New Orleans, LA

Awww - 10/23/2009
I have never lived in New Orleans but have visited before and absolutely loved it. It saddens me to see the horrible things said about such a beautiful and unique city. Personally, I plan on buying a home there some day. I would hope that its residents would come together as a community and put thier hearts and minds together to achieve thier vision for the city. I know it can be done.

Salem, OR

No Thank You - 10/23/2009
I was born and raised in this city. When I graduated I high tailed it out of the entire state. Oregon is a beautiful state. Salem in my opinion is the armpit of Oregon. Things to know about Salem, Oregon:

- Bad Investment: The real estate actually DEPRECIATES!
- Scary People: There are half way houses which facilitate unusually scroungy looking people who walk down the streets talking to themselves (something I have only witnessed in Salem).
- High Crime: The crime is horrible!
- Weather: It rains ALOT
- Jobs: There are none! Plan on commuting 45 minutes to Portland just to work a part time job at Starbucks.
- In my opinion this town is NOT for people with families, or anyone for that matter.

Honestly, I feel badly for anyone who is still left in the depths of the armpit.

San Diego, CA

Beautiful - 10/23/2009
I lived in San Diego for a few years and loved it. It is a beautiful city with plenty to do. That was back when I was single and in my 20's. This is definitly a city for young people. If you have a family and children, the schools are horrible. I had to move out to the midwest to get the educational programs and attention that my children deserved. It is extremely expensive to live here so I suggest you have a well paying position before you make the move. Also, the job market right now is suffering badly and wages have been cut severely. Other than that, a great place to live. Lots to do, great climate, beautiful skyline, culture, and sense of community in most areas.
