    San Diego

    I could potentially be getting a job offer in San Diego from my current employer. I'm currently in Iowa. Have always lived in Iowa. Married with 2 kids. What do I need to know about San Diego, and maybe even the state of California itself, to help make my decision if I do receive an offer to relocate?

    I just went down to San Diego for a 5 day conference. I've been there once previously. I personally loved it, the weather was great and the beaches were awesome. Downtown San Diego has a very "small town in a big city" feel to it (only way I can describe it, Portland OR had that feeling about 10-15 years ago and it's gone now).

    I unfortunately don't know about housing costs, crime, cost of living, schools, etc. but just general impressions? My wife and I talked about how we would probably move if her company offered her a job there.

    Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.

    Also, they try to stay classy.

    That's pretty much all you need to know.

    Its the exact same as Iowa you won't even notice the difference.

    Except everything will be much cheaper in San Diego.

    If you can afford it, I'd go there. The biggest drawback is cost. Other than that, sunshine, beach, girls, Mexican food, California, you can't beat it

    holy ****, I just looked up renting a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. Wtf????

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    How much was it? I imagine I'm desensitized to high housing costs because of Seattle.

    anywhere from 2,750/month, to 6,000/month

    I lived in Houston, TX for years. I sold an updated 3/2, 1650 square foot home, fenced in yard, decent area, for $146,000 in 2014. Now I get that nowhere else has housing that cheap really (for a city suburb), and in Minneapolis/St Paul, the same house is roughly $230,000. But in San Diego, that would equate to $500-550,000 for the same home. Cmon..

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Great weather but very expensive. One of the nicest places to live in the US depending on your life style and preferences.
