Commuting to San Diego from Orange Country: Any insights?
posted by EatenByAGrue to Travel & Transportation around California (15 answers total)
I'm thinking of working in San Diego (near Solana Beach) and living in Orange County (Irvine or further south). I'm unfamiliar with what rush hour traffic between the two would be like, and how long it would take. Does it make much of a difference if I live further south in Orange County (e.g., Laguna Niguel versus Irvine)? Or if I go at non-standard hours (either earlier or later)?
I was also thinking of possibly taking Amtrak between Orange County and Solana Beach. Anyone with experience with that route?
Finally, if this is going to be a nightmare, how livable is the area around Solana Beach (although I'd really prefer to live in Orange County)?
Any advice welcome. Thanks.
