Where would be the best place to live in the San Diego area?

I am single and planning to move in just a few years. I would like to live outside of the busy cities- I love quiet and slower living.

-East Chula Vista (Rencho Del Rey, Eastlake or Rolling Hills Ranch) is laid back. The area is reletively new. Lots of homes were built between 1999 and 2005. They are still building. There are parks, trails, shopping, resturants, and medical centers. Reminds me of Small Town, USA.
-Bonita is quiet and laid back. It’s tucked into a pocket between Spring Valley, National City, and East Chula Vista. Has a lot of country views with ranches. We used to drive through so our daughter could see the horses. Nice golf course there. It is expensive as well.
-The Tierra Santa is laid back and quiet. It’s kind of secluded but not far from freeway access. Not many people have to come into Tierra Santa unless they live or work there. Not a lot of shopping. Two grocery stores, a few shops, Blockbuster, a few resturants, a post office. If you want major shopping you have to cross the freeway.
-Ramona is nice and quiet. A small town with mountainous landscape. It’s a far from downtown San Diego.
-Poway is also reminesent of a small town. It’s secluded but has shopping and is one of San Diego’s best school districts. I know you’re single, but I thought I’d throw that out there anyway.
-Coronado is an island and it’s very laid back like a small town too. It is a tourist attraction and there are military bases there so the traffic during rush hour can be horrible.
-Point Loma (there area which is after Rosecrans and Nimitz Blvd intersect) is very quiet and close to the beach. Shopping is very close but once Rosecrans turns back into four, then six lanes, it’s hectic sometimes because the Sports Arena is in that area.

    Mmmmmmmmmm, Coronado is just the best place in the world if you ask me. Better start saving fast, it is extremely expensive! But if you could get a small apartment over a shop in town, well now, that would be incredible!

    San Diego is a big city.

    If you move to east county you are outside of the busy city, but.. you are then pretty much in the desert. East County is "quiet and slow".

    The beach communities can be quite but Very expensive.
