It certainly isn't the cheapest or least desirable place to live in SoCal. You really have no idea what you're talking about at all. You must be from Iowa or somewhere that has no clue about the area. The only nightmare is people like you spreading false information.

I can’t help it if you posted the same topic in two forums and got called out on it both times.
Maybe you should do more research before making a statement that not only the locals in the state, but those in Atlanta disagreed with.
Or maybe YOU should not try to be a junior moderator and actually read what was posted, without the urgent need to just come on here to "call out" people without anything constructive to offer. I also said people should "consider" IE. I have family in Redlands so I am most certainly not basing it on a "map". SMH

Thanks. I have had 90 minute or more commutes here in Atlanta. Doable but not the most desirable LOL.

Thanks you're correct it's more mid level. I have a Master's degree plus licensing as a substance abuse counselor and a substance abuse evaluator for the Department of Transportation and all their federal employees.

Ok to get this back on topic:

I am early 40's and my daughter is about to go off to college. I am considering if Atlanta is where I want to be long term or if I should move to another major metro area with a mild climate. I have been here in Atlanta almost 20 years and have enjoyed my growth here and like the city. I am considering Houston, Southern California, South Florida, maybe even Phoenix. I know Houston and Phoenix would be comparable to Atlanta as far as cost of living.

How is my post considered being a junior moderator. Stop making uninformed statements and assumptions about things you don’t know much about and you will be fine. It’s fine to ask questions about areas you don’t know about, making statements about areas not so much. Btw maybe the internet isn’t for you. You see, to be easily hurt.

It's fine to disagree but try to provide some constructive feedback as to why as well. I went back to look and you did not provide that.

One thing to consider: if you move, your daughter's school breaks will then be spent in a city in which she knows no one but her parent. Did she grow up in Atlanta?

That's a good point. Yes she grew up here.

El Cajon is about 20 min east of San Diego and about 2 hours from LA when there’s no traffic. Anyone living in El Cajon and trying to commute to LA will regret it.
