Hi everyone

I came across a sentence. "My son was tired of his boring life, so he decided to move from LA."

Is it necessary to add "to (a place)"? like say, "My son was tired of his boring life, so he decided to move from LA to another city."
or replace "move from" with "leave"--> "My son was tired of his boring life, so he decided to leave LA."

Or the original sentence is good, I don't need to change anything.

Thank you.

    Your sentence is fine. Perhaps listeners already know where your son lives now. Perhaps you are going to tell them where he lives in the next sentence. Perhaps it doesn't matter where he lives. There seems little point in adding "to another city" if you aren't going to say which city he moved to.

    "Leave" is just as good as "move from". You can use either.
