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.
