Paradise Has Its Price

Don't we know already? "Life in the City of Angels remains far from affordable," writes Forbes in its latest America's Most Overpriced Cities -- with the L.A. metro topping the list. We may be priced out of the million-dollar tear-downs, and livie in nondescript dingbats with cottage cheese ceilings for a price that would get us a stately mansion in other, less desirable areas, but we "get to enjoy balmy evenings and sunny days at the beach," and to sleep with the lullaby of the ocean surf. Living all year round in a vacation spot people spend thousands of dollars to visit is worth other sacrifices.
