Question: what do you call a place with miles of white sand beaches and amazing weather? Some might say “heaven,” but we’re talking about San Diego, California, renowned for its warm, dry summers, mild winters and annual average of just 42 days of rain. In fact, San Diego was named one of the country’s 10 best climates by those who know, the Farmer’s Almanac.
The city of San Diego has a hilly geography, with deep canyons and hills creating small pockets of natural parkland. The San Diego River traverses the city from east to west, creating a river valley which divides the city into northern and southern segments. San Diego is California’s second largest city, with a population of over one million people residing in 18 towns such as Carlsbad, Coronado, Del Mar, Point Loma, Chula Vista, Old Town, La Jolla, and North Park.
San Diego’s attractions include Sea World San Diego, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, and many historic parks and museums including the San Diego Museum of Art. One of the city’s biggest attractions is its shared border with Mexico. Tijuana and San Diego mesh into one international metropolitan area, with easy access to Mexico’s beachfront resorts and festivals.
The San Diego Symphony performs on a regular basis; the San Diego Opera was ranked by Opera America as one of the top 10 opera companies in the United States. The Old Globe Theatre and the La Jolla Playhouse are just two of many venues for the performing arts.
