I suggest a hostile in Venice Beach, CA, or maybe even on the boardwalk near whatever that cement shit is. At night. Lots of interesting characters, many with well constructed views about the oppression in society.
It really is a freer place where you can do your own thing to survive. And many do. A place you can really kick off your shoes and let the cool damp seaside grass surround your bare feet.
