Youre asking people in the Los Angeles forum if they think LA is better than SD? Wow.

Its not even close. I can only think of two things I like about San Diego - La Costa Resort (which is close to San Diego) and LaDanian Tomlinson. Thats about it.

LA is better in everything. We have a better downtown, better variety of lifestyles, it's more lively, our baseball is better, we have 2 basketball teams, we have better public transportation, better universities, better hospitals, more liberals, more diversity, and I could go on and on. The only SD has is a football team and Coronado Island (but we have Catalina).

I've lived for years in both places. The weather and traffic are slightly better in SD (depends on where you live). LA has more smog and more graffiti. SD's gas prices and home prices are higher. I guess it depends on what type of life you are looking for. I think both cities have lots of offer a variety of lifestyles (families, singles, retired, etc.)

Is this supposed to be a positive aspect of LA?

For someone who is a liberal it would be. That is actually one of the reasons why I prefer L.A. over San Diego. Not to say that San Diego doesn't have liberal areas and people, but overall compared to L.A., San Diego is generally conservative and has the small town mentality, and carries more of the church, family, traditional, etc. values. L.A. seems more of a place where you're free to live your own lifestyle and everyone will let you be. San Diego people tend to be more preachy and judgemental, and being from Georgia (the bible belt), it's like I never left home.

I first came out to San Diego in '97 to try to live, but within the 1st month I was already unimpressed with San Diego. The only reason why I came to San Diego is because I had some friends of the family that lived here. Otherwise I would have went to L.A. I thought that San Diego is boring and generic, while L.A. has more fun, excitement, energy. San Diego has grown a lot in the last 10 years, but it's still no L.A. Other than the traffic getting worse (the only thing that made it become more like L.A., something negative), it's still the slow, boring city where people still want to act like it's a small town, making it difficult for a place with 1.2 million people. The reason why it's difficult is because with everyone moving slow, it causes holdups for everybody. L.A. has been made to accomodate it's millions of residents for at least 40 years. They have plenty of shops, restraunts, services, etc. San Diego still has fewer and further in betweens of a lot of things, so a lot of places are packed with people (in long lines that move very slow as mentioned earlier).

Los Angeles and San Diego are totally different cities. First of all, Los Angeles is a city with a population of four million people and Los Angeles County has a population of over ten million people. Los Angeles is one of three Alpha World Cities in the U.S. (the others being New York and Chicago) hence, it is a city of international influence. Los Angeles' population is very diverse...large groups of people from all over the world live in Los Angeles. I could go on and on about L.A., I suggest consulting a current encylopedia for more info. San Diego is a beautiful resort-type city. The city of San Diego itself has a population of just over one million and the entire metropolitan population is two million or so. San Diego doesn't really have much international influence...the University of California has a campus there and it's an excellent research university and the U.S. Navy's Pacific fleet is based in the city...other than that there isn't much more to the place. Like Jack Sparrow said, it's really like comparing apples to oranges.
