San Diego Map

San Diego is often overshadowed by Los Angeles which is found just a couple of hours to its north. Los Angeles is the second largest city in the US, and the largest in the Western US, not to mention it is a center of the entertainment industry and looms large in everyone`s imaginations. But don`t be fooled - San Diego is no small town, and has plenty of beauty and excitement to offer.

San Diego is actually the eighth largest city in the United States and has a population of around 1.3 million. The metro area has around 3.1 million, making this a bonafide metropolis. It was once a part of Mexico, until it was lost to the United States in war and became part of the union (along with all of California) in 1850. It lies immediately next to the Mexican border, with Tijuana essentially forming part of the San Diego metro area, despite the border in between.

It is a beautifully scenic place with gorgeous beaches and palm trees lining the streets, with mild to warm weather year round. It is one of the most pleasant places to live in the U.S.

Here is a basic San Diego map showing the central area and major roads.
