That lack of friendliness we perceived could be a regional difference, or perhaps it's because Valencia used to be off the tourist track and now gets its full share of foreign visitors -- good for small businesses, but not so great for the locals who preferred how it used to be.
Much as I liked Valencia, I decided it's not a city I'd choose to live in for the reasons mentioned. I'm not a beach guy either, so that wasn't a draw.
