San Diego boasts great weather, beautiful beaches and fantastic Mexican food. The Pacific Ocean is steps away, offering unique coastal towns and great national parks. The strong surfing and sailing community and even stronger Naval presence make this laid-back California city unlike anything else in the state--or the United States.
San Diego offers two major public transportation options: The Metropolitan Transit System, an extensive bus system throughout the city and surrounding counties, and the San Diego Trolley, a light rail servicing the downtown area. The bus is popular with commuters, while the light rail serves visitors in more touristy areas. Despite these two options, a car is still the easiest and most efficient way to get around this sprawling city. However, biking is still a great way to travel in and between the coastal towns.
