First neighborhood I lived in after moving from Minnesota! It is an absolutely beautiful area! There are trees lining a majority of the streets, the neighborhoods are safe and filled with beautiful homes and condominiums. It is in a great location and easy to get to Poway, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Mountain area, Rancho Bernardo etc.

This area is pretty great... I mean there's so much to do! You can go to the beach, there's so many beautiful malls to hit, and there's just everything - everywhere. San Diego is cool because the landscape changes every 20 miles in each and every direction you head. I think it's very pretty, and a fun place to be. Plus, most of the people are so super friendly and outgoing.

But it has its downsides. Like (of course in California), mostly everyone is a horrible driver. There can be traffic, but it is not nearly as bad as LA - so I don't really mind. But, I honestly couldn't even count how many times someone has carelessly almost hit me in the 5 months that I've lived here. Also, even though I was told that its 80 degrees year round here many times, it's totally NOT. So, be prepared for solid 60 degree weather at times.

Other than that San Diego is awesome!
In the area that I live in, I haven't heard of crime at all. Different parts of San Diego are going to have different crime ratings... but I haven't really heard of crime here being as bad as crime in LA. I rarely see police around. I'll see them maybe a few times a month, but I've talked to a couple police officers and they seem pretty nice.
