San Diego's sunny countenance and breezy confidence make it one of the most liveable cities in the United States. Its mild climate, sunny skies, beautiful beaches, islands and peninsulas attract people from all over the world. "America's most perfect weather" means you can work on your tan and enjoy the great outdoors all year round.
San Diego boasts more than 86 golf courses, 1,200 tennis courts, 60 miles of beaches and a water park covering about 2000 hectares. To the east, an hour's drive from the city centre, is the alpine landscape of Mount Laguna. Just an hour out from this imposing mountain scenery, hot winds blow through the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, making San Diego County one of the most geographically diverse areas in the world. The icing on the cake? Mexico is just 20 minutes south of the city.
