I know people tend to get married and have kids earlier in the midwest and especially the south, but even in my hometown (Cincinnati), being single in your late 20s or early 30s isn't seen as strange. In Los Angeles, it would definitely be strange to be married with kids at that age!
Same here - in my circles, the "baby boom" happened to "us" (not including me yet) when "we" were in our early 30s, not before. (Educated, busy, career type people. I think those factors matter MUCH more than location.)
