      Just drove La Mesa and Spring Valley. Old, poor street lights, roads sketchy. Saw some cops breaking up a crackhead hang out, turned down a street and noticed some prostitutes. How do I know they were? Yah ok sure. Stopped at a few stores and not impressed with any of it. Lots of spray paint and tagging. Maybe some gated communities are nice but you still have to grocery shop outside those gates. Based off 77 score I'd say No way. More like 57. But hey opinions are like yah....go drive around enjoy. I'm not paying $580K to live there. Good luck

      Spring Valley California: Natural Spring Enjoyment!

      Spring Valley California is an area known for its natural spring historical landmark. I welcomed the sunny environment and a robust sense of safety while living in Spring Valley California. The city is an extension of San Diego County and claims to have over 100,000 citizens.

      I really had a memorable and great time living there. Education, employment, and housing are all positive facets of the city. The economy is solid, however, the cost of living seemed to grow higher an higher over time. The city is about 120 miles away from star-studded Los Angeles, and it offers relatively enjoyable amenities. Families and single adults find Balboa Park to be common grounds in the community. One of my favored and best areas in Spring Valley California is called La Jolla. This is a fairly upscale beach outlet that boasts miles and miles of sheer fun. It also houses the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, a historic remnant of the University of California San Diego.
