Product Description

Brand new, updated for 2008! First Books, publisher of the bestselling Newcomer’s Handbook® relocation series, is excited to announce publication of the fifth edition of the Newcomer’s Handbook® for Moving to and Living in Los Angeles: Including Santa Monica, Pasadena, Orange County, and the San Fernando Valley.

This 384-page volume will quickly orient newcomers to the history, culture, and lifestyle of the Southland. Highlights include:

  • Local Quirks & Lingo, in the Introduction, offers essentials for living here; unsurprisingly, many points are related to driving and parking. How does a “red flag day” alert affect parking? Does “going over the hill” have something to do with unavailability of plastic surgery?
  • An expanded Orange County neighborhoods section now profiles Irvine, Newport Beach, Tustin, Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, Westminster, Fountain Valley, Yorba Linda, and Fullerton.
  • The nuts and bolts of “sustainability” are presented in a brand-new chapter, Green Living, which discusses green remodeling, energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, lanscaping, locally grown and organic food, green money, greener transportation, alternative fuels, and green resources.
