I'm thinking Dodge Neon...am I right?

I think to do it right you need a Ford F150, at least 15 years old.

Before my parents got a condo out that way, I used to rarely traverse east of the 405.

I barely know what half the cities in the Valley are.

what the fuck, oakland is one of the best cities in california.

I've lived in California my whole life and have spent quite a bit of time in most of the cities in this thread and even with all their bad attributes, Fresno, Stockton, Modesto, Lodi etc aren't even close to being as bad as Bakersfield.

I have little with experience the IE so my pick is Bakersfield.

Next time you guys visit Glendale, take the scenic route via Compton, Bellflower, Norwalk, La Puente, Duarte, and Temple City.
Report back.

Nothing particularly wrong with those cities, they look like every other city in LA county. Temple City in particular is affluent enough not to suffer from any real urban problems.

It used to be this way. But now all the kids with well-to-do parents think the east-side is hip. Downtown LA is well on its way to full gentrification, and the surrounding barrios will soon be next. I aint mad; many neighborhoods could use an injection of stupid hipster money spending.

Yeah. I don't know what it is about Glendale. I think its the Galleria that I get dragged to every once in a while. Having to fight for parking spots there (I usually just go to the Americana to park nowadays). I hate the parking garage.

The layout of the streets bugs me for some reason too.

dude ... shopping at the Americana, never going east of the 405 ... you realize you're not really living in los angeles, right? you might as well be spending your time at disneyland.

Let us pause for a moment and consider the merits (or lack thereof) of Vacaville. Literally "Cow Town" in Spanish. The outlets provide some relief from the bleak surroundings, but there is only so much Izod that one can buy at discount prices....

well, if you want to go on literal translations, i would say that Los Banos probably wins. and probably by many other measures as well.

Literal is one approach; the other is for the suspension of disbelief in order to self-aggrandize so popular here in CA., in which case Mecca, "the gateway to the Salton Sea!!!", probably wins.
