we were choosing between living right on the beach but not as close to the central business district (CBD - aka. downtown) versus living in the CBD where there would be lots to do with lots of people our age.
if you know me at all you know i was pushing for downtown even though the alternative was definitely just as appealing. in the end, though, the CBD prevailed for many reasons:
- easy access to the attractions and younger crowd the cbd offers - shopping mall, target, restaurants, etc.
- most likely close to where i will find a job
- still 10 minutes from the beach so it's not like it's far away
