We love to blog about San Diego, California. America's finest city is our home and we love its beaches including La Jolla, Del Mar, Pacific beach, San Diego & Mission Bay, plus the historic Gaslamp quarter in downtown. We also enjoy visiting the Balboa Park museums. San Diego offers a lot for any visitor with its world class tourism spots and the locals love it with its mild year around climate and micro climates form beaches, desert to the snow on the mountains within a short drive to Big Bear. San Diegans also love sports from beach volleyball, surfing, golf and its pro teams including NFL football AFC west team, the San Diego Chargers and MLB baseball's best stadium Petco park featuring the San Diego Padres. Come and visit San Diego, you will be AMAZED !
