Same Old City, Brand New Perspective

Here's the scenario - you've been living in your city for a few years and although you love it - the people, the architecture, the culture, the vibe - you are itching for a change and don't want to leave your beloved town. Here's how to get some brand new perspective without leaving your city.Consider moving to a new neighborhood. A friend of ours recently moved downtown after three years of beach-side dwelling and feels like he "moved to a new city". He was ready and able to financially move and it really has inspired him again in Los Angeles. Although just a few miles from his old place, his new neighborhood offers new culture, people, easier access to other parts of LA and more. Even the sunsets feel different in his new neighborhood - all good things. If you are feeling a bit restless and in need of some serious change, consider looking around your city for a new place to hang your hat and gain an entirely new city experience in the process.
