My 71 year old mom, myself (43), my friend and her 16 year old daughter are all moving to CA in the next few months. We were set on San Luis Obispo b/c it has reasonable rental prices, good air quality, low crime rates, it is horse country, community oriented, by the ocean, smaller in population, low earthquake risk and has not too ostentatious a population of people.

Here's the rub though...My friend's daughter LIVES for her All Star cheer squad. We need to find a community (hopefully that lies within an hour-or-so drive) to a good squad. Is it possible to find a community that has the characteristics of SLO but closer to LA?

And just some other facts: jobs are not of issue, rental prices are DEFINITELY an issue, San Diego is not an option and no cheering for a school is not an option either (these all star squads are competition teams doing dangerous lifts, tumbling and gymnastics within a tight team setting).

Thanks so much for any help you can give. Even if it is recommending other towns/areas you believe could be like SLO and have nothing to do w/cheer. I welcome your feedback.

Maybe if you told us which cities have this type of squad, we could recommend places to live nearby? LA is a big county, with a lot of traffic, so our answers will differ based on where these squads are located.

As for towns that are like San Luis Obispo, I lived up in that area for a year and if you want what San Luis Obispo has to offer, for San Luis Obispo prices, you'll have to move up there. Personally I love San Juan Capistrano, but it's in Orange County, so it probably wouldn't fit your "not too ostentatious a population of people" preference. I also love Riverside and Redlands, but they're not close to the ocean. And I love Encinitias and Leucadia and Fallbrook and Bonsall - but they're in San Diego, which you say is not an option. We have lots of GREAT places to live in this part of Southern California - but none of them are quite like San Luis Obispo.
