Just wondering what you consider the end of San Diego Area and the Metro LA begin? is Camp Pendleton the barrier? Everything North of that is LA suburbs and everything south is San Diego Suburbs?

Is Oceanside/Carlsbad really that bad? I hear people from San Diego talk about how bad certin areas are but when you compare Milwaukee to San Diego, Milwaukee is twice as bad so I should be fine right?

Do you mean San Diego and Orange County? Los Angeles doesn't connect with San Diego. Oceanside and Carlsbad are nice areas.

Yeah, if I'm on the other side of C.Pendleton do they considered that the LA suburbs? metro LA?
what is the utc area? Vista?

Is it possible to have a one bedroom for $700 apt in these areas?

The area on the other side of Camp Pendleton is called Orange County. You could call that a suburb of LA, there's no clearly visible border between OC and LA, it's all one big megapolis.
Carlsbad is nice, Oceanside is not so nice, but I've not been to Milwaukee so I can't say if it's worse than where you live.
UTC area is between 5, 805, and 52.
I don't think you can have a one bedroom for $700 anywhere. You could have a room in a house or split a 2-bedroom with a roommate for $700.

Actually LA is about 2 hours north of San Diego. In between LA and San Diego is Orange County which is another area/county. Oceanside is about 40 minutes north of the San Diego border roughly (but not quite in Orange County yet) and Carlsbad is about 20 minutes north of the San Diego border roughly although I would still consider it in the "San Diego area". I'm not too familiar with Oceanside but I can tell you that Carlsbad is a very nice area from what I know. Some of my bosses at work own million dollar homes there and I have yet to see a bad neighborhood in Carlsbad. I would recommend going to sites like rent.com, apartments.com and even Craigslist where you can enter your criteria and have them populate you housing choices if that is what you need.

If you can tell us more specifically what you are looking for, we might be able to give more specific advice. i.e. are you working at Camp Pendleton and need to find an area to live and commute to work? If so, I would NOT recommend UTC or Vista. The commutes will drive you crazy and will not be worth it!

LA and Orange county are considered one region. San Diego is a separate region. Many people live in OC and commute to LA but very few commute from/to OC/LA to San Diego. South OC is considered the southernmost extent of the LA/OC/Ventura megalopolis

Milwaukee: The thing is that the whole LA/OC thing is a pretty touchy subject for people from up there. People in "The OC" definitely don't think of themselves as living in LA, even though pretty much everyone else does. For example, when the baseball team changed its name from the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, there was hell to pay with the OC fans, and LA fans still make fun of it.
Then, LA treats OC (and pretty much the rest of the world) as being red-headed step children who don't deserve to live in LA. Neither one really wants to be the other. The whole thing is lame, but what can I say?

I think when you pass the San Onofre power plants you are getting close. Maybe somewhere between San Clemente and Dana Point
