Moving to Los Angeles
We must bear in mind that in order to travel to any American city, including Los Angeles, it is necessary to be in possession of a visa for the United States.
Since the so-called green cards are very complicated to obtain, the simplest thing is to obtain a visa through the company we work for if our intention is to move for work reasons.
For more information visit state.gov official page.
Before moving to Los Angeles, we must bear in mind that it is a very expensive city in terms of housing rentals.
In addition, it is not recommended to look for accommodation from Spain, since there are many scams. Keep in mind that many of the flats on offer usually come unfurnished, so if our intention is to stay in the country for a short period of time, it may be much cheaper to look for a room.
To search for a flat, these two websites can be useful craiglist.org and westsiderentals.com
Now, depending on what your preferences are, the best areas to live are:
Beach and leisure area: Santa Monica and Venice Beach, they are also very safe areas.
Urban Center: Downtown

Los Angeles is an extremely large city, however the transportation system is quite poor in the city. The buses connect only the main avenues, and as for the metro, it is organized by colors depending on the route they take.
The green one: makes trips from the South Bay to Norwalk
