These are a few of my favorite things about sunny San Diego. How many times has a city touched you? In a way that you feel like you’ve always been home. I can say that I can easily count those cities on one hand. I’ve always felt comfortable living in a city surrounded by diverse nationalities and San Diego is exactly that. A melting pot full of mixed cultures, in a laid-back environment. What’s not to love? Here’s 5 reasons that’ll put America’s Finest City on the top of the list for your next trip.
- Picturesque Weather
Being a city on the coast, it’s prized for its prime location and sunny weather all year round. Summers are warm and ideal for strolling on the sidewalk in flip flops and beach shorts. It isn’t soul crushingly hot like other parts of California. Summers reach a mid-high of 60 and a high of mid-70. On the other hand, winters, reach an average of high 40s and low 50s. If you live in the colder regions of this planet, visiting this part of the world will melt the icicles in your heart (hah, I made a joke see).
- Azure Beaches
100 kilometers of coastline? You heard that right. There’s an endless string of beaches to visit in San Digeo. A few of my favorites was a spot in La Jolla. Known for its winding, rugged coastline, trailing down pine trees made me feel like I’m in the tropics. I also just asked one of my friends if I could borrow his longboard, but I saw a couple of places around the area where you can rent boards. After a post-surf sesh, I highly recommend strolling around the boardwalk in Pacific Beach to wind down with a cold kombucha and some home fries.
3. Mexican Food & Craft Beers
San Diego’s about 15 minutes from Mexico. So it comes as no surprise that Mexican food is a mega staple there. For the best tacos, it all comes down to the ability of your tastebuds to sample the best Carne Asadas and Chorizo burritos. El Cuervo has my vote but there are a ton of choices out there. Afterwards, stop by a brewery in the area and grab a cold one. The added calories won’t be such a feat after dousing your throat with malty goodness.
4. Visit San Diego Harbor
“City Of Sails” is another name for San Diego and it’s also home to the U.S Navy’s Pacific fleet. Take in the picturesque views by going on a short sail cruise with a bottle of white wine and your pals. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a long day. While you’re at it, you’ll see a couple of musicians busking on the sidewalk, playing reggae or nice tunes. Don’t forget to sit back and absorb the music.
- Visit a Start Up
Biotechnology, telecom and healthcare and massive departments that contribute to the job sphere in San Diego. While the local tech arena is booming, plenty of start-ups are popping out, making it a hub for tech geeks and coders alike.
