My boyfriend of 5 yrs (whom I live with) has to relocate to Pensacola, FL this December for work, and i might go with him. We both were born and raised in coastal California, we love the beach and surfing. I would like to live in a community as similar as I can get to San Diego, that is near the beach, and where other young professionals live. Any suggestions???

Yikes man! Take the brick off the accelerator. I agree though, people in California are going to know nothing about Pensacola, FL.

San Diego is a beautiful city, which I personally love. However, the beaches in Pensacola/Navarre area are pure white sand, with lots of sand space, and no rocks. I feeled in love with Navarre. Florida has beautiful beaches, but the sand color is beautiful in the panhandle. However, there is very little to do, due to the fact that it is in a hurricane corridor, and temperatures are much lower than other parts of Florida. That area has several military bases. Destin, a town nearby, is upscale and very nice, as well as Niceville. But putting the beaches to the side, the only towns/cities I would recommend are Naples and Sarasota. However, the cost of living in Pensacola is very low, compare to this other two cities. You can get a beautiful house in 1/2 for less than $300K. The Homeoner's Insurance is very high, but taxes, and food are low. Humidity is also high. But the beaches are SUPERB, and the people are extremely nice. No comparison with San Diego's weather, and lifestyle. I hope I have been helpful. I live in NYC, but visit there often, as well as the other town/cities I just mentioned. Good luck,

Actually, I think Miami might be more like San Diego.

But to the original poster, I can give you some input as I have spent time in both Pensacola and San Diego (yes, I'm in the Navy). Pensacola is obviously a much smaller town than San Diego, but they share some similar characteristics such as both being strong military towns and having water/beaches. Best of luck to ya!

Miami is more like LA. SD is more conservative than Miami.

Anyways, to the poster, SD is conservative, but not like North Florida!!!! The beaches in the panhandle are much different. The pure white sand and clear water is very beautiful. Summer water temps are in the 80s. Spring and Fall are nice for going to the beach too. The beaches there lack the cliffs that California has-Florida is very flat. But it is still nice compared to Cali's very mild water temps and marine layer that often lingers around the coast. That said, the water is cold in wintertime in Pensacola-colder than San Diego's water in the winter, and the Gulf has NO waves!

The weather in that area of Florida is not exactly what many would call pleasant. It has a humid subtropical climate- cold winters, hot and humid summers, mild springs and falls. San Diego is mild to warm year-round due to the Mediterranean weather we have. But Pensacola seems nice to live in, with the exception of extreme conservatives. I wish you luck!
