As you will soon discover, San Diego County combines the charm of its historic Spanish heritage with the bustling energy of one of the nation’s most diversified and innovative regional economies. Fueled by the advanced research in San Diego’s world-class universities and institutes, the region is nationally recognized as one of the best places to launch a new business or pursue a career.

The elements that contribute to San Diego’s phenomenal growth and development are also the drivers of a high quality of life. One of the world’s finest year-round climates combines bright sunshine with comfortable temperatures and the serenity of the Pacific Ocean. Residents can easily travel from the beach or mountains to the hauntingly beautiful desert. At the same time, they can enjoy the changing of seasons in the mountainside town of Julian or drive a short distance to the lake and alpine recreation in the mountains that tower above Los Angeles.

Few areas in the nation or even in the world offer as many lifestyle and environmental possibilities within a reasonable distance of major employment centers as San Diego County. Sheer land mass factors into this equation, since San Diego County sprawls over a vast area that is approximately the same size as the state of Connecticut. Because the county is so expansive and geographically varied, the communities that dot the landscape are usually categorized by regions.
