Beach Cities Lifestyle
What is important to you? Promimity to the beach? Proximity to employment? Proximity to schools?
Is public transportation important? Don't laugh - my husband swears that public transportation downtown is the only way to do a beach cities to downtown commute. He like to veg with his java and contemplate the day ahead (or not). He knows the schedule inside out and the alternatives for after hours commuting back to the beach cities.
Who are “your people” and where do they live? Your people might include family, other support systems or just people who like the same kinds of restaurants and grocery stores.
Beach Cities Schools
Are schools an important consideration for your family? What do you want? Student population diversity? Proximity? Top standardized test scores? Alternative education philosophies (my personal favorite!)?
