San Diego is located in the northern Mexican border (border with Tijuana, Mexico), and a base U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, with the beach for miles in length. Its a big city with small town flair, and a visit is all about relaxing and enjoying some of the best weather and beaches in the nation.
Its biggest attractions are the city’s famous zoo and sibling safari park, Legoland, and the Sea World theme park, but for many renting a bike and exploring the shore and the quaint shops and eateries of the Gaslamp district and Coronado Beach is enough entertainment. Its relies on tourism, trade, agriculture, shipbuilding industry, the military, bio-technology, computer science and electronics.
However, during World War II the US Navy made San Diego its Pacific Command Center, and the military continues to dominate the local economy, alongside tourism. Understandably, the long white beaches, sunny weather, and bronzed bodies give rise to the city's well-deserved nickname, "Sandy Ego."
The City of San Diego is located in San Diego Bay. Coronado and Point Loma separate the bay from the ocean. Ocean Beach is located on the west side of Point Loma. Mission Beach and Pacific Beach lie between the ocean and Mission Bay, a man-made water park. La Jolla, an affluent community, lies in the northern Pacific Coast. Mount Soledad in La Jolla offers views from northern San Diego County to Mexico.
