I don't mean to answer for sweetclimber, but one explanation is that s/he is a transplant from a northern state. Many of these people who hate snow, cold, and/or winter will move to the most god-awful climates in the US and feel they are in paradise simply because there is no snow/cold/winter in their new town. I know, I used to live in Miami. Drop into the Florida forum and you'll find plenty of examples!

Yes, I am serious, it may be fine for some, but it is too cool and dry in my opinion and the ocean is too cold to swim in due to the way the ocean circulates there, no offense.

No offense taken. I wish more people shared your opinion of San Diego so it could get cheaper. I find the water to be fine in the summer and wore a wet suit the rest of the year.

There are alot of god-awful COLD climates in the north also. Some states even reching -40 degrees up there. So I kinda understand why they would move to some of the miserably HOT places that they do.

None of the aformentioned cities appeal to me. I really think this "Sunbelt" business is a misleading term also. As if it never snows or gets cold in Georgia, lol. It sure as heck does!

I think also, that the "Sunbelt" is being overcrowded and overrun with things. Id much rather find a place untouched, such as Idaho perhaps.
