Ditto Tom's answer below. However, I live and work in Glendale and it provides all of those things that you mentioned: family oriented, safe, great shopping in town, close to everything. If you are interested in information about real estate in Glendale or the surrounding communities please contact me. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
It all depends on what area of Los Angeles you are looking in. The main areas are South Bay (Carson, Long Beach, etc.), the West Side (West LA, Santa Monica, etc.), the San Fernando Valley (Encino, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, etc.) central LA (outside of Downtown - not recommended) & the San Gabriel Valley (La Puente, West Covina, etc.). If I knew your budget, home size & age requirements, along with a few other pertinent details I could easily recommend an area to you and send you all of the homes matching your wish list as well!
