Well, I'm in the desert area of Southern California (Palm Springs area). Frankly I'm hoping to move soon too. I'm not too fond of the summers here anymore, and the job market in my industry is non-existent.
I did live in Irvine, and liked it there. My sister was in San Diego for years, and absolutely loved it. Where are you hoping to go?
I actually either hope to go back home to Oregon, or possibly northern California sometime in the hopefully not too distant future.

I hear you on the stress. I did that once before, and may again, and it's not much fun. But telling yourself "this too shall pass" really does help you get through it, because it really will. Good luck to you.

I am in NY state about 1 1/2 hrs above NYC. I absolutely am miserable here. I am a native Californian Girl and man oh man I need to go back. We moved here becasue my husband was out of work and was offered a job here. Luckily we still own our house in Sacramento. I am originally from the Santa Rosa Area and I so desperatley need to go home.My husband is now out of work and we cannot move until our house is up for lease renewal in December. Every summer we go to Lake Tahoe and that is my renewing spot.I feel refreshed and like I've just had a tune up while I am there. Have you been there? Beautiful . And the best part...You can drive back home and get AWAY from the snow. AAAAAAAAAh California.

Aww poor you... I feel your pain. It is very boring in Upstate NY. Visit NYC whenever you can, you will have plenty of fun

I'm in the process of leaving Los Angeles. I lived in Santa Monica for 5 years and Beverly Hills for 2.
The rental market is finally coming down, some landlords are trying to hold on, but overall, the rental market is good for tenants. Santa Monica was fun at first to be near the beach (my apt was right on the ocean at The Shores) but the homeless numbers were daunting, and the mentally ill among them staggering. I felt as if I was working long after I'd returned home for evening (PhD Psych) as I'd frequently hear some kind of disturbance almost every night.
Haven't been to Monterey is years, Big Sur is always fabulous but quiet.
I think if I came back to Cali, I'd venture further south, like San Clemente, or back north to Mendocino. I haven't been to San Clemente, but am sooo tired of the massive numbers of people in the city, and need a more rural environment.
I get what you mean about the suburbs...couldn't wait to leave the cookie-cutter life of NJ, with all the Biffy's and Buff's.
If you like the symphony, Gustav Dudamel is the new conductor at the LA PHIL, and he is AMAZING!!!!
Definitely catch him this year.
Good luck on your move; I hope you can make it fun/adventure instead of a chore.
Wherever you land, best of luck.
Welcome to your new life.
