San Diego by the numbers? What is it about San Diego that makes it such a wonderful place to visit? When I moved here 27 years ago, I came with some assumptions. I thought of “sunny weather, traffic and smog, the 8th largest city in the US, surfers, Mexico, world-famous zoo, desert, and military”.

San Diego is spectacular!
Well, guess what? San Diego turned out to be quite a gem. First of all, there isn’t any smog. And traffic? Only during rush hour, and even then, it just slows down a little. It IS technically a desert but you’d never know it, because it is so beautifully landscaped. And I nailed the “sunny weather” part. It’s rarely ever too cold or too hot. Like Goldilocks’ baby bear said, “It’s just right!” I love the military influence here, too: respect, honor, and sacrifice are great attributes in a neighbor. While the zoo IS incredible, so is Sea World and the Safari Park…and all the beaches, parks, lakes, and museums. If you haven’t had a chance to visit San Diego yet, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed when you come. San Diego Vacation Rentals put together this fun infographic for me to share with you. It does a great job of summing up San Diego by the numbers! Hope you stop by for a visit soon…
