Hi Sharon, I'm wondering if you could mention a little more about what you like. Here on this site, they give categories like, beach lover, country lover, or trendy & stylish. As an Executive Development & Life Coach, I've helped a lot of men and women identify their life path to fulfillment. Trendy folks often gravitate to metro areas, and since you said you're more of a village dweller, then perhaps Del Mar, La Jolla, Rancho Sante Fe, or Solana Beach for the more trendy end of the spectrum, and Encinitas, Carlsbad, or Oceanside. If San Diego proper appeals to you, being a little more populated than North County, there's many more options. Economics will be somewhat of a deciding factor. And again, the social milieux you prefer will, too. If Carmel is really your preference, you'll find it more spread out and less like a village, given the number of mall-like shopping areas. If you take a leisurely drive up the coast from La Jolla, you'll find lots of restaurants, shops, and people. If you go inland, there will be fewer. Hope this helps.

SharonK1 Hi Teresa, I really like music, film, the arts, cafes, pubs and any place I can meet and talk with people. I would not say that I'm a country lover or specifically trendy and stylish, but I like the "feel" of Little Italy where I feel a bit safer walking around. I also like being around young and older people. Yes, financial constraints are a consideration as well. There is nothing more exciting that engaging in good conversations and meeting new people. I am part of a few film groups too. I do love the tranquility of where I live but I need to be near other people too.
