Ok,the wife and I would like to move to southern California.Wheres a good place for work,family,fun of course,but not terribly expensive and not in a giant city.To be honest
I would also consider moving to mexico if i could find work but that almost seems unrealistic.

Seems to be the same in CA right now with various reports of unemployment reaching 10-20%.

Probably not a good move at this time unless you have plenty of funds to see you through. Especially if you want to live where sk recommends.

Good Luck! Will you need a work visa?

You cannot legaly work in mexco.
But you could live on the beach & commute to the states. :)

Troy,
Are there non-citizen, non-resident work visas that are valid more than a couple months?

San Diego would probably be the best....border to mexico, close to most off road races, beautiful city, some parts are inexpensive (relatively)...

I think thats a "FM3"visa.
My retired friends are going through a whole bunch of BS because he was buildng custom cabnets for neighbor (taking work from the locals) They are currently trying to seize his home.

You guys are crazy, the best place hands down is El Centro. Moved back here in 2001 from San Clamente. Unemplyment 26% and the current temp right now at 8:00pm is 101. But seriously I kick myself everyday for moving from San Clamente, best place I ever lived.
