I lived in San Diego for 5 years...downtown and then in North Park. North Park is a fantastic neighborhood -- near Balboa Park, great old craftsman homes, and some great shops and restaurants along 30th and along University. My wife and I found the city of San Diego to not be a great city per se (coming from SF), and all the stuff about infrastructure and support for arts and culture is true. However, we realized after a bit that the thing to do is get outside. In whatever way you can. Take up a hobby that requires you to be outside (kayaking, swimming, diving, cycling, even walking) and enjoy what San Diego does have, which is amazing weather and a beautiful coastline. Also, the Hillcrest farmer's market is the best in the region...
