Blue Mountains or Wollongong

Hi, I'm in my 20's and currently live in the 'lower/mid Mountains' and starting to think about where I would like to settle down. I am originally from the South Coast, near Jervis bay and I am finding that I am starting to miss the beachy lifestyle.
I love the mountains, but I feel there is just nothing to do, especially for kids and teens unless you want to go to Penrith and that gets very repetitive.
I do love the community though.
As a teacher, I can get a job almost anywhere as long as I am willing to commute so I am not worried about that.
I am also getting concerned about the fire risk up here in the Mountains.

I will be renting, and there are no cheap apartments in the mountains either. This is a factor for me.
I love visiting wollongong, but have noticed some areas look worse than others.

So what is your opinion? Coastal city lifestyle or quiet mountain lifestyle?

Thanks :)

Coastal City life is a different experience. Every one is very relaxed and so friendly.
The children nearly all do nippers which is learning to swim and survive on the beaches.
The cafes and dining out life is beautiful set with gorgeous views.
