Hi guys,

I'm about to graduate from college this month and I'm ready to get the hell out of New York. Too dirty, too crowded, too cold...

Anyways, I would like to move to California, but have no idea where. Some people recommended Santa Cruz or towns near San Diego. I'm looking for warm weather, sunny... I don't mind some cold, brisk spells, but would like the majority of the year to be warm. I am also looking for a town by/near the ocean... I would like to improve my surfing, but I'm not looking for bone crushing waves and rabid locals (too intimidating!). Somewhere with public transportation would be great, and of course opportunities for concerts, museums, opera, dance, clubs, etc. Somewhere with mostly young people and oh, straight boys!

As so far as jobs go, I'm fine with just saving up some money for two or three months worth of living and just going and finding a job. I guess my degree and experience qualifies me for publishing jobs and publicity jobs.

Anyways, please recommend some good spots! Thanks very much!

While the city/county of San Diego would suit your recreational lifestyle, it's got water that's not as bone chilling as up north, some public transport, a good amount of night life, plus a large number of single, eager to please straight boys, (MCRD, North Island NAS, Miramar MCAS, Camp Pendleton, 32nd Street Naval Station) it wouldn't be a good fit with your degree.

The industries around here tend towards defense, telecom, biomed, and boutique hi-tech. If perhaps you have minored in engineering, physics, or life sciences, then your degree might give you a leg up with the advertising agencies in town. If not, I suspect the supply of people who are just generalists with a degree will greatly outweigh the demand.
