If you’re contemplating a move to San Diego, whether as part of a corporate relocation or a family move, you’re making a wise choice. Moving and packing is stressful on its own; moving to a new city – a big one at that – adds to the stress a bit more. However, having a local moving company on your side that not only has experience in moving and packing but one that’s also fluent in the San Diego landscape, will make everything much easier on you.
San Diego is home to 1.4 million, and is located on the scenic coast of the Pacific Ocean just 120 miles south of LA. Adjacent to the Mexican border, San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the country and second largest in the state. This beautiful city is well known for its warm climate, deep-water harbor, miles of gorgeous beaches, and even its emergence as a healthcare and biotech development center.
Something for Everyone
Nicknamed “the birthplace of California,” San Diego was ranked by US News as the 36th best place to live in the entire country and 51st in best places to retire based on the cost of living, quality of life and the job market. The schools are top rated in the area and the unemployment rate is lower than the national average, steadily declining in recent years. Business is booming here, and so is education.
However, there’s much more to this Southern California beach city than you may see at first glance. The lifestyle you lead will depend on your interests. San Diego has something for everyone.
If you’re a beach bum, you’ll never tire of laying on the beach, walking it for seashells, surfing or just admiring the horizon. If you’re an artsy person, you’re in luck, as this area features so many museums and art galleries, such as the USS Midway Museum, San Diego Air and Space Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Space 4 Art, and the Murals of La Jolla.
Whether you crave an urban or suburban environment, or you’re looking for beach living, San Diego has it all. There are so many things to do, from outdoor activities and recreation opportunities to museums and entertainment venues.
The impressive Balboa Park remains a stand-out attraction in San Diego, the site of the amazing San Diego Zoo, as well as a number of art galleries, museums, artists’ studios and gardens. Its deep harbor is home to a large and active naval fleet, with the USS Midway being open to the public.
Featuring world-class dining, professional sports, entertainment options, festivals, bars and pubs, cultural attractions and more, this is not surprising of such a large metro area. But it’s the patchwork of distinct neighborhoods that foster strong community ties that sets this city apart from the rest of CA.
There are festivals and farmers markets, meet-ups with friends at beaches, picnics in parks, mommy and me strolls, and rendezvous at local bars and restaurants.
What to Do
Balboa Park is home to more than 16 museums, multiple performing arts venues, scenic gardens, trails, playgrounds and theaters. You should also check out the USS Midway Museum, La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores Park, Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, Petco Park, and Birch Aquarium.
San Diego is home to many scenic hiking trails. Want an ocean view? Try Torrey Pines in Del Mar. If you want high, panoramic views, head to Potato Chip Rock in Poway. If you’re a thrill seeker and like heights, go to San Elijo Hills. This is where you’ll find a trail that goes up to Double Peak, which happens to be the highest point in San Diego County.
