If you absolutely love where you live, and we mean absolutely love – the kind of love where you wake up giddy with excitement, run downstairs, pop the kettle on and then rush outside to take a big lungful of, “wow, this place is awesome” – then we’re happy for you. We really are. If, however, you don’t get hit by this tidal wave of euphoria, or you can’t be dealing with any more seasonal changes, it may be time to look for a pocket of the planet where there are no flaws.
Yup. We’re talking about San Diego.
It’s the land of surf, sun, laidback attitudes, hilltop hikes, twisting trails, beautiful beaches, delicious beers and a culinary scene that will make your taste buds trip the light fantastic every time you sit down to chew. It’s why thrill-seekers and sun-chasers from the world over pack up their belongings, holla at mybekins.com and flock to this subtle slice of utopia in search of the good life. But if that’s not enough to sway you, here’s a list of irresistible reasons to get your San Diego on:
Summertime, All The Time
You’ve not come across anything like it – trust us. Even the celebrity mouse trap that is LA can’t compete with San Diego, America’s most temperate city. And it’s all thanks to that gorgeous coastal breeze, keeping this metropolis around the fabled 70-degree mark – not too hot and a long way from cold.
Sandy Toes, Salty Hair
It doesn’t get more beautiful than a San Diego beach. And we’re not just talking about the summertime vibes either. No way. Those winter months are as dreamy as it comes, the long stretches of soft white sand refreshingly free of people, meaning you get to enjoy the peaceful sound of waves slapping against your shore.
Fine Dining At Its Finest
If you’re a chain restaurant kind of person, stay put because San Diego ain’t for you. It’s a place that does fine dining only, a place where delicious eateries pop up from nowhere, independent restaurants enjoy being the talk of the town and a place where you get to dabble in new cuisines every single weekend. Oh, and they have the best – and we mean the best – fish tacos… in the world.
It doesn’t matter what your evening vibe feels like, San Diego has it by the bucket load. Dive bars and speakeasies, high-end clubs and low-key rooftops. It’d got the wow-factor moments and places for those who just can’t stand pretentiousness. It’s got beach bars and Vegas-style casinos. It’s got sophisticated cocktail joints and the sort of taverns that only have one beer on tap. Like we said, it’s got something for everyone.
The thing that struck us most about this part of the globe is the great outdoors, and not just all there is to do in it, but just how breathtaking it is to stare at. It’s like nowhere else you have ever been. Nowhere.
