There’s not just one thing about San Diego that puts a smile on your face – it’s everything from year-round warm temperatures to amazing Pacific Coast beaches! This coastal city provides opportunities for amazing sea adventures, such as whale watching, sailing, and snorkeling. San Diego’s spacious and lush parks provide residents an assortment of outdoor recreation like hiking and biking.

With rugged mountain peaks and sheer cliffs in the distance, the landscape alone will make you love living in San Diego. Wallet Hub has recognized San Diego on its “Happiest Places to Live” list. The Gaslamp Quarter is the historic district, encompassed by bars, trendy restaurants, museums, theatres, and the Horton Plaza Mall, which is just a few blocks from Petco Park.

Residents living in San Diego enjoy visiting Balboa Park, a national historic site and the location of the San Diego Zoo, numerous museums, walking paths through lush gardens and courtyards, and fountains. Balboa is one of the oldest recreational parks in the United States, built in 1868. Renting apartments, whether military, luxury, or affordable, places you near the University of California San Diego campus in La Jolla, USS Midway Museum, and Old Town San Diego with historic adobe buildings dating back to the 1820s.

Its economy will keep you smiling; San Diego is home to seaside ports, defense contractors, plus military stations and bases. Tourism, of course, also plays a major role – beaches, the zoo, amusement parks, cruise ships, and craft breweries attract visitors year-round.
