I’m working towards my undergraduates degree at the moment in Northern California and every year that goes by I miss San Diego more and more. In Northern California you can drive 30 miles in one direction and you will end up three towns over, but in San Diego you can drive 30 miles and still be in San Diego! Hopefully the 30 miles you drove were towards the coast too because - oh yeah - there are beaches in San Diego! Beaches where the water is not going to bite back and you can actually swim about. I love San Diego because the list of things to do in San Diego is so diverse! From having a day at the beach, walking around downtown or Seaport Village, the nightlife by the Gas Lamp, exploring North Park, Balboa Park - or really just exploring anywhere. The choices are endless.

San Diego is a beautiful city with excellent weather year-round. People in general are quite affluent but pleasant to be around with, in my experience. The schools are good, and in addition to relaxing by the beach, one can also visit various neighborhoods like Little Italy and eat delicious food. The Mexican food has also got to be the best Mexican food you can get outside of Mexico itself! The public transportation is not great, and it's recommended to get a car to travel the long distance within San Diego.
I love San Diego! Our city has so much to offer: Hiking trails, Beaches, Marina's, Great food, Historical landmarks, and beautiful views. We are a couple hours from Los Angeles, and about an hour from Mexico. Anything you could think of doing, you'll probably find in San Diego. We don't really experience seasons here either; It's a constant summer here except for the rare rainy day(s). I recommend for anyone who has never come to San Diego to at least spend a weekend here. You won't want to leave!
