I drive LA every other day, and I average 75-80 most the time

Where and when?

Brandon, be sure you can earn enough to live in one of the nations most expensive cities. If you move here with no job you'll burn through your savings quickly. You need a minimum of $4000/month net take home to live anywhere in sd county at a LOWER middle class level. Everything here from food to gasoline to rent to electricity is much higher the the national average. The unemployment rate is high. Construction and carpentry jobs are not plentiful. As others have mentioned, sd is much more of an ocean/bay place then a rock/mountain place.

There are a huge number of homeless, beggars and people sleeping in their vehicles in San Diego. They don't need competition for scarce low cost housing, parking places and social resources. Yes when it comes to housing it is about money.

Don't compete with the homeless? What an argument.

"SoCal traffic is every bit as bad as rumored."

As a born & raised So Cal native, that's very true.

If you get stuck in it.

It's all about learning the daily/weekly patterns, and finding travel routes & timing that avoids the worst places at the worst times.

That's the crux, though- So Cal is a big place, and there are a lot of micro-patterns to learn. And even with careful planning, the oddball accident sometimes throws everything out the window.

Besides careful planning, a good smart phone traffic app is quite helpful, as are a few radio stations that do regular traffic reports. Have a Plan B in mind, &/or be ready to create one on the fly if necessary.
