Relocating from Rose City to Southern California 

Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses as you leave Portland and head to Los Angeles. While Portland has been a wonderful place to call home, you’re ready for something new. What excites you the most about living in L.A.? The abundant sunshine? What about the chance of bumping into your favorite celebrity? There’s so much to look forward to in Southern California! Check out some fun details about L.A., and learn how U-Pack® can help move you there. 

Rain, Rain, Go Away! 

As a Portlander, you likely never leave the house without a rain jacket in tow. After all, the city gets an average of 43 inches of rain per year. But it’s time to trade that umbrella in for some sunblock! Los Angeles is a sunny city with 17 inches (or less) of rain annually. Enjoy comfortable year-round weather with winter lows rarely dipping below 50 degrees. It’s always a good beach day in Los Angeles.   

Food Trucks 

Food trucks in Portland are all the rage. They fix the tastiest cuisines and are super accessible. Worried you’ll miss your favorite trucks? Don’t be. The L.A. area has more than 400 food carts, serving dishes to satisfy every taste bud. A few local favorites include BatterFish, Crispy Cuban, Prince of Venice and Leo’s Tacos. 

The Great Outdoors 

Portland offers incredible outdoor experiences. But nothing beats exploring the great unknown on a sunny-Californian day. Here are a few options: 

  • Hike the famous Mount Hollywood trail. While it’s a popular route for tourists, if you’re new to the city, it’s a must. You’ll get a perfect view of the Hollywood sign, so take a camera. 
  • Head to Sunset Point Beach for a fun day of surfing or paddle boarding. The waves are slow and smooth, so it’s an ideal location for beginners. 
  • Biking isn’t the best way to get around in L.A. because of the traffic. But, it’s a great activity for fitness and sightseeing. Check out Ballona Creek Bike Path and Shoreline Pedestrian Bikepath. Both offer outstanding views and relaxing rides.
