In fact, California’s second largest city now offers an array of attractions, restaurants, entertainment and other hot spots for visitors. With perennial blue skies, 70 miles of beaches and a temperate Mediterranean climate, San Diego is an idyllic place to live, work and play.
Urban San Diego is one of the most dynamic metropolitan areas in the country, drawing visitors and residents alike with tantalizing sights and sounds – from colorful Little Italy with its trendy shops and galleries to the downtown waterfront, replete with public art and rich nautical history,
