Why she loves Los Angeles: The weather is fantastic. You can Rollerblade, bike on the boardwalk and have a day at the beach. Its beautiful scenic mountains are perfect for hiking; the ride up the PCH is stunning; and LA is so close to wine country in Santa Barbara. You can really create a very healthy, active, and relaxing lifestyle here if you choose!
All-around favorite locale: The beaches of Malibu and Santa Monica.
