No, not the San Gabriel Valley. Palm Springs is comprised of gays and grays....not that there is anything wrong with that. But a bit more diverse than your post suggested.

Yeah, sure there are some. Azusa Pacific University has about 9,000 students but the S.G. Valley has approx. 1.5 million residents.

Not all of the SGV, but the east side moreso. I'm talking San Dimas, Glendora, Pomona, La Verne, etc. It's a sorta known thing, but not that strongly. But I have yet to meet a liberal from the area that will ever move back. I'm sure it's not as bad as other places in the country, but compared to the Basin, it's much more Christian and conservative. Pasadena is a whole different story though.

Over-exaggeration with the gays. C'mon. You really think I think Palm Springs is ALL gay It just has a pretty big gay vibe to it, and even a lot of the retirees there are pretty open and liberal.

True. I just didn't want to mean the whole Sacramento area. Most people I know from Folsom and Roseville and that area are quite liberal, and there seems to be a pretty high population of gays there from my experiences. But I didn't want to say Sacramento and have people think I mean everywhere in the region.

Unless you are an "artist" and/or deeply into an "alternative" lifestyle, San Diego is so far ahead of L.A. it is a joke. Everyone I know in L.A. would prefer to live in San Diego- the biggest problem with SD is the lack of high paying jobs- so they are stuck in LA. But they are married with children types. The only positive of LA is the high paying jobs. Otherwise, it is a place to avoid. I live in SD and I visit NYC more often than LA. I lived in LA when I was young and although there were lots and lots of attractive and easily obtainable women (trying to think of a nice way to say easy), the place just always creeped me out a bit- plastic surgery, poor people with fancy cars trying to show off, creepy rich old dudes at clubs. I'm always irritated when I have to drive through the blight that is LA when I'm heading up to somewhere decent like Santa Barbara or the Bay Area. I get why unattached younger people want to live in a place more vibrant than SD- but why LA? DC, NYC, and even SF are preferable. Once you grow up and settle down, LA is a place to avoid like the plague.

I love San Diego, but there is really no competition: LA wins. San Diego is just too limited.
