It was very laid-back by the beach and uptight downtown. I would rather not live here because of the constant sunny and 75 type weather as well as the people. In my experience, the people are quite rude until they get to know you and they are horrible drivers. I now live in Colorado and like it so much better. San Diego may be great for some, but it is definitely not the city for me.
I did not hear about many major crimes occurring within my immediate area. I frequently saw police roaming the streets, keeping watch on the community.
I love living in the city of San Diego. For example, I briefly moved to Paris, France to study abroad for my freshman year of college. After moving, I realized not only how beautiful Point Loma and San Diego are, but also noticed the sense of camaraderie and community that San Diego offers. This is partly owing to the mix between Mexican and Spanish culture as well as the genuinely loving attitudes that fill San Diego.
