I'm a media artist (animation/illustration) and I know that San Diego may be a better bet for me work-wise, but what does Hawaii have to offer an artist? Also we are in our mid-twenties, laid-back with no kids, and are originally southerners from Louisiana. I'm just trying to figure out what place would be the best for us. I know for sure that I'll probably be happy in either place weather-wise; I HATE Seattle weather (too cold and gray). We would be stationed in Hawaii or San Diego, Calif. for 3 years. I'd appreciate any comments/advice that would help us decide which place would suit us the best. Thanks!
well you know that kind of low pressure wind you get in biloxi??.
the inland areas of hawaii are just like that.
compared to lousiana san diego is a busy busy place.
little slower in hawaii but they dont like white people a whole lot there.
and food is pretty expensive.
both san diego and hawaii are pretty places. people are very very rude in san diego.
all my family is from lousiana. i go to mississippi a lot because of 2 uncles there.

its like this.
if you want prosperity and good weather come to california.
if you want good manners go to mississippi
in mississippi the people are real real nice and the weather is lousy
in california its exactly the opposite.

I'd say HI, you can always go to SD later. Hawaii may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was stationed there in the 90's (Marines) and it was awesome! Just remember to keep an open mind and accept the locals and their customs and they will accept you too.

We are military. We lived in San Diego twice - once for 3 years and another time for 2. We also lived in Maryland, Florida and Virginia. I thought that there was no place better until we moved here 3 years ago. I'd say Hawaii hands down! Unfortunately, we are now moving to Texas. Moving is getting really old!
