Need some input from the Cali JG Guys

Hey fellas...so im originally from the east coast and I'm having a tough time debating whether or not to move to Cali for a job. I'm going to fly over for a job interview in the next couple of weeks and taking a tour of the company/area. However, I don't think a couple of days will be enough for me to really get to know the area well. I was wondering if any of our Cali JG bros could give me some insight on Santa Maria and the surrounding area. Any/all info would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Santa Maria is very close to me...about an hour north of Santa Barbara. The Central Coast is amazing IMO...close to LA yet don't have to deal with all of the people. I love SB, but IDK much about Santa Maria other than locale...wine country is close, and the weather is awesome! Where are you flying into?

Re: Need some input from the Cali JG Guys

county airport?...that's what the itinerary said...

other than the wine country, iyho, how is it as a place to live? I was looking for info about SM and it seems opinions of the city are a mixed bag. some people love it, some hate it. others are saying its nice, but there's nothing to do, and that the city is going downhill. The things that concern me most are the cost of living, quality of life, and safety of the area. SB looks nice, but I don't think an hour commute everyday would be feasible/reasonable...haha, i like to take my sweet time in the mornings anyway...
