San Diego is the perfect place to live for many reasons. Not only do you have the Pacific coast, but the beautiful climate and awesome temperatures as well. There are plenty of beaches, and the weather is sunny almost every day. Enough, at least, to earn it the title of one of the sunniest cities in the US!
San Diego is located about 120 miles south of Los Angeles and ranks second largest in the state. You can enjoy all the big city perks, but with a more relaxed atmosphere.
San Diego was the first permanent Spanish settlement in California, and home to many missions. Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala was the first church in the state. It is also home to many museums, cultural places and so much more. The San Diego Zoo is one of the most famous zoos in the country, even worldwide. It hosts over 3.2 million visitors every year. Located in Balboa Park, the zoo is one of many attractions Balboa Park has to offer. The year 2015 marks the 100th anniversary for the park.
