Need some advice: What is better for a couple in their early 50s looking for an investment property (small house or condo) to later live in - beach community (Grover, Pismo, Morro or the like) or college town (SLO). We now live in southern Utah which is a little too small and conservative - plus we worry it may run out of water in our retirement years. My husband enjoys having the beach nearly. I like sunny days, mild weather and low humidity. We do need access to an airport and half-decent job market. Husband is a computer consultant and I work in sales/marketing.

central coastal CA isnt sunny all the time. mild or cold a lot of the year and i think you can expect it to be overcast. that said, slo isnt bad, santa barbara isnt bad, santa cruz isnt too bad if you're looking at college towns. you still have plenty of options either way

SLO will give you the more consistent sunny days. Avila Beach is the "sunniest" beach community.
