About San Diego

San Diego is located in Southern California on the sunny shores of the Pacific Ocean. It is very close to the Mexican border. This is a tranquil and ancient city with a warm climate. The long stretches of sandy beaches and clear ocean water make this one of California's permier holiday destinations. Other than the elegant and beautiful seaside landscape, this city is also an important naval base and port. Some of the naval vessels are open to the public or you can take a trip out to sea on a tourist boat. Because of its proximity to Mexico and many citizens of Mexican descent, the city is full to the brim with Mexican style. The many local Mexican delicacies are a must-try, especially burritos, taquitos and enchiladas.

Guo’s_TravelNote   
Colorado is a small island in the Gulf of San Diego, called Coronado in English. To be exact, it should be the peninsula, and at the other end of the island, there is a cross-sea bridge connected to downtown San Diego. As the car passes over the bridge, you can clearly see the different views on both sides of the bridge. On one side is the base of the US Pacific Fleet. The seaside is docked with aircraft carriers and numerous frigates. On the other side of the bridge are the fancy mansions and tourists from all over the world. Colorado Island belongs to the affluent area of San Diego, like the back garden of the Holy Land, where the exquisite independent villas are hidden behind the greenery, the roads are clean and sparsely populated.
