San Diego is a modern city on the Southern California seacoast, the second largest city in the state with 1.3 million residents. It is known for its ideal climate, miles of beaches, and location on the Mexican border, right across from Tijuana. It has a rich heritage built around sailing and is home to the Pacific Fleet of the United States Navy. It is also well known for its part in the wildlife conservation movement, being home to a SeaWorld theme park and the "world-famous" San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. Though large in its own respects, many come to San Diego to escape the hustle and bustle of nearby Los Angeles.
In recent decades, growth in San Diego has exploded, with many corporations moving their headquarters here and a huge influx of residents. Today it's a favorite destination for retirees and tourists.
