Those two areas, are completely Polar opposites. If you like Urban type lives, SLO, is the place for you to live. If you like a remote rural location, far from Urban Areas, then Eureka is your place to be. Completely different life styles, warm weather area near year around, vs., cold rainy winters, cold foggy summers, etc.

One area has warm weather with usable beaches for recreation, the other has cold beaches and weather.

IMO the Eureka area could make for a very interesting choice. And I mean that in a positive way. The north coast is a dynamic and interesting place-if it's right for you

SLO, white bread. Boring, pleasant and a safe choice. Not a place that the grandkids would be interested in hearing about your experiences there.

Going up to Humboldt for a friend's graduation at HSU. Got the only room left in the area, in Eureka. She said she'll try and pull some strings to get anything else, due to the apparent prevalence of crackheads and speed freaks in Eureka. Said to be the last place anyone up in NorCal would want to end up.

SLO is, among other things, a college town, near the beach and mountains. One can find some sort of excitement in such a place. And Pismo Beach is nearby.

Please use the "search forum" feature to see the MANY MANY POSTS which have addressed your queries in the recent past. Please don't expect us to write long essays on issues you could look up for yourself. Try Craig's List to check out jobs or the Times-Standard classifieds. Many more jobs in the SLO area but far higher housing costs also.

Interesting when people want comparisons between communities that are 500 miles apart and have almost nothing in common.

Siberia's COL is lower, but the beaches offer less than SB's.

One may peruse whether quality vodka trumps quality wine.
