea that most get when they think Hollywood, or San Francisco.

      Housing is great, with so many beautiful places to choose from. I gotta tell you that you will pay an arm and a leg for a nice 4 bedroom home near the Quartz Street area as well as the Stapleton Court area. Thinking long term, it may be very well worth it because these home are magnificent.

      There is plenty to do here for the elderly, not so much for the youth. I know there are other cities and places to go near by, but within the limits there isn't much in terms of excitement. That is okay though because this is a safe place to live and I wouldn't trade it!
