San Diego is one of those cities that will always feel like home at the end of the day. If you tour downtown you have the opportunity to feel like you are on a vacation! You can explore Coronado, go sailing in the Pacific Ocean, and eat ice cream along the streets that are lit up with gorgeous lights. Pacific Beach is crowded with college aged california surfers and people looking for a good time. There are so many fun activities you will never be bored here! If nothing at all you will leave with a gorgeous sun tan.

There are one million residents. So, there is everything you could want in a city, from Costcos, to museums, good and fine restaurants, nightclubs, breweries, gangs, and hairy traffic congestion.

The weather. When people ask about SD weather I reply that there are only two seasons; day and night. Sure, there are some chilly days and I’ve even seen rain. Those usually only last a couple of days and do not make a SEASON. So if you want to move there sell your down coat, and stock up on short sleeves.

Great schools and colleges and Universities. You can get smart in the sun!
close enough to, but far enough away from Los Angeles.
A great city to grow up in and good family neighborhoods, but getting a little crowded now, the traffic is getting bad, and the housing costs are super high. The beaches are beautiful up and down the coast and the people that live in San Diego are super friendly. There are a ton of restaurants all over the city, from fast food to fine dining and most have great food. Not a lot of nightlife unless you're downtown. Most of the city closes up pretty early. Beautiful place to visit and live though!
