Default Why You Want to Live Near the Ocean

This graphic from the National Weather Service tells you exactly why you want to live by the ocean and not too far inland. El Cajon is only 12 miles away from downtown. But it's also ten degrees hotter, and that's the difference between a nice day and a hot one!

I would prefer 73 and clear skies any day in Rancho Bernardo than the cold marine layer here in La Jolla. Especially if you have a pool and solar heating...

I pick cooler air and sea breeze. That's why we're moving to the beach!

Give me May Gray and June Gloom over inland heat any day. That and a 5-minute drive or bike ride to the beach to surf.

Well, it works both ways - - the inland has spectacular days in February-April when the coast is all bundled up. We've had situations where our friends in PB come to visit us (still a San Diego zip code) wearing hoodies and long pants and we're in shorts with zinc oxidie on the nose. It's funny that you need a weather report to drive from Lemon Grove/Spring Valley/El Cajon to go to Fiesta Island/La Jolla/Pacific Beach when the trip takes only 20 minutes!

So far only replies from people that live in the greater SD region...because to an outsider that has never been, they are probably wondering WTF this post is about. lol

Big Bear Lake- 64/69/71
San Diego- 69/71/70
O'Side- 66/69/68

Guess that is that is the Southern California version of the "lake effect" keeping temps about on par with the ocean in Big Bear.

Unless you have lived both (all) microclimates I cant see anything wrong with living in San Diego period. Each has their own pro/con and they are all pretty awesome

Agreed. That's why I live near the ocean. I loathe heat.

I wouldn't want to be too far inland. It's amazing just how a few miles can make a difference. I know we've posted this on other threads before but there can be a big difference from even going from Carmel Valley/Del Mar over to Rancho Bernardo or Poway. A few times I've left my house and it's been 8 or 9 degrees hotter passing I-15 into Poway.

I do enjoy avoiding the marine layer as we get mostly sunny skies even when it's cloudy in La Jolla or other areas.
