San Diego: America's Finest City
Diego is considered the “birthplace of California." European settlers first arrived here on the west coast in the mid-16th century. The area officially became part of the United States some 200 years later, at the end of the U.S.-Mexican War. Today, the city is famous for its near-perfect weather, miles and miles of pristine beaches, our proud history with the U.S. Navy and, of course, Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. But it’s also a city steeped in history. From the frontier days of the wild West to World War II on up to the thriving and diverse community of today, San Diego is an endlessly fascinating city. So let’s go exploring!
