1. Do NOT try to read all my tips at once - it takes ages,
2. Do NOT read this page at work unless you are a boss,
3. Do NOT drink (even light wine/beer) and read this page - you surely get drunk before you finish :-),
4. Do NOT rate all my tips unless you wish to become clickwoman/clickman,
5. KEEP SMILING :-)))))) and go for REAL travels, they are much better than virtual ones - am I wrong?
San Diego was the first American city I visited and - no doubts - one of the BEST of bigger cities I have ever visited.
My opinions on San Diego, California and the USA - people I met and places I visited are just MY first (and not last = I surely must visit the USA more times) opinions, views, observations always to discuss.
My top 5 reasons to visit San Diego:
1. Linda (lmkluque) who helped me a lot during my first (and last as for now) days on American soil,
2. Very, very nice people (they love visitors hehe) and very pleasant weather,
3. Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches,
4. Gaslamp District at night,
5. Charming Coronado Island (seperate city), fantastic Balboa Park, world famous ZOO and Sea World and many, many more.
The city is located in the southwest corner of the USA by a picturesque San Diego Bay and in contrast to Los Angeles it's free of tangle of freeways (UK - motorways) and smog.
It's said that citizens of San Diego are rich and much more conservative than in any other part of California. I don't know but the city itself is safe, comfortable, relaxing, full of flowers - just a must see whenever you are in California.
San Diego is full of history and Spanish - Mexican influences as well.
The first mission in California was established just here. Add the Santa Fe Railroad built in 1880' and the US Naval base which occupies part of Coronado Island. There was the headquaters of US Pacific Naval during WWII in San Diego .
- Pros:Linda (lmkluque), nice people, pleasant weather, Pacific ocean + beaches, Balboa park - Spanish architecture and its museums, ZOO, Sea World and many many more :-)))
- Cons:Lack of time to cover everything!
- In a nutshell:The finest city of the USA
It's the USA biggest (am I right?) discount supermarket chain. They sell everything there but no luxury or just more... more travel advice
