What Bert Has To Say About San Diego-Carlsbad Metro Area

San Diego’s endearing ocean-moderated Southern California climate is hard to beat and enables year-round enjoyment of the area’s many outdoor amenities and activities. The economy has typically been strong and the city is well endowed with arts and recreational amenities. This has drawn the crowds, including retirees, overseas and domestic migrants, and migrants from other parts of California. The cost of living, once a relative bargain for California coastal cities, is no longer low. Commute times have risen and air quality problems have worsened.
