San Ysidro is a very transited area. People who travel across the border to Mexico everyday are mostly the people who transit it's streets more. People usually pump their gas in San Ysidro before crossing the border; others change dollars to pesos. San Ysidro is like a pit stop for those who live in Mexico, but cross the border everyday.

San Ysidro a city in Sand Diego where meets the border line, to enter Tijuana Mexico. A place where tourist shop and attract a lifestyle of hardworking Americans and immigrants from all over the world. It's an experience of survival, communication, business, and trades. You see people making money and constantly moving at a certain paste. Money is the motive. People still migrate to trade and do business just like it's been our entire lives. I believe that city has plenty of potential. I have been here plenty of times. My father is an immigrant and was raised in the United States, he was deported. Every time I travel to Tijuana I make sure to take him food from San Ysidro, or I buy him dog food for his pets because everything is cheaper here in America and the economy sucks in Mexico. I shop in San Ysidro all the time when I am there. I love there outlets. Its like a landing point for travels it's amazing and I enjoy it every time.
In the 18 years living in San Ysidro I would say that it is a peaceful town. Peaceful in the sense of when going outside not worrying about anything bad happening. However it does have the busy commuters and shoppers coming from across the border from Baja California since it has the world largest border crossing right there. It is an annoyance dealing with traffic everyday during rush hour but we have learned to deal with it. It is always fascinating seeing people at the outlets that come from many other places not just across the border. I have seen Germans, French, Arabic, Brazilian, and many other foreign shoppers come so close to where I live. The only thing I would change about San Ysidro which it is happening little by little is to improve the border crossing experience. Expand the small entrance and improve transportation options and stations for crossers.
