I have been looking at California options for a while. Although San Diego is expensive compared to "avg" America, we are looking there because it is the least expensive area in CA that we have found so far that is close to an International Airport. Also, the Many surrounding towns are less expensive than the city of San Diego, especially as you head East, away from the coast. I haven't visited there yet, but that is what I have learned from researching so far, I hope its helpful
