I have another thread going on locations to live in OC for around 2000 - 2500/mo.


We are talking about maybe sucking it up and beaching it for a year, and just storing all our excess belongings.


What's better for a 31 year old couple with a 9 y.o. kid ?

Newport or Huntington ?

Newport hands down. That kind of rent is the caliber of Newport, not Huntington.

You'd be able to find something on the smaller side in Newport. But do you realize how boring Newport Beach is??? Naturally, it is very beautiful especially on the waterfront but I doubt you'll find anything on the water for that rate.
Its occupied by 90% geriatrics who are too old to even move about. You'd basically be living in an old folks home. I lived on Lido Island for a year and it was stunning and beautiful but I did not manage to meet a single friend or contact in all of that time and had to go elsewhere to connect with people. I found out why: All old people in Newport. Oh, I am exaggerating; I did meet one person who was so high on drugs, the son of wealthy family, roaming outside his million dollar mansion on Lido, offering me coke and an orgy.... Hmm... not my idea of company.

Huntington is a bit better for a younger family with kids than Newport Beach.
