I hope this answer isn't too late... but moving from Ok to LE is such a good transition for you. It isn't like moving to LA! It's much smaller and quieter. A bit of country. Awesome ride up on hywy 74 towards orange county and coastal cities and beach areas. My hubby is from OK as well and he loves it here compare to the larger cities. I'm a local realtor and we bought a house here couple of years ago. We love our home and living here! the lake view from our front porch and upstairs is an added bonus. Close to schools and parks, to include dog park, skate boarding area next to residential park. Very clean, quiet and friendly neighborhood. McVicker canyon is our favorite area! Services are cheaper compare to orange county or san diego cty.
Goodluck on your move!
