Moving in August - Suggestions on cities - California or Florida

Jump to last reply

I am 25 and currently live in Missouri. My family is in Tulsa. I am finally ready to move some place much more exciting, and near the ocean. I will be moving in August with my sister (21 in November) and her boyfriend (23), as well as another friend of ours probably (21). I am hoping for suggestions on what cities/neighborhoods to look into.

I am looking for a MUCH warmer climate, somewhere with young single people close to my age, I want to be somewhere pretty safe, hopefully not too expensive although anywhere that has all my criteria will be - but since i will be renting a 2-3 bedroom apt/condo/house split by 3 or 4 people i am hoping that will help, somewhere with a good night life and lots of things to do, would like a beach as close as possible, I don't speak spanish so preferably not somewhere like Miami, but the bigger the city the better (i like meeting new and different kinds of people - bigger the city the better) and we will all be needing to find jobs (my sister currently is a waitress and her bf works at a furniture store, i am a legal assistant at a law office, and the friend is a supervisor at a restaurant in a retirement home, so i know it may be challenging). also, I would like to consider going back to school so maybe a decent college not too far, I'd love decent public transportation or cities where you can walk most places but we all have cars as well and would be willing to drive.

I have narrowed my search through talking to people who have lived in both Florida and California and decided I am pretty sure I would like to go to one of those states. In California I am looking in the San Diego area, possibly Temecula, Pacific Beach, La Jolla etc - i like San Fran and Santa Cruz I hear is amazing but they're too cold for me. LA area isnt much warmer and a lot more crime from what i hear. in Florida I have heard Clearwater, Tampa, Pensacola are all nice. Any pros/cons of those places or suggestions of anywhere else state/city/neighborhood wise for young people moving on a whim would be greatly appreciated!
