Default Anyone move just to move? Contemplating a move from Chicago to SoCal

just to get out of Chicago for the winter and possibly longer. Nothing is really making me move and I would be doing it for a change of scenery. I would be going with one of my best friends and we know a couple of people in the area (LA and San Diego). I would most likely keep the same job as they allow me to work anywhere. Thinking about moving from October to April and then evaluating the situation then to see if I stay longer.

I have lived in Chicago most of my life and am very stable financially. I probably wouldnt buy a place, but rent for the 6 months and if I decide to stay, probably buy a place.

We are honestly not sure on the place right now. Either LA or San Diego, but here is our base criteria:
- must be close to surfable beaches
- very active night life (both 25 years old and love to go out)
- nice area, willing to pay up to $2400 a month for a 2 bedroom
- hopefully in an area with a high concentration of young professionals

Default both LA and SD fit your criteria

SD is probably more laid back and slower pace than LA, but coming from a place like Chicago, you'll be fine in LA. Either way, you can't go wrong.

Default San Diego. Get a place near downtown for the Gaslamp or La Jolla (if you can find one for that).

San Diego rules.

Such a broad term.

Default Make sure to pick the are well. Lots of good beach communities in LA...

but, as USCTrojan pointed out, SD is more laid back than LA.

In SD, Pacific Beach is probably a good area for what I think you're looking for. La Jolla too.
