    Scripps Ranch and Poway are great communities for families with children. They have good public schools, reasonable cost of living and are close to all kinds of outdoor activities. Hikes nearby, 25 mins to the beach, etc... I moved to Mission Beach in San Diego when I was 25yo and have a number of friends who were born and raised in Scripps and Poway. They raved about their hometown and community and have gone on to become very successful people. Hope this help!! -Matt

    Poway, Rancho Peñasquitos, Carmel Valley, are all suburbs with GREAT schools. Also consider Carlsbad (California) or Encinitas.

    I lived in San Diego for 11 years and I have two kids. I don't know what the budget is and that could change my answers but if you want to live by the water going up the coast I would say Cardiff by the Sea Encinitas Solana Beach Del Mar La Jolla and Coronadobut everything in Coronado is inconvenient.

    In North County Poway Sabre Springs Carmel Mountain Ranch Rancho Bernardo are all nice and have some of the top schools around.

    Tons of things for kids to do in San Diego as well.

    Most of San Diego is family friendly. I think the most important factor in considering where to live is the rating of the schools in the area. Neighborhoods with good schools are Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Poway, Encinitas, and Carlsbad (California).

    Hello Cameron,

    I've lived in San Diego since 2001 with the exception of one year when I moved my young family to Toronto, Canada. Though Toronto is an awesome city, family-friendly areas are in pockets. I consider San Diego to be the opposite: a family-oriented group of cities (almost all of it, with some exception pockets like parts of downtown SD). The "best areas" for a young family, therefore, come down to work commute, living costs, schools, other personal preferences.

    Of course, this is one person's opinion. I'd advice your friends to consider renting a home for their first year in San Diego in order to identify neighborhoods that best match them.

    Here's a link to Top Ten neighborhoods in San Diego based on several criteria***: http://www.liveclassy.com/toptens/toptens.php

    Stay classy, San Diego !!

    Jorge


    *** - I'm not affiliated to this website, I think it offers very good information on some SD neighborhoods.
