Everything about San Diego will make you smile, from the year-round warm weather to some of the most amazing beaches on the Pacific Coast. San Diego is near the Mexican border in Southern California, and it is filled with amazing adventures like whale-watching, surfing, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, biking, and more. With rugged mountain peaks and sheer cliffs soaring above the water, the landscape alone will make you love living in San Diego -- and you're not alone. In fact, Wallet Hub listed San Diego at number seven on its "Happiest Places to Live" list in 2017.
From shopping in the famous Gaslamp Quarter to exploring Balboa Park's 1,200 acres to attending MLB's San Diego Padres games, San Diego will satisfy every mood. Balboa Park, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the location of the famous San Diego Zoo, 15 museums, walking paths, gardens, and several theaters. Balboa Park is one of the oldest recreational parks in the US, built in 1868. Renting in San Diego also places you near the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), SeaWorld San Diego, USS Midway Museum, and Old Town San Diego, a historic park featuring adobe buildings dating back to the 1820s.
San Diego's economy will keep you smiling. San Diego is home to a deep-water port and several defense contractors are headquartered here, along with military stations and bases. Tourism, of course, is also a major industry -- the beaches, the zoo, Sea World, cruise ships, and craft breweries draw visitors year-round. International trade and high-tech companies can also be found in San Diego. Top employers include UCSD, the US Navy, Qualcomm, Dexcom, and Sharp HealthCare.
