Why is escondido so ghetto?

There are beautiful and incredible rural neighborhoods, with very low crime rates. Close to the center, it has typical problems of the city: homelessness, pollution and higher crime rates, presence of gangs. Escondido is a good city and has a very diverse group of people. There are a lot of local food places that are quite good.

We're back on the road and we're going through the third worst suburb of San Diego you can live in. You might expect to see El Cajón here. While the cost of living is low, your entertainment and work options are limited. If you live in Lemon Grove, you'll most likely struggle to make ends meet.

It ranks as the fifth lowest suburb in San Diego when it comes to money-making residents. Lemon Grove is about 8.1 miles from the city center. Imperial Beach has the distinction of being a suburb of San Diego. Which means that's all he has going for him.

Imperial Beach has an unemployment rate of 7.73%, which ranks fourth worst. Vista has 100,659 residents who probably know it's a pretty bad place to live when you look at the data. Or, if you've ever been there, you don't need to look at the data. You're ranked the seventh worst place to live in San Diego.

City leaders wanted to revitalize the Gaslamp Quarter. They wanted downtown homeless residents to move to the East Village, and decided that pushing homeless providers from the city to the East Village would make it easier.
