There are as many styles of living in San Diego as neighborhoods, and that’s plenty. But whether you are in the center of Downtown or in a suburban Northeastern neighborhood, San Diego has an easygoing feel that is unique among big cities. The city boasts a diverse culture, bolstered by San Diego’s close ties to the natural world, proximity to Mexico, and its large universities.
If you love the ocean, then San Diego is the right place for you. Surfers, swimmers, and sun worshippers fill its many beaches including Coronado Beach, La Jolla Beaches, Solana Beach, and Windansea Beach.
The Point Loma and Ocean Beach neighborhoods are located on a peninsula that offers the feel of a small coastal town. The peninsula is home to Shelter Island, where many of the city’s yacht clubs are based, including the San Diego Yacht Club.
If your idea of a day at the ocean involves more crowds and action, then check out the Mission Beach and Pacific Beach neighborhoods. They are connected by a boardwalk with its very own amusement park – Belmont Park – and the Big Dipper roller coaster.
Man-made Mission Bay is home to Sea World, a family-friendly marine theme park made famous by Shamu the killer whale. At night young people flock to Pacific Beach for its happening nightlife, with bars and clubs like Bar West and the Pacific Beach Bar and Grill.
Downtown San Diego is known for its trendy and historic Gaslamp Quarter, the posh Marina District, Cortez Hill, and Columbia.
Balboa Park is the city’s green heart. It contains many museums including the San Diego Museum of Art and the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, as well as the deservedly-renowned San Diego Zoo. You could spend all week looking at the zoo’s 4,000-plus animals from around the world, including rare species such as giant pandas, okapis, and harpy eagles.
