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 Wild Animal Park. Though large in its own respects, many come to San Diego to escape the hustle and bustle of nearby Los Angeles.
Except for bureaucratic purposes, San Diego really doesn't have any clearly defined "districts"; instead, the city is defined by its many individual neighborhoods, which are too numerous to list here. (more)
Except for bureaucratic purposes, San Diego really doesn't have any clearly defined "districts"; instead, the city is defined by its many individual neighborhoods, which are too numerous to list here.
This list of "districts" is by no means an official breakdown of the city, but one that is meant to make sense from the standpoint of a visitor, based on the number of attractions and/or amenities the average visitor will find in each area.
In addition, there are many communities and suburbs in the San Diego area that are not actually part of San Diego. See the San Diego County article.
