On base
The 15 freeway (north/south) is very trafficy, 8 (east/west) isn't that bad, and i'm not sure about the 5 (i rarely drive it).

These maps might help

Living in S.D.

There are some condo projects along West Pt. Loma Blvd where I'd bet the rents wouldn't be too bad, as the sale prices are quite low for the area.
Also, there are condos, apartments and small houses in Loma Portal, North of Rosecrans and West of Nimitz - drive in Evergreen from Nimitz and look around. The area is called Tunaville because so many of the tuna fishermen lived there.
Good luck!

Bad thing is the sub base you are up in point loma, lovin' it strong. Thats why I asked a while back which base you where on. You have to run down rosecrans all the way and the base itself is also strung out. It could take you 10-20 min after you exit the freeway. Parking shouldnt be bad since you are a zero, kidding, but that base is tucked away.

Do you know your shift?

Are you on ward room hours?

530-2. Traffic isn't bad really.

7-8 to 4-5. I would spend the money to live in point loma or no further than linda vista mission valley.

I'm not quite all the way down on the peninsula… midway drive somewhere, NRPEO.

I'm actually looking forward to going down there and I like how strong the San Diego crew is too

$2200 is a healthy budget.
I too also lived in Clairemont off Balboa and Genesee Ave. I have nothing negative to say about that area.

Other areas to consider would be the following:
University City (right above Clairemont Mesa but below La Jolla (Triangle)
Mission bay - This area is west of Clairemont Mesa and East of Pacific Beach
Point Loma - IMO is doable if you don't get a house.
North Park - certain areas are great and some have too much going on.
La Mesa - Yes it's nice. The drive might be pushing it.
Ocean Beach - should consider.
Allied Gardens - East of Mission Valley off of Mission Goerge. Quiet. Nice.
By the sounds of it, you'll be taking I-8 to get to Pt. Loma. Food for thought.

Linda Vista is a neighborhood I would stay away from unless it was the outskirts. This part of town is South of Clairemont Mesa, but just South of that is Mission Valley which is central to everything but you won't find a house there. Mostly apartments and condos. Key word "Mostly."
South Park, Encanto, Barrio Logan, Lemon Grove, - Stay Away


Allied Gardens

How does having a truck work out in SD? I'm getting tired of the shit gas mileage… I'm assuming I'll be sitting in traffic for like 30-40 minutes a day at least. Right now I have a 5 minute commute… so it will be a change for sure

It all depends what time of day and what area with traffic but it sounds like where you're going you're pretty close . I seen your other post . Maybe just sell the truck and buy a brand new wrx/evo /frs

Or buy a cheaper car and save the mileage on your truck. The mpg will pay for the car. Especially if it allows you to move 10-15 minutes further out, you'd save rent also.

Around the Mission Valley area, Allied Gardens, Dell Cerro, San Carlos, are all decent areas, rent is not quite as high as alot of places nearer to Downtown or the coast and is still close to PT Loma.

My 2 cents. You won't find to many nice houses for $2200 thats West of the 15.

I like in a townhouse in Mission Valley and spend $2000 and have a 2 car garage.

You should be able to find a place around Mission Valley. Fashion Valley, Bay Park, Bay Ho, Mission Hills, North Park for the price you are looking for.

Get on Craigslist and start searching.

cool thing about Clairemont is it's cheap (relatively) and located close to the 5 and 805 and you can jet down Balboa to get to the beach. I lived in Santee, El Cajon, La Mesa, next to SDSU, Tierrasanta, and Clairemont and the last one was by far my favourite.

Maybe Mission Valley?

Clairemont is definitely a step up from those other neighborhoods listed.

For $2200 in San Diego, you're either going to get a nice apartment or a shitty house.

Was born and raised here, as were my parents. My grandparents literally had stories about when Mission Valley was dairy farms as far as the eye can see and when I-5 didn't even exist yet.

Everyone's pretty much nailed it between the nice areas vs. the bad ones though. Take a look on Craigslist and see what you can find. Plenty of okay places in okay parts of town that $2200 a month would pay for and then some.
