Moving To Los Angeles: Where The Locals Go

If you just moved to Los Angeles, you’re probably wondering where the locals like to hang out. LA is a big place with lots of things to do. Here are some places where Angelenos like to gather:

Breakfast Places

Restaurants that serve breakfast are popular with residents of LA. They are a great place to meet up with friends, family, and even bring your dogs if there’s an outdoor patio. They are especially busy during the weekend, so I would recommend going really early in the morning, or avoiding the crowds altogether. That is, unless you don’t mind waiting for an hour before being seated.


People in LA love to go to the beach, especially when it’s a nice hot day. Since the beach is usually fifteen degrees cooler than the surrounding areas, it feels refreshing to hang out on the West Side. If the beach is your thing, make sure you check out Malibu. People also like to rollerblade or bike along the strand.

If you need to rent a beach bicycle, known as a cruiser, there are bike rental shops that rent them along the beach. It usually costs under $10 an hour to rent. Bring cash too, since that’s all they accept.

Coffee Shops

Coffee shops are definitely hotspots for people to hang out. People love to get their triple mocha choco-lattes and sit around for hours watching other people, or attempting to write the next Great American Novel.

The Gym and Yoga

You will also find Angelenos hard at work at the gym or practicing yoga. These activities are great for keeping in shape and socializing with others.

As you can see, there are plenty of places people like to go to in Los Angeles. The places I mentioned above are just some of the popular activities that locals like to do.
