Though for swim training he plans to stay in Gainesville, his home of the past 10 years, Lochte loves Los Angeles enough that he's planning on buying a house there. "I love it out there," he says. "Everything's just really relaxed and chill." It may be "chill," but Los Angeles is no Gainesville for someone who needs limited distractions, so Lochte won't be living in California full-time. "I think I'd be a little distracted," he admits. "There'd be something to do all the time." As of now, the plan is to split his time, especially if he decides to train for the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro. "I'm going to go back and forth throughout the month," he says, "[but] I definitely want to move out there."
