I'll be moving to Southern CA next summer and I'm trying to decide where to end up. I'll have employment opportunities in Newport Beach, Irvine, Rancho Cucamonga, Temecula, Carlsbad, San Diego, and Chula Vista. So all of those local areas are options.

Ideally I'd like someplace with an easy commute, not too congested, inexpensive, safe, with access to outdoors activities.

I know this is quite a range so I'm calling on you fine Southern Californians to help me out.

Thanks!

For the same money, Temecula would be the best choice. It's safe and cheap. The downside is that, if you lose your job in Temecula, it'll be hard to find a new one in the same area.

Most others on your list range from expensive to very expensive. Newport Beach, Irvine and Carlsbad are nice places to live, but they should only be considered if your income will go into six figures.

I would say that Rancho Cucamonga and Temecula will fit you best. They are safe, very close to outdoors, nice cities, clean, relatively inexpensive.
Irvine and Newport will be really expensive. Not too sure about SD/Carlsbad.

What is your housing budget? What are your preferences on weather?

Those factors will drive your decision more than anything else.
