  • With a population of more than 1.2 million (the country's seventh-largest city), what could San Diego (JOBS) not offer you? You can mix and mingle with people from all over the world, who, like you, have come to settle on the warm Pacific coast. Since the city is so close to the Mexican border, the Spanish influence is in the air … and everywhere else, too. You can also sample the local spicy dishes! Of course, to match the city's multiculturalism, there is an array of cuisine to try and more than 6,000 restaurants to try it in.

    When you want to do something other than enjoy the outdoors by walking along the ocean front, relaxing and tanning on the beach, or taking in a round of golf, then some excitement could be in order! Why not watch the San Diego Padres in action? When the Padres are not playing, catch some San Diego Chargers action. Need something quieter? How about a visit to the San Diego Aerospace Museum, complete with all kinds of space stuff – interesting for you and the kids. Or for some more highbrow entertainment, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the San Diego Museum of Art, the San Diego Symphony, or one of many other cultural events.

    Or for some truly exciting entertainment, San Diego style, go on a whale-watching expedition to see the annual migration of California gray whales as they make their way up the coast for the season. Nothing is more awe-inspiring than seeing these giant creatures leap from the ocean!

    If you are looking for a big-city lifestyle with culture and amenities galore, and great weather year-round, then San Diego is certainly what you are looking for! Bienvenidos!
