Encinitas is one great town, let me tell you. However, correct me if I am wrong, but Encinitas doesn't have a movie theater other than the La Paloma Theater. Isn't that right? I tend to like independent/foreign films, and the only place you get those are down in Hillcrest(awesome community) or at La Jolla Village(wonderful area, but a bit pretentious). Wish Encinitas had a movie theater like La Jolla Village for movies. I love many of the cultural aspects of La Jolla, such as the philharmonic, and the ballet, but I love the feel of Encinitas, from the beautiful Botanical Gardens, to the cool art shops and studios, to the classic Lou's Record Shop, it all has the classic California beach feel, which is VERY hard to find. I also get a kick out of seeing people drive the classic cars like Things and Woodie's around town. I guess taking the best elements from La Jolla and Encinitas would be the ideal beach town.

It is a fact that the nearest movie mega-plex is a few miles away in either La Costa or San Marcos.

Since I'm going to be a local in probably 3 years, I think I could give my @0.02.

If I could live anywhere in San Diego county, it would probably be Carlsbad! Specifically, Aviara, the gulf course community. It's so freaking beautiful and everything is landscaped to the tee. Being a Floridian, you know I love me some green grass and landscaping. But Aviara is like the supreme of all. Everything is very TOP NOTCH from the trees to the grass to the houses. And it looks so fit and put together with the mountains and the suburban style neighborhood. Paradise I tell you.

I love our neighbourhood. We are in UC. We picked it because it is very central and an easy commute for DHs work (or pretty much anywhere in the city), it is quiet and contains most of our needs. I loved Bird Rock when we first came here, but it is a pain to get in and out. Encinitas is very cute but a bit out of the way for us. Perhaps the east side of La jolla...? or the top of the ridge in Point Loma? I should imagine we would stay here and just upgrade.

Depends, could we not work too? If we didn't have a commute to consider my answer might be different.

Either way it would be coastal, no desire to live any further inland (I went out to Santaluz this summer and it was too warm for us). The weather is fantastic by us, cool, no need for air con, but we just miss the marine layer except first thing in the morning (which is perfect for walking dogs and keeping it cool at night in summer).

After living in Oceanside for over 20years, I recently moved to Fallbrook and wish I had done it years ago. Growing up in SoCal (LA, OC), I had grown used to the whole suburban thing, living in Fallbrook is a whole new world. Small town, still has morals and values, 25mph up Main St., feels like 1960. Everyone is polite, country atmosphere and Fallbrook is away from the other cities so we don't get the bleed over BS. It also has a wide variety of classes, from poor to extremely rich & famous, but yet no snobbery. I used to go to bed to the sounds of sirens and now its just the hoot owl in the barn next door...freaking love it.

Right where I currently live, Cardiff. I'd live on a different street with a better view but I wouldn't want to live in another neighborhood. There is always stuff going on and you are close to what I consider the best beaches and surfing in San Diego, which is what I live here for.

La Jolla or Del Mar if I had millions to buy ocean front view property. Lots of cute bistros and cafes and art galleries.

I would vote Carlsbad too. We live in Aviara now and love it but are moving to the village. We wanted to be in a very walkable beach town with the most shops, restaurants and energy as possible. We like Encinitas too but feel Carlsbad Village offered more shops/restaurants/beach access in closer proximity so we chose that area.

Encinitas felt more sleepy (most similar to Kauai which is where we moved here from). I love how the train runs through the beach towns. Makes is it so easy to get to downtown SD. Our kids go a Spanish immersion charter school so district doesn't matter as long as we are in SD.

I would probably be totally content in any of these beach towns: Carlsbad obviously, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Cardiff.

Right where I am, Point Loma. Look to my east, downtown high rises. Look to my west, ocean. Easy access to the 5, near OLT for Amtrak trips. Like 8 groceries in a 2 mile radius, Orangetheory gym, Crossfit Gym, airport....man this place is underrated.
