My family will be moving out to the North San Diego area in the summer of 2013 and I'd like to get a jump start on finding the best place for us to live. We currently live near Baltimore in Maryland, so this will be a huge move for us, but a good one
So far, we've found some great homes in the Escondido area, however I've heard that this is not a 'good' place to live. True or not? I don't know. Are there any good schools in the Escondido area? Parts that are better than others?
We prefer Encinitas since my brother lives there and when we visit it's the place we stay...however it's pretty pricey and we'd like to live in a single family home. Although, if the schools are better in the Encinitas area as opposed to the Escondido area, then we'd reconsider the big house thing and go for a condo.
Any and all hints and tips are much appreciated
