I have a friend who recently moved from Seal Beach (Short sale) to Los Alamitos (Farquhar st./Los Alamitos Blvd. near Little Cottonwood Park). He pays $1,400.00 rent for a 2 bedroom in a spacious apartment. Seal Beach is more Sand/Surf, while Los Alamitos is more Barrio, but money is money.

Welcome to the area. Blue water, white sand and friendly beach communities. Jeeping is sure good though.

have you looked at or heard of the south bay, manhattan beach, hermosa beach, redondo beach, el segundo, torrance? can be a little more expensive closer you are to the beach, but the best place to live in LA IMO. i do not like LA outside of the southbay (honestly can't stand LA LOL)

is south of LAX and north of San Pedro

also search west side rentals, but you have to pay for their services but its reliable

Is Alamitos Heights in Long Beach a good area? And we're trying to stay East/Southeast of San Pedro and South of the 405 because a majority of the members live in that area.

Looks like a great area to me. I googled 'Alamitos Heights' and I am looking at 363 Ultimo Avenue, Long Beach, California - this street (at least) looks legit.

Seal Beach / Sunset Beach just south of LB used to have reasonable rents and the beaches have waves.

I lived in the Long Beach/San Pedro area for about 20 years. You do not want to be anywhere in downtown Pedro. There are some nice townhouses on Westmont between Gaffey and Western. They usually have some for rent and they have garages which is hard to find in most beach towns. Alamitos Heights is good too depending on how long you want to drive. Torrance would also have what you are looking for. Good luck with the move!

Not eVen on "the hill"? We're still looking and have decided Huntington Beach is just too far of a commute. We're sticking to the long beach area and if we don't find anything in the next week we're going to call up a rental Realtor to help us out.

Not sure if you mind, but if you don't do you all mind keeping an eye out for rentals when you're driving around?

Found a sweet 2 story house/duplex in a quiet "upscale" neighborhood in Bixby Knolls (right next to Virginia Country Club or something like that). Best part is it has a huge 2 car garage!!! 15/20 minutes away from work and about 20 minutes from downtown. Oh and public transportation is great out here!

Bixby is cool and the base is right down at the end of the 710. Just a quick shot in the am and your at muster.

Bixby knolls is a nice place! congrats on the find. I used to drive there for lunch while working at Long Beach airport.

But that 710/405 intersection produces some of the worst traffic I have ever seen. All those container trucks going down to Long beach harbor on the 710. You'll see what i mean!

True that haha... it's funny though how you have to enter the federal correctional facility to get onto the coast guard base lol.

Thanx and I definitely know what you mean about those trucks and the 710 lol..
Already experienced that a few times haha. The nice thing about where I'm located is as soon as I get off the 710 onto the 405 I'm the first exit... basically I'm not really on the 405 just the exit/merge ramp.

Where are the goods places to eat in Bixby Knolls?

when living in SoCal, remember the old saying, "never drive on the 405 at 4:05".

I used to get the lunch specials at Sushi West next to trader joes

oh and check out Handy's for really good meats

Sorry, I moved out of cali a few years ago so I'm not a part of the jeep scene there. I'm sure there are plenty of jeepers though, and a few miles away are tons of trails up in the Mountains. Just stay in the OHV areas or they'll give you an illegal offloading ticket.

Oh, since you're in san pedro, go check out all the seafood vendors out by the harbor. Fresh dungeness crabs and shrimp sautéed mexican style. Then afterwards you can drive up to the Korean Peace bell and enjoy the view from top of the hill.

I saw where Wrangler Forum is running Gold Mountain (I believe). Gold Mountain is a great trail and isn't extreme. I used to run that trail in my Ford Ranger that I fixed up for keeping up with Jeeps. Your only must-have will be an oil pan skidplate. Without one, you run the risk of puncturing yours. I saw once how a bar of soap and JB Weld helped a friend out when she punctured hers.
