Maybe it's our local government, maybe it's our excellent schools, maybe it's our police and fire departments who are always there when you need them or our city employees who keep the streets clean and the trees trimmed. Maybe, just maybe it's all of those things and more. According to the Zumper Los Angeles Metro Report this month Culver City ranked as the 5th most expensive city to rent in los Angeles County.
