I have read about that VA In Palm Springs. Only reason I look forward to Palm Springs Is the cost of living seems more affordable than the rest. I do not know about the extreme heat and how utilities play a roll in that. My wife is on the TSA waiting list at the hospital and I was emailed for a carrier job with the palm springs post office. I like the scenery in PS with the mountains and palm trees. Temecula post office has contacted me as well along with LA and Chula Vista post office in San Diego. We love the beach now we are 2 hours away from Myrtle Beach and It's not close enough. I figured 1500 would be hard to come by something safe and with good schools in the area in SD and LA. Me and my wife really don't want to get stuck somewhere that is boring and too far from everything that we can't go out and enjoy entertainment and clubs. Temecula seem's like the best fit to raise a kid and live a nice comfortable lifestyle. LA and SD seem more of our liking as far as nightlife, beaches, walkability. Palm Springs is affordable and we can save to buy a house within a year which will be nice. Thanks for the advice everyone.

notostl I will look into areas in east county San Diego as well and tierrasanta area. I have never been to Tierrasanta but La mesa and Hillcrest area seem interesting but I know Hillcrest is not cheap.

There is no VA Hospital in Palm Springs, it's in Loma Linda, 50 miles away. There is a VA Clinic in nearby Palm Desert, however.

Agree that Long Beach and San Diego would be the best on that list, although the neighborhoods of Long Beach vary a lot so make sure you check them out before signing any long-term lease. San Diego has less rollercoastering between its good and bad neighborhoods. I would just be mindful of going too far inland, where it can get a bit sketchier. Since you're a young couple, I would suggest you check out North Park (92104), South Park (92102), and El Cerrito (92115).

We kinda switched places. I moved from So Cal to Asheville NC last fall.

Thanks for the advice I agree with both of you. Long Beach seems a lot like the lifestyle I want to live as well as Sn Diego near North Park and also La mesa within 10 minutes to downtown. North Park is great and in my opinion my favorite city because It's close to Balboa Park Hillcrest Downtown, La mesa and pretty much a good vibe of cultures in the area. Long Beach is my place for LA but like you guys said do my research before renting long term. So at the most I want to rent no more than 8 months before looking into a house. Asheville is very nice, me and wife are looking into stopping by the Biltmore and downtown area fr a weekend befre we go.

Default Moving to Long Beach in 2 months

Pros and cons of living near the beach. The good and bad areas to avoid. We want to stay near the beach in a nice low crime area for under $1200 one bedroom my wife and future son. We have family in San Diego and San Francisco and want to travel to Palm Springs, Vegas, AZ, CO, throughout the year.

South long beach near Naples. Good luck with your $1200 budget.

Thanks guys I look into Naples first time hearing that place. 1200 Is what I will have coming in before I start working at the post office off my Military VA income. The first 3 to 6 months depending on my lease will be huge savings until I find a good area to settle nearby if I like the city or leave and go to San Diego or Vegas.
