Tucked away in California’s south-westernmost corner, both physically and culturally nudged up against the Mexican border, is San Diego, known as “America’s Finest City.
An eclectic mix of inviting sandy beaches, majestic desert-scapes, and a thriving cultural scene highlighted by craft beer pubs, incredible restaurants, and world-class zoological destinations, this is truly a mecca for visitors of any age or creed.
The second-largest city in California (and the eighth largest in the United States) boasts a whopping 1.5 million residents, with almost 3.5 million in the whole of San Diego County. Loaded with world-famous attractions, events, and neighborhoods, there’s no end of exploration to be done here. Areas like the Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, Downtown, Point Loma, Balboa Park, and Hillcrest all have their charms, while tourist draws like SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, and the annual pop-cultural extravaganza known as the San Diego Comic-Con International is set to leave an everyday stamp with the coming museum.
