    Talking San Diego from an Arizonan's perspective

    As most of you know, I went up to San Diego a few weeks ago for the weekend. I thought it'd be interesting to compare two cities that are less than 6 hours away but feel like a whole different world.

    Has San Diego ever heard of more than a two lane street?

    Is Starbucks forced to have a billion cafes in San Diego? Every street there is another coffee joint (not just Starbucks)! How much of this black liquid do these people drink?

    I could actually WALK from a place to another place without getting mowed over by a thousand cars!

    Do rollerskates come standard with homes here? Every other person here has on rollerskates and they don't pay attetion to anything!

    These people LOVE condos! I do too but it was a bit much not seeing a single family home!

    Women with fake breasts walking around with their "twins" stuffed in a sports bra.....ok I liked this part.

    The Ocean is gorgeous PERIOD.

    Ok, that's about it. Had a great trip, hopefully will go back soon.

    My only experience with San Diego is the Marine Corps Recruit Depot!
    I was stationed in Tustin, CA later.
    The ocean is fantastic, bike lanes are a blessing. You can keep the CA traffic!

    Re: San Diego from an Arizonan's perspective

    I lived in San Clemente which is about 45mins to an hour north of San Diego so I would go to SD alot. My younger brother is an attorney there now.

    SD is my favorite city on the planet, bar none. I've lived in NJ, Atlanta, Phoenix, San Clemente(Orange County), LA, Miami, Tampa and have visited almost every major city in the US.

    The reason for all the apartments and condos is that housing is some of the most expensive in the country there, not many can afford them. The ones that are somewhat affordable are cookie cutter homes with no yard to speak of and you are so close to your nieghbors you can reach out of a window and touch the side of their house. Even those homes are a half a mil.

    The weather is awesome, the people are laid back beachy type. Most everyone is physically fit and spend alot of time outdoors.

    The only draw back for me is that the water is always cold compared to here in Florida.

    Hopefully one day I can get back there... but until then, I am happy where I am at.

    I was in RTC/NTC San Diego, then later B.E.E. there. We used to watch them run you guys around the airport

    The waves were bigger on the west coast and I took a visit to a "club" called Thad's once while I was out there (but I won't elaborate on that ) Did have a friend get hit by a stingray through the foot in the surf while there in S.D. though.

    Hey Hitmoney, where in SJ? I've been here since '86, used to live about 40 miles west of Philly, but now I'm a transplanted "shoobie" - but I'm in really, really, SOUTH Jersey - about 10 miles south of the DMB in Salem County - farmers, horses, cows and the random chicken...it's nice from a space and congestion point of view, but lousy from a convenience and shopping one.
