Let’s jump right in and get the obvious out of the way. Mention San Diego to most anyone, and one or more of the following attractions will most certainly be a topic of conversation: the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, Sea World, Birch Aquarium, Petco Park—home of the Padre’s, The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch®, Balboa Park, and the USS Midway Museum. Also, it goes without saying that San Diego has some of the most beautiful beaches in North America; drawing professional and amateur surfers alike from around the globe.

Now that we have that out of the way, which is a rather impressive list on San Diego’s Curriculum Vitae, let’s look at what really pumps-up the San Diego area, and makes it a great place to live, work, and raise a family. Apart from its world famous attractions, the residents of San Diego County-North are what give it life.
