San Diego has great landmarks such as the beaches, Presidio park, Balboa park, and just the general weather is a great addition. Some areas can be dangerous but its best to stay inside at night unless you're going out for a night in downtown. San Diego has a general high cost for living here.

I am close enough to everything I need access to. I am only ten minutes away from my school, depending on traffic, and I am no more than thirty minutes away from the beaches, or anything else I need to reach in San Diego. I am right around the corner from delicious food places and there is a lake where I can exercise that is also right up the hill from my place.
Living here is wonderful. There is tons of diversity everywhere you go and the beaches are extremely beautiful. Some downsides are that it is very expensive to live here and unfortunately there can be a lot of traffic sometimes. Everyone is generally happy and overall San Diego is a great place to live.
