We are moving to SD. Until my wife learns to drive, we are looking to rent a house in an upper-middle class or affluent PEDESTRIAN friendly community. We liked La Jolla when we visited, but don't really know the other neighborhoods. Are there ANY other locations (besides la Jolla) where you can survive without a car, at least for a while? We prefer to be near the beach and near the "tech triangle," but we're prepared to live inland if necessary. Thanks.

Del Mar and downtown Encinitas (west of the 5) could work.

You're only other option would be the UTC area (University Town Center). It's dense with pretty much every store you'll need for the most part. It's not the most pedestrian friendly place but b/c of the density and all of the stores there it is possible to live w/o a car.
