OT-ish: Learning how to fly in San Diego

I've thought about taking flying lessons for a little while now and done some research into the handful of flying schools/clubs in the SD area. I was wondering if anyone has any experience actually taking lessons/classes down here. Thoughts? Recommendations? Advice?

I have a feeling that I'm going to enjoy learning what all of the displays show and when/why to adjust different levers more than the actual flying itself, so I've been trying to figure out what the different lessons offered might be like.

I earned my private at Palomar and instrument at Montgomery. Busy airspace to learn but by the time you're done you'll be an expert with ATC.

Miramar College (San Diego Community College District) has FAA approved ground school which is cheap for residents since it's a Community College and earns college credit if that counts for anything. You still need to work out flight training with a flying club or school but it can be a significant cost savings on the ground school portion of it.
