Any thoughts on Manhattan beach or hermosa beach for a single 29 Male - have the option of moving out west and San Diego and LA are on my mind. Love being outdoors (road biking, running, would love to pickup surfing & volleyball), enjoy nice restaurants, meeting new people, etc. I won’t know anyone in either city so hopefully it’s not impossible to make friends 😬

2 bedroom for 2600 in either spot feels pretty hard. 2 bedroom in Marina Del Rey is 5300 for me.

Dammmn! That’s my mortgage down near El Segundo!

Manhattan Beach is for older folks and families. Hermosa skews younger. You can find studios and 1 bd within a few blocks of the beach for under 2500, but they'll be old and small. I recommend looking in north redondo. It's cheaper, you'll get larger units, and it's less of a hassle to get elsewhere in LA. Otherwise endless stop signs and stoplights will shorten your lifespan by years.

Very accurate description. That drive off the freeways is long a painful. However living that close to the beach is a lifestyle that sounds like OP could do. Hermosa is a bit grungy though.

I would be looking for rent to be around 2 - 2,600.

Damn that’s expensive - I would only need a 1 bedroom

2000-2500 for a 2bd is pretty common in North redondo

I’ve got a nice 2/2 in Marina del Rey for $3700. I really like LA but would take SD over LA anyday

Thanks for the feedback SM1. Any reasons why you like SD better. I do like encinitas and Carlsbad but those are older crowds - I would rather be away from downtown in either city.

I lived in North Park for years. Much prefer it to LA. If you're into water sports, OB or PB crowds are more friendly and welcoming than their equivalents in LA. Would not live in North County or downtown. Easy to be 10min drive away in North Park and accessible to everywhere. North County to SD traffic can be an hour or more.

San Diego's draw for me:
More morally conservative community due to latinx and military
Proximity to MX for weekend or day trips
Use of TJ airport for cheap MX flights
>165 breweries (as of 2017)
Tacos
Gorgeous mountains
Hiking and outdoor activities (needed to compensate for all the tacos and beer)
Women are as hot as in LA but less pretentious and lower maintenence
Craft liquor scene

If you can find a decent place within your budget, don’t hesitate with choosing Manhattan, Hermosa or South Redondo. You’ll love the vibe.
