PB and downtown both have lots of nightlife. downtown is upscale, restaurants and clubs. PB is more beach bars and college kids.

Default Downtown!

PB is not more than 15 minutes by car from downtown and very easily reachable! You should definitely consider downtown. Little Italy area is cool, as well as the Harbor part or Marina district. If you'd love to be right in the middle of the ambiance, consider Gaslamp too.

Wow, if you can afford 4k/month on rent you probably need to live in La Jolla. The people and culture would probably be a better fit, not to mention less "riff-raff" go through La Jolla than PB. I personally don't like either area much at all. Have you thought of downtown or Little Italy? There's a lot going on there, lots of professionals and singles, tons of hangouts, and some really awesome high and low-rise options within your budget.

There are some nicer sections in PB.

Try the Crown Point section, which is on the Mission Bay side of PB.

See this Google map:

Crown Point Drive

The homes and condos here are more upscale.

You can get a nice Bay front condo in a very nice modern building with a huge deck and swimming pool.

There is a great paved path which runs along the bay for riding bikes, skating, jogging etc.

Plus the Bay has a nice sandy beach area for getting a tan, volleyball, swimming, etc.

And the beach at Mission Beach / Pacific Beach is very close.

Definitely check into this area. It may be perfect for you.

You can park your car, and ride a bike along this path to see all the condos that are available.

There are lots of potential places with Bay front views, and the view of the Bay is absolutely beautiful.

There are tons of nice areas around PB, but the OP doesn't seem interested in them. He wants oceanfront. He's also never even been to San Diego.

I don't get the general obsession with PB. I find it to be trashy and douchebag central. I much prefer the more urban nieghborhood quarters of the city; South Park, North Park, Normal Heights, Banker's Hill, Hillcrest, Ocean Beach. Those areas have lots of nightlife, funky shopping, exotic cusine restaurants, and closer to downtown (if you want to go clubbing).
