Esther, Southern California is huge. Do you have an area narrowed down? I live in Orange County and can recommend various cities, but it all depends on what you are looking for in a community. Many people love Irvine because it's a planned community with parks and family activities everywhere. Other cities like Orange and Fullerton have old townes and historic sites which interest others more inclined towards indy/funky/artsy.

Hi esther12x,

You've posted in Oakland which is actually in NorCal. As for Southern California, there are many areas that are well regarded--from the San Fernando Valley, to Ventura County, to Orange County down to San Diego County. It will depend on where you will be working because traffic is an issue and what you can afford, because the same house in one area might be $200K or $600K in another neighborhood.
