We're looking at moving to California's Central Coast (SLO area) sometime in the next few months. We're not super-familiar with the area, so definitely looking for advice from those who may have a bit of knowledge. What's nice out there? We initially thought Atascadero, but have heard some incredibly "mixed" reviews.
Here's some info...
Us: Married. Mid-30's. No kids. One cat. One will work from home. The other has a background in HR (among other things) and will need to find a gig.
Where we're from: The "Frigid North" (Think: Just a shade south of Canada)
Activities: Outdoor fun (hiking, geocaching, biking, etc.), driving around, video games, garage/estate sales, etc.
Why the Central Coast?: The weather, relatively low pollution and somewhat lower cost of living, when compared to the rest of California. Also, it's close to San Francisco, LA, lots of State/National Parks and other fun-type stuff.
Looking for any information people might be willing to share regarding their experiences, good or bad. Thanks in advance! If you have additional questions, please let us know.
