PB, Mission Valley, Gaslamp...too many people. I also don’t go anywhere that isn’t close to the freeway; i.e., Eastlake, La Jolla. Too much trouble.

San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp Quarter, because of the panhandlers and all the squalid dramas brought to us by homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks.

I don’t avoid any parts of town. As a rollerblader/snowboarder in San Diego, if there is something to hit up on the streets, i’m going to hit it up. PERIOD. And it’s all the non-SD natives that avoid places that hate on people that live in those places.

National “Nasty” City, Chula Vista — too many native Mexicans and illegals who can’t drive and let their offspring run and scream unattended in the stores, especially at “el Wal-marr.”

I avoid Garnet Ave. in PB at night......a few too many drunkin' embarrassing young adults wandering aimlessly in and out of the bars. In the day....I love it!!! Ride my bike everywhere in PB and Mission Beach. Best place around!!
