The funny thing is the unemployment rate is 5% which isn't that bad, people could find work there. What about Santa Maria? That's a fairly large city itself!

The answer is lack of job availability.

The unemployment rate takes into account people already living and working there, NOT the ability of people who live elsewhere to move there and find jobs. That has everything to do with the industries/companies/organizations in that area and the skill sets of the people looking for jobs.

Santa Maria has commuter traffic connecting to Santa Barbara, though probably not too bad, and Watsonville has traffic relating to Santa Cruz commuters.

The only affordable "beach towns" in California are those that are located around the Salton Sea, and I'll certainly name all of them!

Mecca, Oasis, North Shore, Desert Shores, Salton Sea Beach, Salton City, and Bombay Beach!

You're welcome.
