A Closer Look at San Diego, California

San Diego is a major American city, ranking as the second most populous in California and the eighth largest in the United States. The local economy spans most business sectors, including tourism, but is arguably led by the military. The only deepwater port on the West Coast is home to a significant naval base, submarine and shipbuilding yards, as well as Marine Corps bases and Coast Guard stations.

Cultural opportunities for San Diego residents abound, highlighted by the San Diego Zoo, which is one of the top zoological centers in the world. Many museums (including the Museum of Man), excellent restaurants, and live music venues dot the surrounding area. Local opera, symphony, and theater companies add to the culture of the region.

Professional sports are popular in San Diego, especially with the San Diego Padres in MLB. Sadly the NFL’s San Diego Chargers moved back to Los Angeles, leaving a void in the local sports scene. The San Diego State Aztecs college teams are also popular. Remember, a great high-speed Internet service lets customers watch their favorite team from home or on a mobile device.

As a coastal city, San Diego features a large number of beaches in addition to a wide array of city parks and other sites suitable for outdoor activities and visits. The Mission Trails Regional Park and Balboa Park are two of the highlights. The Trust for Public Land ranks the city’s park system as the ninth-best in the country. Beautiful scenery abounds throughout the region.

San Diego is also served by a multitude of air, automobile, and other transportation options. San Diego International Airport – also known as Lindbergh Field – provides air travel to destinations throughout the country and beyond. It is the busiest single runway airport in the country. Interstates 5, 8, 15, and 805 help move automobile, bus, and truck traffic throughout the area. San Diego Trolley light rail and the SDMTS bus service as well as others move commuters throughout the region.

Ultimately, San Diego remains a great place to raise a family, go to school, or start a career.
