San Diego is beautfiul!!!! Beaches are a real treat and the carne asada is to die for!
I don't like how packed the beaches get and parking is a joke! You have to arrive very early to find parking at Mission Beach.
San Diego has the best weather in all of the USA. The oceans are a thing of beauty and the outdoor activities are perfect for any outdoor enthusiast. There is always a place to go and always something to do. There are a vast amount of choices for food and beverages in all the different neighborhoods and the ambiance is only enhanced with the ocean views. Most of San Diego is very secure with minimal crime, but there are areas to stay away from especially late at night with the amount of homeless.
Go for a hike one day the beach the next then hang out in downtown, three completely different experiences all within half hour drive. The housing market is difficult, you absolutely pay for the weather as it is very expensive to live in a descent neighborhood.
The weather here is beautiful, the downtown area is very cool. There are lots of bars, clubs and high end restuaurants. With the Chargers having moved in recent years, there is a lack of professional sports but there are beaches, the zoo and many other attractions.
Balboa Park and the Zoo are a couple of my favorite places. Balboa Park features many different exhibits which sometimes seasonally change and is a very scenic area of downtown. The Zoo is historic, the best that I have been to and is easily an all day venture, which even then you probably won't get to see all the features.
"Rich in History and Rich for Future Growth" LIttle Italy is by far my favorite Downtown Neighborhood and yes I am biased because I do live here. I have lived here for 6+ years and I love it more each day. I don't know of any other community in San Diego that has its own association. The Little Italy Association has taken charge of this historic neighborhood and is constantly involved in maintaining its roots and heritage while at the same time improving the neighborhood. I love that I can call the association and let them know if there is an issue that has to be addressed such as an outage with a street light or graffiti, they take care of it ASAP. Little Italy is Preserve America Community.
Everyone knows there are no shortage of Italian Restaurants in Little Italy, but we also have some of the best burgers in San Diego as well. You can find those at the Waterfront Bar or at Burger Lounge. There have been a few newer restaurants that do not serve Italian Food and they have been very successful with the locals, because Little Italians need something different once in awhile. Craft and Commerce, Underbelly and El Camino have been welcome additions to the non-italian menus around town.
THERE ARE PLENTY OF GREAT THINGS TO DO IN SAN DIEGO. YOU CAN LITERALLY GO TO THE MOUNTAINS, DESERT AND BEACH ALL ON THE SAME DAY. THE SCHOOLS ARE EXCELLENT, THE WEATHER IS GREAT AND THE PEOPLE ARE GOOD
THE BEACH, THE MOUNTAINS, THE WEATHER AND THE PEOPLE IS WHAT STOOD OUT THE MOST ABOUT SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA. IT IS WORTH THE EXTRA COST OF LIVING TO LIVE THERE BECAUSE IT IS AMERICA'S FINEST CITY INDEED.
I'm not sure the hype about San Diego. Sure the weather is nice and not too harsh. Lets me honest there is way too much traffic. The scenery is just OK. Everything is overpriced. There are way better places to visit in the US.
Lots of great taco shops which is a bonus.
Overall San Diego is a great place to life with fun activities, great food and weather. Unfortunately, the cost of living is skyrocketing which is making it cost prohibitive. The homeless population and general population growth is a huge negative and traffic is resembling LA.
The San Diego Zoo, beaches, and dining experiences are amazing. Traffic, crime, and homeless population is growing which are the biggest negatives.
