Welcome to California, USA!
San Diego, a vibrant city located on the beautiful Southern California coast with an idyllic climate and pristine beaches, is known as ‘America’s Finest City’.
In 2015, National Geographic Traveler magazine selected San Diego as one of 20 “Best of the World” destinations.
With its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, mountains, deserts, and natural reserves, recreational opportunities including surfing, sailing, golfing, hiking, and mountain climbing abound in the San Diego area year round.
San Diego is America’s eighth largest city, but enjoys the friendliness, hospitality and safety of a much smaller city.
