I am looking for that lovely small town in southern California for wintering from Jan-June. If there was a way to put Ojai, CA somewhere inland between Orange County and North San Diego County, that would be the spot for me. I'd really like to be close to San Diego but inland as I want to avoid the cold, foggy mornings. I'm considering Borrego Springs but it's a bit isolated yes? I'm looking for a place that has a poplulation of less than 20,000 people. Housing is not an issue nor are schools. I'll be advertising on Craigslist for a room to rent wherever I choose. Again, summer heat is not an issue as I'm looking for someplace to winter from Jan-early June. Thanks everyone!

cold,foggy mornings in SD?
huh.
we don't get them all that regularly-except during june gloom and a spattering here and there are other times. SD inland just a little would give you no cold,foggy mornings-ie,poway,ramona,parts of escondido,etc. though i think the population is higher than 20k in all of them?

Fallbrook comes to mind for you. That's about all I got. good luck!

The warmest afternoon highs in winter are found near the Wild Animal Park between Escondido and Ramona SAN PASQUAL ANIMAL PARK, CALIFORNIA - Climate Summary. Mornings, however, will be cooler than they would be near the coast. Inland areas get warmer because they have a higher amplitude of daily fluctuation, but the days starts out at a lower low temperature away from the coast.

The Marines own a good chunk of the real estate between OC and SD North County so there aren't many more communities than those already mentioned. Most of it is just suburban sprawl -- certainly nothing cute like Ojai. I would say San Clemente, Del Mar, Carlsbad and Encinitas are your best bets for cost-is-no-issue snowbirding in SoCal. They're all on the coast, but that shouldn't be a problem until May.

Not sure if the Coachella Valley fits the bill for you, but we are between OC and SD and a lot of people come here for our gorgeous winters. No fog here either.

I live in the Gird Valley area of Fallbrook. We get the morning fog which works its way in from the ocean via the San Luis Rey River Valley. Have lived in dozens of places in California and this is the best weather I've ever found. Prices are really good right now. You can get something that needs updating on the Fallbrook golf course for under $400,000 right now.

Um ... I think the OP said he/she did not want morning fog.
