"Convenient location, but not much night life"

This major road is lined with apartment complexes, a Starbucks, hotels and a few chain restaurants. It leads into a shopping center past the 56 Freeway. It's easy top hop on the 56 and take a quick drive to Del Mar and it's beaches. The only negative is that the night life isn't really happening in this part of San Diego. There aren't that many cool clubs in this part of town.

"An Urban Lifestyle"

I love my place. There are palm trees and lots of flowers and green plants right out the front door of my garden apartment. I am close to San Diego State University where I attend graduate school. I have never hit traffic too bad and I work all the way out on Point Loma. My apartment is roomy and not too expensive. For anyone unfamiliar with the area, I would recommend choosing this neighborhood if you are comfortable with a very urban landscape. It's a borderline area that is nice, but I would consider it average, quite normal actually. It's just south of the wealth of Kensington and the hills overlooking Mission Valley, the hipness of Normal Heights, and the family homes of Talmadge. There's a a few rougher areas around, more to the south and pretty small at that.

"Sunny San Diego: the best US city to live in"

Not much to say about this city with beautiful weather all year round.
Great intellectual and artistic scene.
Some of the best beaches in the northern continent.
Many landmarks (Coronado, Balboa Park, Mount Soledad, Old Town).
Great sports scene.
Great city!
