Description

Brand new, updated for 2014! First Books, publisher of the bestselling Newcomer’s Handbook® relocation series, is excited to announce publication of the sixth 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 398-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?
  • Each community section in the Neighborhoods chapter now features a photosample of local housing in the area. Get an idea of what to expect before exploring neighborhoods for yourself.
  • A new section of Helpful Apps has been added to the Getting Settled chapter, offering even more ways to get connected in the area.
