If you've lived all over the country, then why not go back to the place you liked best? If you liked SF, go back there.

If you want to live in Laguna Hills because of what you've seen on TV, don't bother.

I've heard Laguna is very pretty. Heard it's kinda artsy & has great shopping. Do you think this is true? Or will I be bored like I am in SB?

We stopped in Santa Barbara for a couple of days once, as part of an itinerary, and I'll admit that we were a bit disappointed. We liked Pismo Beach MUCH better despite it being so small. However, the weather should be ideal, is it not?

You should go visit it before you decide. Being bored is usually more a function of the individual than their surroundings.

"La Tierra Adorada" is really "La Mierda Dorada"? They lied to us about the history and reputation of Santa Barbara! And Julia Child, who loved La Super Rica, had zero taste or culinary sense. Such an ugly, squalid little town is Santa Barbara!

I agree with original post - Santa Barbara is a millionaire's ghetto, and overrun with bums. The natural area is beautiful, but the graffiti and trash are not. Is there even a WalMart in SB? The positives are that it is one of the few popular areas in SoCal that have resisted over development the negative-side to this is called, anti-capitalism. There are more quirky people there than Orange County, and it has more of a liberal feel likely due to the college.

I would move to Laguna Hills in a heartbeat. SF is SB's problems times 10. If given the choice between SF and SB, I would stay in SB. It's not that horrible, but you are right.. it certainly has it's problems.

Dear God,
My prayer is a simple and modest one: just let me have a 2 bedroom in that craphole, Santa Barbara...overlooking the ocean.
Yours,
Snort

Maybe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Also if you don't like the living conditions that you are currently under change them. No one gave Oprah an estate in the area. She did what most do and earned it. If you would be happier in an estate than in a neighborhood then do the same and earn the right to live that way. For me I love the Santa Barbara coast on down to the Malibu area. It is not for everyone least of all a travell nurse.
