San Diego has always been praised as one of the best cities worldwide whether it be for its food, it’s entertainment, the people, or the amount of sunshine they all get year round. Here are a few motives to stay in or move to the sunniest region in California.
1. The Beaches.
If the sun is shining on the weekend where does everyone go? The beach, because they sure aren’t going downtown. There is one for each flavor, check out Mission Bay for some great biking or hit Pacific Beach for a little bit more prep. With over 70 miles of coastline you are bound to hit one that floats your boat, some of which are leash free for you favorite companions convenience. However, many locals tend to wait out the tourist season until October where the beaches aren’t as crowded, the jellyfish have dispersed, the water gets warmer and there’s plenty of parking.
2. Weather Fit For Paradise.
Winter. Summer. No matter the season you can bet on it being close to 70 degrees outside. With the edges of the city reaching around 80 or the suburbs getting in excess of 100 you can be sure of ditching your winter clothes
3. The mouth-watering food.
Between all the varieties of ingredients and ethnicities of meals in San Diego, the mexican cuisine is what most San Diegans take to heart. Fish tacos, enchiladas, and the most sacred of sustenance, the famed California Burrito. Beloved by starving surfer, college student and businessman alike, the burrito’s filled with carne asada, cheese, salsa, guacamole and the magic ingredient: french fries.
4. San Diego knows a thing or two about beer.
San Diego knows its way around a tasty IPA. Coming in hot at No. 3 on the Forbes best beer cities ( behind Portland and San Fran.), nearly every bar carries a selection of local brews like Karl Strauss, Stone, and Ballast Point. However, with great beer comes great festivals. The Festival of Beer in September donates money to cancer-fighting causes while the International Beer Festival in June crowns a best in show.
5. The Festivals
Yes, San Diego has great weather, that’s no secret. What isn’t widely known is that the year-round sun means there’s almost always a free street festival to crash. From the Adams Avenue Street Festival to Chula Vista’s Lemon Festival, each celebration gives you a taste of our many different neighborhoods.
