Hello all,

I just got back from a trip to San Diego and absolutely fell in love with it, and interested in re-locating there. I am a 24 year old male, graduated from college last year with a BS/MS, and just began working about 6 months ago with a new company. I was born and raised in New York, and returned here to work after attending college in Virginia. I am not a typical New Yorker and would love to move to the West Coast where they are much more laid back and laxed. With all that being said I am seeking help on what neighborhoods/sections of San Diego would be good for me. Below are some requriements that I am looking for:

1) Location where I am surrounded by others my age group (20-40), young professionals, younger families.
2) Located within a reasonable driving distance (30 min. or less) to downtown San Diego during rush hour.
3) Good public school system for possibly when I start raising a family.
4) Low crime rate.
5) Good nightlife, good shopping.
6) Not a high risk area for wildfires.
7) Affordable price for someone that wants to buy a condo/townhome and can afford payments on approx. $60K salary.

some hip funky 'hoods are North Park, Hillcrest, Little Italy, East Village (both downtown) , South Park, Normal Heights. Beach areas to consider would be Pacific Beach (college vibe) & Mission Beach.

Default Best Place to Live in SD

If you are interested in being 10 minutes from Downtown, 5 minutes from the beach, and one minute from the bay.... Check out Pacific Beach. I live in Crown Point. I just bought a house in Point Loma which is similar but PB is more hip and everything is here.

Plus If you want to meet some girls.. Garnet St.... Enough said..
