Why General Hospital Star Steve Burton Moved His Family Back To LA
Steve Burton shares about his family having the time of their lives now that they are back in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago, Burton moved his family to his hometown, Nashville, in what he thought was “for good.” Now that they relocated to LA again, did the General Hospital star make the right decision?
Steve Burton Moves His Family To LA
In an interview with Soaps In Depth, Burton shared that he wanted his children to experience the kind of life he grew up with in Nashville. He got to spend Halloween, football and Christmas seasons there with his wife Sheree and their kids, 15-year-old Makena, 12-year-old Jack, and 4-year-old Brooklyn. However, the weather has been harsh that they experience extreme cold and snow storms. It came to a point that they felt it’s time to go.
Aside from the weather, another big reason for the move is Burton’s work. Commuting to and from work made it difficult for him to be together with his family most of the time.

“It became a situation where I wasn’t with my family enough. And the traveling was tough. It wasn’t sustainable. It was a lot of wasted time on the plane. Being back at GH, it was more conducive for my family that we be here so we could be together,” Burton shared.
Now, he feels like they’ve made the right decision to return to California. “We’re loving it,” he said. “It’s amazing how many doors have opened up since we’ve been out here now. Everything is just better. We’re having the times of our lives!”
