Offered a great job but I have to move to San Diego...what can I expect the lifestyle to be?
I was offered a great job that is almost 4 times my salary now but I have to move my family to San Diego and all the things I know about San Diego are the obvious ones such as weather and beautiful scenery. I would love to hear what the cost of living would be vs. Michigan. I would also like to know what the lifestyle is out there. I understand that everyone chooses to live whatever lifestyle they want but I have a 17 month old son and plan on having more kids while I'm there. I don't even know all the questions to ask but if anyone could pass on any advise about San Diego living I would really appreciate it. Thanks for your responses in advance!

Life style is a bit pricey, but San Diego has a very fun, youthful, active, and outgoing environment. I know you would fall in love with it right away, it is so beautiful and the weather is always amazing. I would recommend living in the downtown area for the "social life" if that is your thing.
