If you’ve ever looked for an apartment in L.A., you probably know that people there always tend to recommend that you use Westside Rentals to find one.
We’re not sure why, since eventually most people just use their mother-in-law’s sister’s son’s password to Craigslist and do their apartment hunting there. Hey, why break such a beautiful and ancient tradition?
True Angelenos know better than paying for a gym membership they'll never use because there's no parking near the gym! Especially since there are so many 100% free alternatives around.
From going up (and down, but mostly up) the Culver City Stairs to Surfing at El Porto or doing yoga in Grand Park – the possibilities are numerous. Just put on your workout clothes and start breaking a sweat!
A Remnant of Pre-GPS Times
Once upon a time, the Angelenos of Yore didn't have GPS devices and had to use an actual paper map to get around. Some of them, for some reason, still have them. It was collected in an atlas called the Thomas Guide and some drivers still have it in their cars for safekeeping.
You know, there used to be a time when Waze and Google Maps were nothing but strange words no one would understand. People actually needed atlases and maps to know where to go! Especially in a huge city like L.A. which pretty much makes driving a car a must.
Not Book People
L.A. locals are abundant in hobbies: from surfing and yoga to biking, hiking, and brunching. (Yes, brunching is a legit L.A. hobby.) Some of them even go to museums and watch movies, believe it or not!
But the one thing you probably won't catch an Angeleno doing is… reading a book. Sorry, they're just not into that kind of stuff, ok? They are far too busy preparing for their improv class. Besides, They'll just watch the movie when it comes out.
The City of Flip Flops
Locals of L.A. will wear flip-flops anywhere. And we mean ANYWHERE. Walking around L.A., you're bound to spot numerous flip-flops on the tanned feet of most people walking down the street. It's so common, it's almost a dress code.
Other places might consider wearing flip-flops outside of the beach area to be strange or even rude, but not Angelenos. It's hot out, and feet need ventilation. What other explanation do you need?
