San Clemente Review - 4/8/2011
First, the big plus of San Clemente is the weather. It is wonderful and most of the time you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. Second, the area has a natural beauty that one expects of Southern California. The beaches are well kept and it is nice to spend the day there.
The negatives have to begin with the high cost of living. Even with the recent home price declines, housing costs are still high as the number of foreclosures and bankruptcies can attest.

In case of accident, the prevailing south-to-southwest winds would place radioactivity at your door.
Especially avoid the Talega subdivision. Most locals dislike the people there. It is understandable. They are Laguna Beach- Newport Beach wannabes who will never come close to making it. They take out second and third mortgages to buy their 16-year Read More

Still a low crime area - 6/16/2008

Great lifestyle, but way too expensive - 8/20/2006
San Clemente is a great city, full of the classic southern California lifestyle that you imagine when listening to a beach boys song.

But you'll pay the price. Prices are out of hand and getting worse. What good is a "paradise" type lifestyle, when you have to kill yourself working so hard to afford Read More
