Anyways I love both areas, but I have to smack more Californians around than anyone...next thing DWong is going to tell me that CA has better schools and universities than NY.
Ok, ok, 10x was an inflating it... alot. great schools.com.. do your HW... there are no state to state comparisons - so really it's not much of an argument either way....there are good schools everywhere. Again, greatschools.com tell nothing of how good a school is w/ comparisons to others, just how they rate for the states own test. Guess what though only real national test, the SAT.... and our local SD schools kick those Florida schools you know what

No I won't say that CA has better schools than NYC/NE area, however our public institutions, UCSD, UCI, UCLA and Berkley are the highest anywhere. Almost in that order... Soo.. Shabam!

Poway that is it.

Honestly DWong I don't think you have ever lived in S. Fla. and you seem to carry the CA arrogance of thinking "everything is perfect", when it is not.
OH and no everything isn't perfect in SD:

1. cost of housing.
2. too much taxes
3. ineffective government.
4. number of good jobs

Live in S. Fla.. No, spent alot of time there... Lovely place to visit, but wouldn't want to raise my family there - and even my S. Fla friends say the same.

I apologize, for the 10x better comment, an obvious no no I guess

I just moved back to San Diego from Fort Lauderdale and I can tell you that the crime in South Florida from Palm County to Broward County and Miami-Dade is some of the worst in the Country,

You are wrong Mach50 and Dwong is right if you stay out west in Broward County in some areas it's family neighborhoods but as soon as you leave those white neighborhoods your in the ghetto in South Florida . And South Florida is more ghetto than San Diego 100%

If you want to live in western Broward county you will be closer to the everglades which means hotter and more humidity and gators and bugs
with no ocean breeze and you will have to drive thru Ghetto to get out.
Schools are so Bad in Broward County that they send thier kids to Private schools.

way more poor black people, Hatian's, Jamaican's, African American American. Crackheads,murders,rapes ,guns ,drugs,etc...

here are just some of the dangerous neighborhoods:

Pompano Beach
Fort Lauderdale
Delray Beach
West Palm Beach (Palm County)
Opa Locka
Parts of Davie
West Boca
Riviera Beach
Oakland Park
Deerfield Beech
and many many more
Crackhead Streets in Fort Lauderdale
Broward Blvd.
Sunrise Blvd.
6th ave.
and many many more

The FBI considers Florida to be more Dangerous then California

Most Dangerous States - WalletPop

out of 50 of the most dangerous cities 10 of them are located in Florida

100 most dangerous cities in the USA America states 10 20 50

so the rest of Florida is bad also not just South Florida

I'am not trying to promote this show but you will see the streets of Broward County and see how many bad people live down there
please watch Police women of Broward County and you will see South Florida Crackheads and Crime way more then San Diego.

South Florida is worse than anything in San Diego when it comes to Crime

the quality of life is better in San Diego then South Florida

South Florida is filled New Yorkers and the worst drivers in the country.

if any listens to Mach50 and move from California to South Florida you will be making the biggest mistake of your life.

For Florida; Wellington and Weston are some of the most family friendly areas in the nation.

Schools? Actually I think Florida is 29th and CA is 47th in the nation for public school ranking.
Smartest State 2006-2007

I will agree colleges are better in SoCal...but seriously how many Americans go to UCI? University of China Irvine .

Just a question here, I have a friend who moved from Miami and now has been living in San Diego and works in the Gas Lamp and in terms of cost of living he says it's not as bad as every one says it is. For instance he just bought a 220,000 house with 1400 sq ft not too far outside of downtown on El Cajon Blvd. He said when he rented he had a place for 700/month is south SD country. So what gives? am I missing something??? His household income is around 70K and he said he and his wife are making it no problem. Is he missing something? they don't have kids BTW.

I just did a quick search and found 70 pages of homes for sale in san diego for under 250K and all over 1000 sq ft. So why does every one say you can only buy a house for 600K starting? Some were in shifty areas and others were not.
