Ahh..because I'm just a lowly nurse? Please. You would be surprised just how much money I can make with my profession. Probably more than you.

You don't know my financial situation....

And in no way is an audi equivalent to an infinity or a cadilac. Please.

Anyway, happy to see some others agreed with me on this one.

You are so correct. I have no idea what your financial situation is. What I do know is the range in pay that we offer our travel nurses. I know what the range in pay for our in house nurses. I even know what we are paying our management staff. On top of that I know what I am getting paid and I prefer my income. But that is just for one heathcare system with a couple hospitals, 9 unit clinic system, and ownership in several health care business operations. I also know that the nurses that we have on staff have some cute looking little cars made by BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Inffinity, and even Audi but they don't compare to my car, my plane, or my boat. I also know that our nurses have nice lifestyles. Good for them. Audi does make some great cars. But nothing that they make excites me too much. A good friend had a A8 and it is a fine car. Just nothing to get excited about.

One thing about Santa Barbara is even when you make good money its very hard to make it there,unless you want to rent for the rest of your life. The city does have alot to offer but its not worth it to me, its just to expensive. For the pay of a travel nurse or any nurse for that matter they earn every nickel its a hard job and not appreciated enough.
Thank you to all of the nurses.

I dont know if I can agree with all this and the OP. I raised 3 kids by myself. Being a single parent eliminated any chance of working a second job. I lived and worked in San Luis Obispo. Which isnt a whole lot less expensive than Santa Barbara. We managed to buy a home and live fairly comfortable on my OR nurse salary. Did we have everything that we WANTED? No. But we could afford everything we NEEDED. Sometimes I think people find financial difficulties no matter where they are because they want everything NOW. If the Op is saying that she doesnt find Santa Barbara worth sacrificing for then maybe that is so. But if a person earning an average California nurses salary is happy wearing KMart clothes instead of Nordstroms, can make do with a $30 bottle of perfume instead a $130 one, I think they can make it in the Santa Barbara area. Of coarse some people wont be satisfied no matter where they are. Because they want everything right now. And with no sacrifice on thier part to get it. But what the hell do I know? I couldn"t tell you the first thing about an Audi.

What I don't understand is how the poster, who is from Alabama, can so easily find Santa Barbara & Malibu to be so "ugly". Something isn't right with this picture

Saw on the news this evening that ol' Tony had been out pacing up and down State Street in an effort to "get the pulse" of the people. Got an earful, I'm sure.

Default Overrated...yes. Ok to visit.

I agree. SB is very overrated.

I think the reason that locals don't see it as overated is because they don't realize what their town is made out to be to the rest of the world. AND they don't get out enough to really make comparisons. That is typical of ALL places. SB is a place to visit for a short time.
