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).
