I grew up by Del Mar College. To be honest, its not the best area to live in. Homes are cheap though.

Check out the C.C. sticky thread for links to information about crime in the different parts of town, including this crime map. You can filter out specific types of crimes, for example selecting only assaults will highlight the most violent neighborhoods.

Del Mar College area is not too good. However, about a mile away you get to the Louisiana/Alameda area which is pretty nice.

It depends on what you mean by "good." You could buy or rent an inexpensive house in that area and have quick access to Del Mar, the Bayfront and downtown. But you'd have to be pretty careful about property crimes and although you'd most likely have good neighbors, you might feel uncomfortable walking around outside at night. If you look slightly to the east and south of that area you might feel a little safer.

I probably will.I just found a nice rental on Craigs list and I was wondering why everyone had fortresses built around their yards. I am actually looking for a good rental in the Flour Bluff area.
