ive been here since 2005 after growing up and living in san diego for 30 years and its just as safe as the next place. its not as if youre gonna step outside and be mugged at every corner. its only as dangerous or safe as you allow your surroundings to get.. As a bonus, as long as youre of age and not a felon you can carry a concealed weapon and youre completely legal! The town does have a meth epidemic, but as long as you stay away from the infected you'll be fine. maybe not the best place to raise kids because of its epidemic and the potential for peer pressure though..
