There seems to be fewer of these people in SD than OC/LA. I'm talking about mid to late 20s to early 30s young professionals. Also the same age group for tech people.

Is there a particular place where a greater segment of this demographic lives in the county? How about where you might run into them on a daily basis?

Mid to late 20s employed tech people is almost non existent.
Anyone I know in tech sure is not in their 20's. Most of my counterparts and their subordinates are in their 30s+

That has been pretty close to my experience thus far.

Young Upwardly Mobiles are spread all over the county. The most exposure I have witnessed is in the Downtown area and immediate Balboa Park neighborhoods. Areas like South Park, North Park, Hillcrest, Bankers Hill has one of the most dynamic demographics in the county.

Suburbs are scattered, PB ....young, but professional is questionable. The wealthier coastal areas, they either rent a box or live at home with mom and dad.

Not true where I work. We have a bunch of young employees here (defense contractor in Rancho Bernardo). I don't know where they live, though.

Gotcha - I've never understood the tech people label before. Are these the same type of people who hang out at PF Changs and Cafe Japengo in UTC? Del Mar might have them, too....En Fuego, L'Auberge and The Plaza? Although the more I think about it, that might be more of the pretentious pharma/medical rep crowd who like to talk about themselves. I know a Del Mar couple who fit the bill, and all of their friends are the same way. I hope they don't read this forum. LOL

Yes, definitely Japengo, En Fuego, but most of those people are in their 30's, very few twentysomething high-income earners in San Diego.
