CstarU: The corner of Torrey Pines and Prospect eh? Rough neighborhood. I don't know how you'll muscle out the cross-dresser that's usually there though...
That is true in fact that there is a bum in La Jolla. It just seems so...out of place. She/he is usually by the Vons at the end of Torrey Pines road or at the bank/parking structure on the corner of Girard and Fay
Gocaps16: Escondido is actually pretty developed now. It's not that much of a desert...and housing is getting pretty expensive there.
Derek H: Well you definitely wont find hicks and farms here. Well actually there are some classy horse-raising farms but they are mostly quaint rather than sprawling. In La Jolla, Del Mar, and pretty much all the way up the coast there are some pretty nice houses that are right on the beach.
Just don't go anywhere south of I-94 and you should be fine. And don't move to LA!!!
