If your dream is to move to San Francisco, or Los Angeles, or Denver, these cities may sway you to pick one of them. But there's other reasons too, like cost of living and quality of life.

LOS

With the USA so present in our film, TV and music, exploring anywhere in this vast country can feel like you're in a movie, especially in California. While colour is popping up in the Arts District as Los Angeles unveils a host of impressive murals and paintings on blank facades, and local hipsters and artists hit the latest hot spots in wild costumes and extravagant, luxe nights out, right next door is the square of downtown where LA's homeless population congregate. These social, aesthetic and cultural contrasts can be seen across this diverse city. Another of the city's contrasts is Venice Beach's skate park, a Mecca for teenagers. Around twenty champions constantly challenging each other against a backdrop of wide sandy beaches, palm trees and cycling and jogging paths.

These two cities will likely frame any trip to California. In one corner we have San Francsico, the so-called 'most European American city ', with 870, 000 inhabitants living within the city itself, and 4.7 million within the extended urban area. In the other corner, we have the urban giant with its ever-expanding boundaries, stretching 75 miles along the Pacific and 30 miles wide, with four million inhabitants living in the centre, and almost 19 million in all its neighbourhoods combined. The first, a city that has spawned some of the great causes of the past and present, and which is currently the world's tech hub; the other, sporty, cinematic, showy. Each has its devotees, and its detractors. So which one would you choose, San Francisco or Los Angeles? (Source: www.originaltravel.co.uk)
