Inland is more "affordable", but will typically experience greater swings in temperature.Areas like Lakeside, Poway, eastern El Cajon can seem somewhat "country" (leastways, to us in San Diego). Think larger lots, some with animals (e.g. goats, horses, chickens), etc.Areas like Ramona, Jamul, Alpine, etc. are "really inland", and arguably not really part of the "Greater San Diego" conversation. But, all are within 30-45 minutes, and provide a very rural environment for those who want that.Worst area for air quality is El Cajon (literally "the box"). This also makes it quite hot during the annual Santa Ana's (typically August/September). Alpine, somewhat counter-intuitively, is really the worst for air quality. While it sits at elevation and has no industry, it also sits at the head of the "the box" and any air pollution is piled up in Alpine by onshore winds (opposite of Santa Ana's, which come in off the desert).North County inland is more recently built out. Think bedroom communities built on old orchards, with the remnants of the orchards on many larger properties.Good luck...
