I love living in California! It is a beautiful place to live and raise a family. I really enjoy exploring and traveling all over this beautiful state. I’m a born and raised Californian and I love sharing why I love it! I grew up in Orange County and then moved to San Diego to attend college. And I now call North San Diego my forever home.
California has so much to offer and really makes for the perfect place to live.
From where I live, and depending on the season, I can be in the mountains playing in the snow or enjoying an ocean sunset all within a couple hours.
We can also be enjoying the cool temperatures of Northern California with a 6 hour scenic drive up the coast.
Here are 8 reasons I LOVE living in San Diego:
Reason #1- I recently took a trip to Carmel, California and was just blown away by the breathtaking sunsets over the ocean and the animals in the natural habitat. It was a nice drive up to Carmel and I love that San Diego is so close to the north and that the freeways and roads have such beautiful scenery to look at on the way.
Reason #2- It’s a great place to raise a family. We love that there are multiple pumpkin patches for the kids to pick their own pumpkins right where they are grown. We also have tons of farmers markets and fresh fruits and veggies. The girls love to pick their own strawberries and blueberries.
Reason #3- Oceanside Harbor. The harbor is a gorgeous place to walk and enjoy the fresh air. For me walking around and taking in the blue water, colorful plant life, and boats coming in and out of the harbor is both stimulating and relaxing at the same time. I often go there with my girls to take a break from the computer or to clear my head. There are also some great restaurants there that are perfect for families or date night!
Reason #4- The sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are some of the best in the world. We get a multitude of colors with almost every combination you could imagine.
Reason #5- The San Diego Zoo and Safari Park are practically in our backyard. We love to see the animals and we love all the hard work they are doing to conserve endangered and threatened animals. Plus it teaches the girls how important conservation is.
Reason #6- We can be at the ocean in the morning and playing in the snow shortly after lunch. There is something for everyone in San Diego and it’s all within a close driving distance. Shopping, dining, good schools, great parks, and so much more make it easy to live here and enjoy every moment together as a family.
Reason #7- From walking paths and hills to go hiking on, to riding trails galore, San Diego is known for it’s generous amount of outdoor activities. My girls have been riding for years and there are an abundant amount of ranches and horse facilities!
Reason #8- Plenty of splace for the kids to play and explore. We live in a community where all the houses have lot’s of land. We love having this extra room.
When we purchased our home years ago in San Diego it was one of the best decisions we made. Owning our home gives us a sense of belonging and confidence that we are rooted as a family. Buying a home gives you so many benefits and provides economic stability to not only your own family, but also the whole community. We love being proud California homeowners! If you are thinking of buying a home, I totally recommend it. California is such a fabulous state to live in. There are so many good REALTORS® that can help you through the whole process.
