The past few days, the weather here has been about same/same, so any Coloradans not in SD aren't missing anything but the ocean.

i lived in colorado for 9 years (colorado springs). dont get me wrong its beautiful in the mountains and i love the epic snowboarding/hiking. but san diego is incredible, def my favorite city in the US. the laid back surfer lifestyle(comparable to the ski towns in CO), the hot surfer chicks, snowbunnies dont even compare!! the the beautiful vistas and weather year round, the sunsets, the cool progresive thinking-people everyhwere, so much going on all the time you can never be bored, the warm humid summer nights cruising the boardwalk, the beautiful canyons/mountains/desert scenery nearby.. its such a great place to be young and in the moment. and the ocean is kind of amazing, the best beaches in CA for sure. with the dramatic cliffs and sea caves and crystal clear coves in la jolla, and its very clean. it makes me feel so refeshed and alive, and in my opinon rivals the beauty of the rockies anyday. its nothing like LA, that place sucks.. plus i way prefer a humid 75 with a cool fresh seabreeze than a dry 75, my skin feels great and i can keep a tan. to each their own tho.. I seriously see so many Colorado plates in San Diego tho, literally like 10 a day at least just driving around.. everyone says a ton of Californians are in Colorado but around here it seems to be the opposite lol

And how much is that ocean costing you? I'm guessing somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 large for a tar paper shanty and 11.4% of your personal income.

For me, the beach is quite possibly the most boring place on the face of the planet. You can cover damn near everything there is to do at the beach in a day or two tops. I don't know how people can spend a week or two having a "beach vacation." It would drive me nuts.

Where in San Diego could you possibly rent an apartment like that 5 minutes from the beach? Unbelievable!

lol I'm 21, I live in a nice one bedroom apartment a 5 minute walk from the beach and I pay $800 a month. The beach is boring if you don't do anything when you go to it. I get to surf everyday and don't have to drive over 2 hours each way to the mountains and pay $500 for a ski pass like I used to in Colorado, it almost wasn't worth it. Gas is maybe 20 cents more than in colorado, and alot of things like produce are way fresher and cheaper. Cali is still really affordable for young people without kids and a family. Not really much more than I'd pay in Colorado in a nice area.. And there's so much more to do here than just the beach

I live in pacific beach now. I'll admit I got lucky with that deal but you can find them. I used to rent a room in a big house with 4 other people in La Jolla, one of the nicest neighborhoods in San Diego, for $750 a month. There are bomb deals out there

Many of us greenies live part time , vacation and own property in Southern California, especially South OC;, check out the Balboa pennisula in Newport Beach. That is ground zero for Colorado plates and Colorado cycling team jerseys. I run into friends from Denver, Boulder, Aspen on the streets, stores, and beaches routinely. A month ago I ran into a friend of mine who I know from a Littleton dog park near Woods Cove..both our dogs played together on the beach...saw him again a week ago here. FYI I live out there part time, but will be soon moving permanently. Ran into three people I knew from Colorado last March between UCSD and La Jolla bluffs. Many of us Greenies have lived in California and visa versa...surfing and snowboarding especially create a huge population exchange between the two states. If you are into sufing, and in OC, South Bay or Malibu head to Jacks, Costa Azul, and Becker for top gear. This last spring winter has been freaking crazy warm out in Southern Cal. Polar vortex, what's that? Remember Dec., January? Hot!!!!

The warm ocean temps are probably due to a strong El Nino that's setting up. If that's the case, we'll all be paying for it this winter (CO and CA). I lived through the 97/98 El Nino in Orange County when it rained endlessly for 3 months and houses slid off hillsides. Denver gets its heaviest snows in El Nino years.

I love SoCal, but the thrill of the beach eventually wears off. Just like the thrill of seeing mountains for people from non mountainous areas.
