Moving to a big new city

Photo by Erda Estremera on Unsplash 5 Essential Tips for Moving to a Big New City Moving to a big city, such as the Los Angeles area or Pasadena can seem daunting. You’ll have to consider living costs, taxes, real estate, making new friends, finding employment, and more. This can be an incredibly stressful, yet also exciting, time of your life. The following tips will help you move to a large new city: 1. Budget for Higher Living Costs  Higher living costs are inevitable when you move to a big city. The world’s greatest cities, such as New York City, London, and Los Angeles, come with endless career opportunities but a hefty price tag. The average cost of living in Los Angeles is $1,073 for one person without rent. That’s significantly more than most of the United States. However, you can budget by using apps like Mint, which allows you to manage your spending all from one account. 2. Look for Big City Attractions You’ll find more attractions in a big city than in a small town. Los Angeles, for example, has some of the best tourist attractions in the United States, including the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Griffith Observatory, and Santa Monica Pier. Visiting the city’s best attractions when you first move can make you feel at home. If you’re a sports fan, Los Angeles has some of the best sporting events. For example, take in a game at the famous Dodgers Stadium. Find great rates for Los Angeles Dodgers tickets online. Some online ticket sellers even offer 360-degree virtual in-seat views. 3. Connect at Social Events  Moving...
