Just looking for some military housing advice. My husband and I will be moving to San Diego in early November. He's going to be stationed at 32nd.

I've kinda narrowed it down to a few neighborhoods based on location and proximity to base, cost, and wait list. But would like some personal feedback of the general areas and homes. which is best? Are they relatively safe, family friendly (no schools needed, but weve got a baby on the way)? How are the surrounding areas? Traffic? We're hoping for a commute under 25 minutes and want to pocket the extra BAH which is why we picked these...

Park Summit in Hillcrest
Terrace View Villas in Fairmont Park?
Howard Gilmore in La Mesa
Home Terrace in City Heights
Beech Street Knolls in South Park?

If you're thinking of living on base, you can check out the Lincoln Military Housing website. Lincoln Military Housing.

Yes I have looked at Lincoln's website. That's how i got the info and names about the specific housing complexes. But they dont give you a lot of information regarding the general neighborhoods the housing is located in. Hell, it raves about paradise hills and I've heard to stay away from there. I'm more interested in getting info about the civilian areas surrounding the military housing. Like, are la Mesa, city heights, fairmont, south park and hillcrest decent and safe places to live? How bad is traffic around those areas?

Here's a potentially useful thread. Notice that it was originated in 2008 so the information won't necessarily be correct now, but it'll give you a feel for some of the neighborhoods.
