About San Diego: San Diego is located in Southern California on the sunny shores of the Pacific Ocean. It is very close to the Mexican border. This is a tranquil and ancient city with a warm climate. The long stretches of sandy beaches and clear ocean water make this one of California's permier holiday destinations. Other than the elegant and beautiful seaside landscape, this city is also an important naval base and port. Some of the naval vessels are open to the public or you can take a trip out to sea on a tourist boat. Because of its proximity to Mexico and many citizens of Mexican descent, the city is full to the brim with Mexican style. The many local Mexican delicacies are a must-try, especially burritos, taquitos and enchiladas.
