San Diego is great for visiting. If I had no choice but to move there, I wouldn't complain too much, but at the same time, I wouldn't be happy.

Thank you for being the the first person to understand that (and post about it). Therefore LA is younger, and of course, more popular.

Los Angeles is not more popular than San Diego due to its age. There are other, more significant factors.

I love L.A. but don't need to disparage other places to try to try to prop up my own city. It ain't London, Paris, Berlin, New York or Hong Kong, but I've been to all of those, as well as worked on the family farm in Nebraska, and have a pretty good idea what makes a place exceedingly livable, and still interesting. When I need a little more somepin' somepin' in my life- I just go there for a visit and grab it
i totally agree

The two aren't really alike except that they are both close to each other and in Southern California. San Diego gets praise for its beaches and beautiful weather, but there are down sides. It's very expensive and the job market is severely lacking. There are more retail and minimum wage/low paying jobs than high paying jobs so it gets difficult to find anything affordable without moving to the hot inland Christian Conservative parts of the county. The military does indeed have a large influence in San Diego County. The local television and radio stations constantly worship the military. Many local businesses want everyone to "support our troops". We have elected politicians like Duncan Hunter Jr that were in the military themselves who go on the news and say stupid things about bombing other countries and anti-Muslim/immigrant/gay rhetoric. They continue being elected despite this clearly ignorant thinking. This backwards thinking comes from a lot of the military and other transplants who have moved here from the South and Midwest. The universities like SDSU and UCSD are very liberal places. The inner city areas like downtown, Hillcrest, North Park, and City Heights as well as the South Bay cities of Chula Vista and National City are also liberal spots. These pockets of San Diego have turned the county blue the last two presidential elections. Despite this there is a conservative feeling in the area and even the mayor is a Republican. In a lot of ways San Diego is overrated and this is coming from a native of the area.
Where is the Christian conservative parts of California? That's where I want to be!!!!

Basically anywhere inland besides urban Sacramento. East County San Diego. San Gabriel Valley. The desert (besides Palm Springs because it's all gays). Central Valley.

There are a lot of suburbs of Sacramento that are like that too. Probably at least half of them.
