My cousins are living down in San Diego right now, in PB. They used to live in South OC (Laguna Beach) but moved to SD around 2003 or 2004. They say they like it way better than OC.

18 Months now.
This place is awesome. I moved down here from Salt Lake City (yawn).

Yes this place is more expensive. Yes I could be living in a home in Salt Lake for the rent I pay here. But I came here to live in paradise, and paradise is what Im living in. There are things to do, and the people are awesome.

Just a little over a year now living in East Chula Vista, but wife is Navy and there now moving us back to the East Coast (Bethesda, Maryland) in August.
Not looking forward to moving back to the DC area though I grew up there and although it was nice (or at least nicer) when I grew up there. I left there in 1997 because of the crime and I lived in Maryland and worked in DC which is full of crime. San Diego is one of the safest places I've ever lived , besides one little town in Florida called Vero Beach.

We are having our second little girl who will be born here in San Diego in June. So we'll always have that memory of San Diego if we don't make it back here. We'll see , I do wish to make this area our permanent home one day.

We love living here in San Diego , especially the Eastlake area of Chula Vista and the people here are great !!!!

I'm from La Mesa and am moving to NoVA next month. In terms of people, culture and shopping, Northern VA reminds me of an East Coast version of Orange County, not Newport but lots of Indians, Asians, South Americans in Middle upper Middle class techie or Gov't jobs; its more conservative than MD and has newer housing stock than the rest of the East Coast. The Tysons Corner area reminds me of Tustin. I know the commutes are a BEAST but you may want to try NoVA if you can bear it. Good Luck!-leighland

Thanks Leighland for the advice, but were going to give Olney, MD a try it will be close to my wifes work in Bethesda. I would prefer to live in VA myself but the commute is horrible to Bethesda and I'm looking at the shortest route as possible for my wife ,but also a SAFE neighborhood as well and I think Olney will offer that. My wife is a Southern gal and has never ever driven in winter weather so thats the one reason we want to be fairly close to work and or close to metro.

How long have I live in SD?

22 years starting the first week of June. Wow, that's a long time by SD standards.
