Hey, I'm from Miami and I'm strongly considering moving to San Diego. I've been out there a few times and loved it. I'm thinking of living in the Mission Valley area. I know it's expensive, kinda like down here...Anyone from San Diego or moving there? I'd appreciate any insight/tips.

I wish ! You need a LOT of money though. I was talking to somebody who moved here from San Diego the other day, he actually said he likes it better here because of how expensive it is in SD, but the climate and scenery are positively unbeatable.

yeah i know the rents are expensive but it's 2 of us so we should be able to do it. But that's what I hear so far...very expensive...not as expensive as NYC but lotsa money nonetheless!

Hmm....

Average wage per job in 2003: $36,358 in Miami-Dade county
Average wage per job in 2003: $39,299 in San Diego county

Plus if I'm not mistaken you don't like Hispanics at all. Ditto that they don't have many black people though, since I know you feel the same way about most non-white, non U.S born people.

Races in San Diego County, California:

* White Non-Hispanic (55.0%)
* Hispanic (26.7%)

And that was in 2000. Sitting on the Mexico border, imagine 2005.

San Diego is a beautiful, beautiful place, probably the best place to live in the country, and South Florida definitely isn't, and I can't dispute that. But I know your so called "reasons" looking at your past posts. We can't even use the "class" excuse, because look at this!

Percentage of residents living in poverty in 2005: 11.0%
San Diego County: 11.0%
(6.1% for White Non-Hispanic residents, 21.3% for Black residents, 19.0% for Hispanic or Latino residents,)

Percentage of residents living in poverty in 2005: 11.1%
Broward County: 11.1%
(7.0% for White Non-Hispanic residents, 20.0% for Black residents, 11.0% for Hispanic or Latino residents,)

To the OP, enjoy San Diego, its really a beautiful, clean, dynamic city with some wonderful career potential.

Oh, and "All Americans are leaving Palm Beach and Broward County"

Look at this!!!!
San Diego Couny
Net international migration: +91,725
Here: +31 per 1000 residents
State: +39 per 1000 residents

Net internal migration: -97,536
Here: -33 per 1000 residents
State: -18 per 1000 residents

Broward County
Net international migration: +82,027
Here: +46 per 1000 residents
State: +30 per 1000 residents

Net internal migration: +36,632
Here: +21 per 1000 residents
State: +59 per 1000 residents

It's true, more immigrants are coming than Americans, but their still coming! Thats a positive internal gain!
Palm Beach County
Net international migration: +41,325
Here: +33 per 1000 residents
State: +30 per 1000 residents

Net internal migration: +90,812
Here: +72 per 1000 residents
State: +59 per 1000 residents

Look ma, more net INTERNAL migration than international!!!

Finding a decent house for a good price is impossible in San Diego.

Where are their jobs, on the Navy base? I thought LA and Orange County was the primary job market in that region.

Yeah I know...seems like everywhere that is desirable to live is expensive anyway. I can't afford a house here - at least not yet - and I won't be able to afford a house right away over there either.

I found that you can find really upscale apartments over there and like 15 min. away from the beach. Whereas in Miami apartments that close to the water (city of Miami, SoBe) are run down.
