    Seattle vs San Diego????

    Advertisements
    My boyfriend and I are debating if both offers are available which choice would be best. We are both Floridians so the temp thing scares me slightly but Seattle looks like an awesome place to live. If anyone has lived in both that would be awesome to get your input. If not any kind of information or advice would be great.

    Thanks,
    Amberly

    I would choose San Diego hands down, but I am a CA native so I guess I am a little biased. I just love it here.

    I vote San Diego!

    I think SD is beautiful and I love the heat. I live in Seattle--it's beautiful, a nice city, a great "personality" and there are tons of fun things to do.

    But the rain and cold...oh the cold and rain. Somedays you feel like you should commute by boat. It is currently 50 degrees and raining on June 4th. (unusual yes, but weird weather happens around here a lot and every year people complain about the weather because it's not "normal".....which after almost 10 years I've figured out there is no normal. )

    Well that's global warming for you I think it is the personality of the city that really makes Seattle seem so appealing. Plus the amazing shows that always seem to play there and nowhere even remotely near my state. Thanks for you advice. I am leaning more toward San Diego...he is the one pushing for Seattle.

    Where did you live in Michigan? I guess the weather wasn't really as hard for you to adjust to

    I grew up in the northern lower peninsula but lived in sw mi after college. The weather here is great compared to mi. I saw snow just 6 times last year. Most days during the winter were 30-40. The coldest is got overnight was mid 20's and that was just a few times. Whereas in mi below zero and 20's are common winter temps.

    You need to talk to del. She lives in seattle but her db was in sd, so she knows her way around down there.
